FAQ

 yrockschool

What age is YRock School for?

In general we recommend YRock School for those over 11 years old, looking to play in bands. There is normally a good age mix and what’s more important to us is that the young people are keen to learn and have some background in music.


How do I book a place?

There are several ways that you can book a place. The quickest way is through this website, we take secure payments through PayPal and you can click on the link that takes you to course dates here. We are also happy to take payments in cash or through bank payments, please contact us on 01555 455 123 for more information and we will be happy to assist and answer any questions you might have. If for whatever reason you can't reach us by phone you can contact us by email by writting to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

My child is not quite 11, will this be a problem?

No. If as a parent or guardian you think your child would benefit from the course then we have no objections. Please remember that our age guide is there for the benefit of the young people and we would not recommend those under 10 unless you have spoken to us in advance.

My child has only been playing for a short period of time and very much a beginner, are they too inexperienced?

Not at all, all we ask is that you have basic knowledge of your instrument, so if you know a few chords on the guitar or can play a simple rock beat then you will fit right in.

Please remember that the focus for the week is group performance, there will be time set aside for individual development, tuition is focussed on group performance.

What time does it run from?

We normally run for 10.30-4.30, we will let you know In advance if there is a change. Apparently any early over the holidays doesn't go down too well with the teenagers.

What happens at lunch time?

We break for an hour and you can either bring a packed lunch or (providing parental permission has been given) you can go out to the local shops and see what is on offer.

Testimonials

YRock School is a fantastic experience for any teenager and a great way to get them out of bed in the shool holidays! Because of his dyslexia my son's confidence was low - being in a 'band' and developing and recording his own music has given him a spring in his step and newly found confidence. He has returned to Y Rock School numerous times and always loves the experience. In fact it is the only club he has ever wanted to go to. The facilitator is very knowledgeable,  non-judgemental and has a great way with the teens. They are treated in a grown-up way and respond well to this, writing their own songs, growing as a musicians, and having aspirations for the future. After the club, the bands are given lots of opportunities to play at gigs organised by YRock - this would be a great launchpad for a new band.

Lisa Buck - Mum

 

Y Rock School is a fun place where  I met lots of friends and learned how to play in a band. My drum playing skills have also improved from being there. I'd recommend it to anyone - beginners or experts.

Sam Covey - Drummer

 

The team at YRock work very hard and get the best out of the young people, it's a great course for any young musician and is a huge confidence builder for many
