The Rock Project is the UK’s premier school for children’s contemporary music tuition. We offer lessons in Guitar, Drums and Bass Guitar. As part of the weekly 2 hour session you will also take part in a Plug & Play session where we help you to form your own band!

At The Rock Project students are offered lessons in Guitar, Bass Guitar or Drums. Sometimes a student will sign up to have lessons in a certain instrument and wish they had chosen to play another instrument. If this happens please speak to us so that we can do our best to try to accommodate them.

The Musicmaster Quiz is not just about Rock and Pop. Students learn about all genres of music as well as the theory and history of music whilst having fun. The Plug & Play sessions give the students a chance to put into practice what they have learned in their instrumental lessons. We also use this part of the session to encourage teamwork and to help develop the students social interaction skills. Even though we encourage as many to take part as possible, we would not insist if someone doesn’t feel comfortable.

Over the years we have seen many children who were shy and reserved when they first started at The Rock Project, turn into confident, proficient performers who have gone on to play as part of a band or as solo acts and in some cases record their own CD.

The Rock Project School of Rock & Pop is held in a positive, encouraging environment where hard work, enthusiasm and high standards produce excellent results. All tutors have had an enhanced police disclosure and are dedicated to creating friendly, caring and inspiring classes where each student can flourish and make new friends with fellow would-be musicians.

A typical Junior Rock Project Session (7-11 year olds)

Singing in a group with all the other junior students. -  Throughout the year you will sing some of your favourite songs from bands such as Queen, Black Eyed Peas as well as songs from your favourite films.

The Whiteboard game. -  Draw a picture on the Whiteboard, it can be anything to do with music: A Band, Singer, Song or something else! The other students have to guess the answer!

Plug & Play -  This is your chance to put into practice what you learnt in last weeks lesson. A drummer will have the chance to perform with maybe a couple of guitarists and a bass player – this is your first step to being part of a band! Don’t worry if you don’t feel confident enough for the first few weeks, we will never ask you to perform in front of other people until you feel ready. (Although most students can’t wait to get up and play!!)

Musicmaster Quiz. -  The quiz is a fun and exciting end to the first hour, you will be in a team with 3 of your friends and each week you will be asked 10 questions. Points are awarded for correct answers and at the end of the year Showcase Concert there are medals or trophies for the winning team!

Your Lesson. -  The second hour of the session is when you have a lesson in an instrument of your choice you can choose either Guitar, Drums or Bass Guitar. Our team of experienced tutors choose the songs that you learn to play – but – if you have some favourite songs just let us know and if its suitable we will try to fit it in! During your lesson you will also work from a ‘Rockschool’ book and if you want to you can take a ‘Rockschool’ exam.

A typical Senior Rock Project Session (11-16 year olds)
Your Lesson -  The first hour of the session is when you have a lesson in an instrument of your choice in a group of 4 or 5 students of similar ability. You can choose either Guitar, Drums or Bass Guitar. Our team of experienced tutors choose the songs that you learn to play each week although we are always open to suggestions from students! We try to learn a new song each week but sometimes if a song is more difficult we will carry on trying to perfect it the following week. As part of your lesson you will follow the ‘Rockschool’ syllabus and if you want to you can take a ‘Rockschool’ graded exam.

Plug & Play -  This is your chance to put into practice what you learnt in your lesson. A drummer will have the chance to perform with a couple of guitarists and a bass player and perform the song. It is usual for all senior students to get up and perform in the Plug & Play session as it is performing (and of course practising at home) that will help you to improve your playing. Throughout the year we assess which songs would be suitable to be performed in the end of year Showcase Concert. Once all students have played the ‘song of the week’ the session is thrown open to any students who want to get up and play something that they will have prepared themselves. This may be a song that we have learnt in a previous session or something completely new. This part of the Plug & Play session is usually where bands start to form.

Musicmaster Quiz. -  The quiz brings the session to a finish. You will be in a team with 3 other students and each week you will be asked 10 questions. Points are awarded each week for correct answers and at the end of the year Showcase Concert there are medals or trophies for the winning team! Bonus points can be awarded to teams throughout the session for different reasons maybe for performing on their own in Plug & Play or getting up for the first time to do something new in Plug & Play or maybe for helping out another student in some way – but – Points can also be deducted for various reasons so beware!
