Casio ‘Action in Music’ Initiative

Casio, renowned producers of digital hybrid pianos, have launched ‘Action in Music’, an initiative that shines a spotlight on outstanding music education and raises awareness of its importance within the curriculum.

Fronted by singer Laura Mvula, the campaign rewards the UK’s most inspiring music teachers through the Music Teacher of the Year Awards, in conjunction with Classic FM. Casio is taking ‘Action in Music’ on a tour of secondary schools to film music classes, talk to pupils about their relationship with music and encourage them to nominate their favourite music teacher.

In all schemes of work and lessons from now on! Excellent day, wish I would have come years ago.

Brilliant ideas to take forward into my own teaching… a fantastic day – left with lots of new ideas and strategies…

Kate Baxter, Manchester Metropolitan University

The children I am working with are responding to positively. They are very keen to learn new music and don’t not feel threatened to play. They enjoy the ‘have a go’ and ‘just play’ strategy.
