Here is an article from the BBC about their 'Music Live' event and the Instrument Amnesty program. Through Instrument Amnesty, thousands of instruments, will be donated for use by the kiddies in school. It is a great cause, so get involved if you can!
A host of top pop stars have joined forces to support the BBC's Music Live event, by donating instruments to wannabe musicians.
The impressive list reads like a Who's Who of rock'n'roll, with David Bowie, Sting, Sir Elton John and The Corrs among those contributing.
The Instrument Amnesty scheme is a joint project involving the BBC and the National Foundation for Youth Music.
Its aim is to collect around 10,000 instruments and pass them on to schoolchildren to encourage them to take up music.
BBC Music Live is a five-day celebration of live music, which will run from 25-29 May.
The huge festival will feature more than 5,000 events across the UK, including concerts from the likes of Paul Weller and Sir Elton, street festivals and a car horn symphony.
Under the scheme, instruments collected in good working order will be given to local music services and community music groups.
