Casio has announced a partnership with classical music sensation Myleene Klass, to celebrate the companies 30 year anniversary of producing world class digital pianos.
As part of the anniversary celebrations, Casio, with the active support of the EMI Music Sound Foundation launch their new Pianos for Schools initiative, aimed at encouraging childrens involvement in music.

Myleene Klass says; The Pianos for Schools project with Casio and EMI Music Sound Foundation is something I feel passionate about and its a great chance to get the message out there that music in education is a great thing.
I am really pleased to be a part of this scheme as its so important to encourage music in schools and to give children the tools and passion for learning where we can.
Even though she is very young I encourage my daughter to play the piano and I would be so pleased if she has the opportunity and support to continue in school throughout her education.
Schemes like this can also give children who may not otherwise get the chance to engage with music in school the opportunity to and this can only enhance their all round learning experience.
