Newbury Rock School gives guitarists, bass players, keyboard players, drummers and singers the chance to play in a band with people their own age, writing and learning songs with a live performance at the end of the week. The emphasis is on showing how much fun music can be, with astonishing results by the end of the week. We don't have any age or ability restrictions, as we feel everyone should have the chance to play in a band, although we do keep students with similar ages together. We have world class and famous musicians helping the bands get to the highest standard possible, whilst having a great time. The rock school is held in a top recording studio, which is fully air-conditioned with five sound proofed rooms. A minimum of 2 professionals will always be available for each band at all times to ensure everyone gets maximum help, as well as tutors for individuals if they feel they need it. Some of the professionals who come to teach include Steve 'Smiley' Barnard (Robbie Williams, Joe Strummer, Squeeze), Jodie Hawkes (Chesney Hawkes, Pete Townsend), Ryan Burnett (The Crave),Tom Swann (The Crave), C.J Evans (The Crave),Tim Love,(Chad Smith (Red Hot Chilli Peppers) Lee Thompson (Madness) Chesney Hawkes, Pete Friesen (Alice Cooper, The Almighty) Dan Morriss (Sion), Chris Persiva (Tin Soldiers), Dan Leigh (New Device) Plus others! Our teachers have been featured in Guitarist Magazine, Total Guitar Magazine, Kerrang!, and many more! They have also performed at venues such as the O2 Arena, NEC Arena and Hammersmith Apollo, as well as Download Festival and Sonisphere Festival! We believe the above measures make our rock school a cut above the rest. Newbury Rock School has been featured on TV around the world, and has attracted praise from some of the worlds biggest bands, including Metallica, Slash, Dream Theater and Linkin Park! Our students 'The Mini Band' have become a worldwide internet sensation!
