Why taking up an instrument has struck a chord for so many
Growing up in foster homes, Jaz Ampaw-Farr says learning a musical instrument seemed out of reach for someone from her background.

"I grew up in real poverty, working class, and mixed race; music lessons were never a thing," she says. "Every person I saw playing an instrument was white and mostly male."
However, when the coronavirus lockdown happened, Ms Ampaw-Farr wanted to change that tune.
"I thought, it's happening, it's time to reframe that story and seize the opportunity," says the 50-year-old. "I had no events or work to do. In that moment I saw an unique opportunity to focus on me."
So Ms Ampaw-Farr, a motivational speaker and boss of UK support coach firm, Human First, downloaded a piano-learning app, and bought a keyboard.
She then started to try to pick up songs from artists such as John Lennon, Ed Sheeran and Lewis Capaldi.
"I started playing songs I knew, and other people would say that sounds nice. It made me feel good."
She says she would typically practice for at least 10 minutes a day. "Sometimes it was longer, sometimes I'd miss a day. But it's amazing how quickly you can progress."
As the pandemic gave many of us a lot more spare time at home, Ms Ampaw-Farr is far from alone in taking-up a hobby since March 2020, a number of studies have shown.
One report by research firm Mintel found that 71% of UK adults were spending more time on a hobby, while one in five had taken up a new one, and 27% had rediscovered a former passion.
