Rockschool to Invest Directly in Grass Root Activity Replacing Its Sponsorship of Music for Youth

Rockschool, the world’s top provider of rock and pop music exams, has taken the decision after three very successful years of sponsorship of Music for Youth (MfY) to divert the funds to invest directly in grassroots activity.
‘We are hugely proud of the achievements we have made working with MfY over the last three years’ said Norton York, Chairman of Rockschool. ‘We really feel that we have significantly helped them reach their goals of engaging and inspiring hundreds of young pop musicians, supporting them in opening doors for these you people to gain valuable live performance experience and aided them in delivering up to seventy five regional music festivals including the National Festival in Birmingham and the Schools Proms at the Royal Albert Hall. By working together I am confident that Rockschool and MfY have given a large number of young people the confidence they need to take their music to the next level and raised the profile of rock and pop music in their activities.’
Rockschool, The UK’s leading accredited popular music examination board, plans to take the funds now available and pursue the direct support of music teachers and students. Rockschool will be announcing a series of initiatives over the coming months that will provide even greater opportunities for people who want to learn more about rock and pop music.
