ABRSM’s Chief Executive, Michael Elliott, said: “We’re incredibly proud of what Classical 100 continues to achieve in 6,000 schools around the country but have always believed that parents have a fundamental role to play in supporting their child’s music. Many families are currently spending a lot more time together so this is a great opportunity for them to enjoy music with each other and support the progression of those at home who are learning to sing or play an instrument.”
