Jupiter clarinets donated to school
Brass and woodwind instrument manufacturer Jupiter has donated several clarinets to a Sussex school as part of the Music for All campaign.
Children in the orchestra of Eastbrook Primary School were the lucky recipients of the instruments, reports MI-Pro.
Rob Castle, managing director of Jupiter's British distributor Korg, said Music for All is a worthy cause as it allows youngsters the chance to play musical instruments - an opportunity many may not have had before.
"For some years we have seen the benefits playing music can have in school through our Jupiter Soundstart programme and we are happy to expand this further now with Music for All," he added.
The patron of the Music for All charity is Aled Jones, who has previously spoken of his ambition to get some kind of musical instrument into every home in the UK.
Comedian and part-time drummer Al Murray has also recently signed up as an ambassador for the organisation.
