    Great for those kids, some of whom are household names. I come from the east end of London myself but with Irish parents and a fine Catholic primary school with a fine Methodist music teacher who sang with the George Mitchell Singers and the Savoy Chapel. It all made for classical music and singing accessible and encouraged. Hence I had a fine career as a soprano and teacher of singing unto the pandemic. Anything to get the perceived snobbery out of it all in this country will help. Never had that problem with Kenyan and Tanzanian kids when I toured with British Council funding to the most deprived areas as an unknown soprano to them with no frocks to sign. Culminated with the ballet school of street kids attached to the Kenya School of Music in Nairobi dancing very tastefully to my singing of Britten’s Les Illuminations woth a very fine Kenyan pianist. No class system there to negotiate, just the very rich and those in abject poverty.
