We are very proud to announce that the Castle Rock Music Maestros initiative has been named as a finalist in the 2016 Music Teacher Awards for Excellence!
Dubbed 'the Oscars of the music education world', these prestigious awards will be presented at a gala dinner and ceremony in London on 25th February 2016.
There are 13 categories of award altogether; Music Maestros features in the Best Musical Initiative category and will be judged against other exciting and inspiring initiatives from all over the UK.
The Castle Rock Music Maestros scheme was launched in September 2014 and gives students and parents the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument, providing free tuition, loan instruments and transport home afterwards. It is supported by the Leicestershire Schools Music Service and other notables such as conductor Richard Laing.
