Rock School is a five week course of Jammin’, Recordin’ and Giggin’, specifically designed to give young people the ultimate rock band experience.
Over the 6 session experience, each student will form a new band with people of their own age, learn to play tracks by their favourite artists, write their own original material, record their songs in a professional recording studio and take part in exciting ensemble sessions. At the end of the project a Grand Finale Gig will showcase participants work at a prestigious, national music venue!
Rock School is open to young people between 11 – 16 years (or from school years 6 to 11) and living in West Leeds.
As part of Leeds’ Find Your Talent Programme, Rock School will be hosting (at The Rock And Roll Circus Studios in Armley) a free-to-access five week course, running on Saturdays during the second half of the Autumn Term 2009.
The project will work with young people from West Leeds who have an established interest in music and a desire to improve their skills. Participants do not need to be of a high standard on their chosen instrument, but they must have displayed an enthusiasm and desire to engage with musical activity, either in school, at out of school activities, within their community, or within peer groups.
