br /> The electric guitar manufacturer is to supply instruments to the establishment to help students with their studies.

Francis Seriau, founder of the school, has hailed the development, as he considers Gibson a "fantastic" and "iconic" brand.

"The benefits to our students will be huge," he commented.

"Imagine having access to all these fantastic guitars for studying."

The music school equips students with a variety of guitar skills, including playing acoustic guitar, finger picking and using a slide bar.

Various aspects of musical theory are also on the curriculum, including the mechanics of transcribing and arranging music, as well as sight reading.

In addition, students are given the opportunity to use music software packages and apply their playing skills in a live performance scenario.

This comes after Sting, former bass guitar player in The Police, told BBC News that it is "vitally important" that young people are exposed to music.
