Worries over Wales music education budget cuts

A call has been made for music education in Wales to be ring fenced - Wales is currently the only part of the UK which does not do this.

Jenny Rees has been looking at the situation in Rhondda Cynon Taf, where there is a campaign to spare music education from cuts.
