Royal Conservatory finds harmony in Lang Lang foundation partnership
A Chinese piano superstar’s educational foundation has launched a new partnership with a Canadian institution – beginning at a U.S. inner-city school. The Lang Lang International Music Foundation has selected the Royal Conservatory of Music’s curriculum to be the basis of its Keys of Inspiration program. The program partners with schools in underprivileged areas, providing teaching materials and piano labs for students between Grades 4 and 8 for three years.
While an official launch is in the works for this spring, the collaboration actually began in the fall, when about 200 students at a public school in the Harlem neighbourhood of New York began receiving lessons in new piano labs using the RCM system of curriculum. They are now preparing for their exams in June.
