Janet Beaumont was an inspirational and much loved piano teacher.

This programme profiles her life, and asks why there has been a music festival set up in her name in her home-town of Huddersfield.

With the children taking part at the festival as a backdrop, we talk to Janet's family, friends and pupils to discover why she made such an enormous impact on the musical soul of a town.

It is the story of an exceptional woman who worked all her life without great accolade, but made a huge difference to many people's musical lives.

The producer of this programme was a pupil of Janet's.
