School music lessons: not enough music

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-17226187

There is not enough music in music lessons in many schools in England, say Ofsted inspectors.

In some lessons, teachers do not play or sing a single note, according to a report looking at music education as a whole.

Inspectors found girls were twice as likely as boys to take part in extra-curricular music in primary schools.

The study was based on evidence from inspections of 90 primary and 90 secondary schools from 2008 to 2011.

Out of these, 68 were rated "outstanding" for music education and 41 were judged "inadequate".
 

Didn't BFG (BFG for PM!) say something rather similar not long ago about GCSE music being... well, rather pants?
