Casio has announced details of a partnership with musician and television presenter Myleene Klass.

She is to help the company with the Piano for Schools scheme, which is aiming to encourage a greater number of youngsters to play musical instruments.

As part of the initiative, Casio is giving away 50 pianos to schools around the UK, reports MI-Pro.

Klass stated that the project - which forms part of Casio's celebrations of its 30th anniversary - is something she feels passionate about and is happy to be involved with.

"I'm really pleased to be a part of this scheme as it's so important to encourage music in schools and to give children the tools and passion for learning where we can," she explained.

Klass, who began playing the piano herself at the age of four, first shot to fame as a member of pop band Hear'Say and is currently involved in advertising campaigns for both Pantene and Marks and Spencer.
