Casio has donated a Celviano Grand Hybrid piano to help BRIT School students with their academic, vocational and artistic studies.
The school is the latest to work with Casio on its #ActionInMusic campaign, which aims to shine a spotlight on music education and work of the UK’s music teachers.
The campaign was launched earlier this year by former music teacher and BRITs Critics Choice nominee Laura Mvula. For part of the initiative, Casio has also teamed up with Mvula to launch Classic FM and ABRSM’s Music Teacher of the Year Awards 2017.
The piano maker is now doing a regional tour of the UK, visiting schools and shopping centres to raise awareness of the initiative and showcase the Celviano Grand Hybrid.

Casio has created a series of short films during the tour, with the newest one featuring both students and teachers at the BRIT School discussing their musical inspirations.
Check out what they had to say in the video below:
The Awards will be presented at a major event at the Barbican Centre on 7th July 2017. Organised by ABRSM, this event showcases the very best in music education shining a spotlight not only on the Music Teachers of the Year but also on the next generation of performers and teachers.
Casio, Classic FM and ABRSM are encouraging schools, music teachers, students and parents across the UK to nominate a music teacher who has had an outstanding impact on their own lives, or the output of their schools or institutions.
