Centre Stage announce percussion partnership with Music School

Centre Stage Percussion will provide the acclaimed LES Music School of Loughborough Endowed Schools with their musical needs.

Endowed

 

Centre Stage Percussion has announced that they have entered into a formal partnership with Loughborough Endowed Schools for the ongoing supply of its equipment to its acclaimed LES Music School.

With six percussion ensembles, bands, orchestras and nearly 100 percussion students, the LES Music School is regarded as one of the most progressive of its kind in the country.

Innovative links

The Wind, Brass & Percussion faculty is headed by Aidan Geary, himself a noted percussionist who played with the likes of YBS and Brighouse & Rastrick, and provides students with a modern, engaging environment as well as one which has already forged innovative links with local conservatoires, universities and bands.

Bespoke

Aidan told 4BR: "The LES Music School has grown tremendously over the last decade and we now have three percussion teachers using bespoke teaching and rehearsal rooms. It's our policy to teach all aspects of percussion from day 1 with pupils encouraged to join ensembles from the outset.

This allows continuity of teaching and produces excellent standards and results. This partnership adds to LES Music School's prestigious 'All Steinway' school status which was awarded earlier this year."

Impressed

He added: "What impressed us about Centre Stage was not only the standard and quality of their full range of products, but also the unbridled enthusiasm that Martin and his team put into the company.

Nothing is too much trouble, and their passion for what they do is remarkable. The company is one of the most progressive we have come across, and we are certain they will develop to be a major market force."

Delight

CSP Managing Director, Martin Gernon told 4BR that he delighted that Centre Stage Percussion has been able to link with such a renowned music school.

"We are delighted to be part of this outstanding partnership arrangement — on which we hope will continue for many years to come and provide a lasting legacy for LES Music School."
