Rocksteady Backs Heavy Music Awards 2017

The UK’s largest rock school for children has been named an “Official Supporter” of the Heavy Music Awards 2017.

Now in its tenth year, Rock Steady Music School is inspiring a new generation of young people and teaches more than 10,000 four to eleven year old’s every week to play music in their own bands, while also providing full-time employment opportunities to credible musicians all over the country.

Music industry veteran and CEO of Rocksteady, Scott Monks said: “I have been impressed by the level of involvement Heavy Music Awards has achieved from the industry and also their voting mechanic which uses credible industry experts in a vote to create a list of nominees and then ultimately gives the fans the final say.

“Rocksteady love to celebrate all that is good about the music scene, plus we love a good party so I said count us in!”

Explaining why it is important to empower young people through music at an early age, Monks added: “Through our unique methodologies and passionate culture developed over the last ten years, we are able to get any child playing real music on quality instruments in their own band within ten minutes, even if they have never played before.

“This has a massive impact on their confidence and is transformational for music education.”

The team at Rocksteady will attend HMA17 at House of Vans London on August 24.

Andy Pritchard, co-founder of the Heavy Music Awards, said: “Discovering and nurturing talent is such an important part of the music scene and we are very proud to be working with Rocksteady Music School to showcase the opportunities they provide for young children, many of whom will be picking up a guitar or drumstick for the first time.”

Rocksteady is the largest and fastest growing rock school for children in the UK.

In addition to weekly band lessons to more than 10,000 kids, Rocksteady also delivers free live music experiences to tens of thousands of children every year.

Through its in-house, self-funded Rocksteady Foundation, Rocksteady also provides free charity days and hundreds of free bursary spaces to young people who would not otherwise be able to access the programme.
