Music changes lives

Filmed over the course of a school year, Music Changes Lives follows the progress of two Dublin schools - St. Agnes's in Crumlin, and St. Ultan's in Cherry Orchard, both of which have taken inspiration from the Venezuelan project El Sistema and are providing compulsory music tuition for all children in the schools. The results are astounding. Music Changes Lives is a groundbreaking four part observational documentary series about the power of music as an 'intervention' tool for positive change, extraordinary personal stories show how the simple act of learning to play an instrument can give children, who have no other real chance in life, a fresh start and a brighter future.
