Moving to a new base is a sound investment
THERE are people singing, guitar strings being strummed and the distinctive sounds of the violin playing in Hedon Road's latest addition.
Music Academy For Schools & Communities, which provides tutoring and workshops among a number of other musical activities, has relocated its creative business to Hedon Road.
The new centre is more than double the size of its previous Saltend home.
The east Hull premises now provides the business with four studios, rather than just two, a new shop selling instruments and has also allowed the team to expand.

Karl Wilcock, who runs the business alongside his wife Jayne, said: "We have more than doubled our space and been able to take on another three tutors because of the amount of space we have.
"We now have seven tutors working here and we will be able to offer services we didn't have chance to before."
From saxophone and bass guitar tutoring, to gigging courses, recording facilities and a chance for people to perform at events, Music Academy For School & Communities provides a creative musical service for all ages.
Mr Wilcock said: "Our ethos is to try to give children and adults an opportunity to play instruments and also be involved in groups and bands to perform live music. We want to give them confidence.
"We offer something slightly different and a bit more fun and people have reacted brilliantly to the move, which I think is because it gives us far more space and even a waiting room for parents."
The business spent £12,000 on the refurbishment of the building.
Mr Wilcock said: "The building was previously a children's nursery and was an open plan space.
"We have fitted walls and have redecorated throughout to create separate rooms and make it suitable for our business."
The property is being let from Hessle-based Clarke Weightman commercial property agents.
Carl Bradley, of Clark Weightman, said: "We have done a deal that gives Karl the opportunity for his business to grow."
