Ralph Riddiough is an amateur trombone player and has two children having instrumental tuition in South Ayrshire. The core of this is that instrumental music tuition is part of the curriculum and asking families to pay means part of a child's education has a fee attached.

The petition was supported by Mick Cooke, @toomanycookes1, Composer & musician (former member of Belle & Sebastian). Alison Reeves of Making Music Scotland @MakingMusic_SC, who represent amateur music sectors, also gave support to the petition.
