Casio Music UK has announced a new collaboration with Rockschool.
The digital instrument manufacturer has teamed up with the rock and pop examination body to provide a downloadable digital music book, free with the purchase of selected qualifying instruments. The taster book will engage beginner pianists and keyboard players using songs by contemporary artists and bands such as Coldplay, Alicia Keys and Ray Charles.
Neil Evans, Head of Casio Music UK, said:
‘Working with Rockschool is another way in which we can encourage ‘would be’ beginners to stick with their musical goals and develop as musicians using modern content. A high percentage of learners give up in the early stages simply because they are not engaged or are forced down a more traditional route. We hope to help address this with our unique partnership.’
