Rocksteady, the UK’s largest rock school, has endorsed the Heavy Music Awards for a second year, as an Industry Supporter.

Rocksteady is inspiring the next generation of musicians, every week teaching more than 16,000 four to eleven years-olds to play real music in their own bands. Rocksteady also provide unique full-time employment opportunities to credible musicians all over the country.

Heavy music fan and CEO of Rocksteady, Scott Monks, revealed why Rocksteady chose to support the HMAs once again.

“Last year’s Heavy Music Awards were a blast!” he revealed.

“More importantly our staff and kids loved us being involved and I’m excited to see what the HMAs will deliver this year.

“Good luck to everyone who makes the shortlist.”

The finalists will be announced on April 25th in a special HMA18 Launch Night at Gorilla, Manchester, with public voting to decide the winners opening the same night.

Iain Johnson, Co-Founder of the Heavy Music Awards said: “We are thrilled to welcome Rocksteady back to the HMAs.

“Nurturing young, talented musicians and just having fun with music at a young age is so important and it’s great that we can help fly the flag for this school and the important work that they do.”

Through its in-house, self-funded Foundation, Rocksteady also provides free charity days and free bursary spaces to kids who would not otherwise be able to access the programmed. Over the last year Rocksteady has delivered free music experiences to over 200,000 children.
