The Sistema Scotland orchestra – which offers free music tuition in deprived areas – has been credited for the positive impact it has had on the children who take part.

Teachers in Aberdeen have reported improvements in academic and behavioural skills including listening, concentration, creativity, communications and co-operation.

Sistema Scotland, which was set up in 2008, draws its inspiration from El Sistema in Venezuela.
