A NORTH Somerset group with 'outstanding' features has been commended by an independent watchdog.
North Somerset Music Service has been told it provides a 'good' tool for young people.
The group, which supports teachers with music lessons and gives pupils the opportunity to have tuition, was examined by the Department for Children, Schools and Families.
It gives training to teachers and runs festivals and projects and is responsible for teaching about 6,000 young musicians.
Service manager Mark Trego said: "It's great to have received such a positive evaluation of the team's work and to have an independent view of where we should be improving."
The report judged that the overall effectiveness of the music service is very good.
