Students from the Eden School of Music in Edenderry feature in a new documentary from award-winning filmmaker Ken Wardrop.

The proprietor and piano teacher at the Edenderry school, Emilia Paliulyte, and some of her students were selected to take part in the documentary from the same man who produced the charming His & Hers film in 2009.

His latest works, Making the Grade, goes into the lesson room as children, adults and teachers capture a love of music, resulting in a heart-warming relationship between the subjects and the viewer.

Those partaking celebrate the magic of music and the profound effect teaching and learning can have on their lives. 

The film is due to hit cinema screens in mid-April and is already slated for a festival run, including the SXSW Film Festival in Texas.
