Bedford Rock School provides weekly sessions in rock and pop performance, bringing together students from many local schools. Our staff offer guidance on the practical skills needed to rehearse and perform with a band.
Students will need to be aged 12 – 18 and have previous experience playing and learning (approximately Grade 3 standard and above). In addition to the weekly sessions (10 per term), there will be regular jam nights and concert opportunities including our bi-annual event at Bedford Esquires called Bedford Breakthrough.
There are currently two groups that meet on a Thursday evening at Castle Newnham School from 6-7:30pm and 7:30-9pm. Please sign up and we will contact you about which group might be best to join depending on what instrument you play.
If you’re not old enough or experienced enough to attend we also run a rock band at Saturday Morning Music Centre.
The cost for Bedford Rock School is £15 per month to be paid by direct debit. We offer a 50% remission for children who are registered as being in receipt of Pupil Premium and 100% remission for Looked after Children.
