A record label is on a mission to educate schoolchildren about illegal downloading by introducing them to the music making process.

Shed Records is visiting participating schools and letting youngsters play with music software, music instruments and recording equipment to give them an idea of the work that goes into making a song, reported the BBC.

They believe that by getting to young people from an early age, they can make a positive impact on the music industry.

This concentrated effort is being supported by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI), which represents the recorded music business.

Paul Shedden, head of label at Shed Records, told the news provider: "Everything from the songwriters through to production, artists, engineers, radio pluggers, and PR companies – all those people need to get paid. Otherwise they can't continue doing the jobs they love and the music you love will stop coming out."

However, many of the schoolchildren said that this wouldn't necessarily stop them from downloading music illegally.

Last year the BPI revealed that although the UK's legal digital music market was growing, record levels of illegal downloading presented a "serious threat" to the future of the country's online music market.
