This is a lovely idea found on Facebook and twitter #OverTheRainbowNHS
If you'd like to record your version of this brilliant learning piece we will feature it on our website, youtube channel and social media sites.
Our Tutors will record their own versions to provide an example of the gratitude to the NHS Heroes who are fighting to deal with this crisis.
Can you play Over the Rainbow for our NHS?
Musicians will be joining together 8PM THURSDAY by playing (Somewhere) Over the Rainbow to give their thanks to the NHS. The general plan is to play in G major or concert pitch.

If you are too shy send a photo of yourself playing with a colouring picture in the background (links below) showing your support. It is all about encouragement and appreciation, we will be through this soon and back together again.
