Head of the service Karin Jenkins said: "All of the staff at Swansea Music are missing their pupils and are really looking forward to making music with them once again but until this can resume we wanted to help to keep them progressing and enjoying music.

"In the past few weeks, we have been working hard developing a digital platform for Swansea Music to be able to deliver quality music tuition to pupils across Swansea."

Swansea Council's Cabinet Member for Education Improvement, Learning and Skills, Jennifer Raynor said: "Swansea Virtual School is proving very popular and it is a resource that is improving and growing daily.

"I'm delighted Swansea Music now has its own section on the site where our young musicians can continue to pursue their love of music."
