The teachers have a wealth of experience in private lessons, schools and further education, and also playing as a band for such clients as Cadbury, Epson and Sega. This experience allows the band members to teach effortlessly and with clear direction.

The day is split into two sections – instrumental tuition and then group rehearsal and performance.

The instrumental tuition takes place in groups split by instrument (drums, bass, guitar, keyboards and vocals) and the tutor offers an introduction to the instrument/music notation, followed by one-on-one guidance on the parts required for the performance. The rock band experience is enjoyable, fun and inclusive so a relaxed and welcoming approach is adopted by the tutors throughout.

The songs for the band to perform are carefully chosen and arranged to allow complete beginners the opportunity to learn simple parts that contribute to the band performing an authentic version of a pop classic.

The audio for the performance is recorded and presented back on CD as a record of the day.

In addition to a range of optional extras such as catering, video and photography, the experience can be fully tailored to meet clients own objectives.
