According to ABRSM, the certifying body for musical grades, at least 22 million adults used to learn an instrument, but nearly 90% have given up. 

It's a common regret, feeling like if only you'd carried on learning piano, by now you'd be a master. But it's never too late to get back into learning an instrument. 

Whether it's picking up piano again, ukulele playing, African drumming or woodwind, a group lesson is a low pressure way of easing your way back into playing an instrument. 

A mixture of music theory, practice playing in groups, and one-to-one support, an adult learning music course is a great way Yorkshire locals are finding a new hobby. 

Stray FM's Beth Parsons went along to the classes to talk with the tutors and students:
