Making music analysis come to life!

Today marks National Harry Potter Day and to celebrate we wanted to share this wonderful series of YouTube films, analysing the music of Harry Potter by John Williams.

 Here's Tony Hales, our Chairman, with actor David Bradley who plays Filch in the Harry Potter films. They both share a passion for music (as well as football) as David explains:

“I have always enjoyed listening to music and playing music, and I still get great pleasure from singing and playing with my family and friends. Music is for everyone young, old, in between, to enjoy with friends and even with villains. It is fun, encourages us to learn and develop and helps bring us all together regardless of who we are.”
