Level of experience:
Sadly, we cannot accept beginners or players with limited experience, who should consider joining a Free Session at British School of Rock. Musicians will be streamed so that they are playing in a band with others of the same ability. Established bands will play together whenever possible. If you are unsure whether this is right for your child please contact us so that we can discuss the level of experience required before you make a decision.
What to expect:
After the initial welcome session the week builds swiftly with intensive tuition from your specialist tutor. The week continues with selection of the bands (for those not already in a band), sessions with our choreographer making sure that you look as good as you play, and plenty of rehearsal and tuition with your band. On Friday afternoon we transfer to the auditorium (sorry - we are not brave enough to hold it outdoors!) for technical rehearsals with full PA and lights. The audience arrive on Friday evening for you to wow them with your performance!
