"The software costs us pound;200 per instrument per year, so that's Pounds 800," says Simon Elledge. "Then there's the hardware: pound;100 each for the keyboard, bass and guitar, pound;150 on the drum pads and pound;300 each for the bass and guitar Midi set-up - so that's a one-off cost of around Pounds 1,000.
"At the moment we're running about 24 kids through a week and charging them pound;1 each. It's something that is within the reach of most schools - we don't even have a particularly large space."
The London Grid for Learning is offering all the capital's 2,600 state schools access to an initial 30 hours of Gigajam free. Gigajam is also working on similar deals around the country.
