What is Rock School?
Now in it’s 3rd year, La Motte Streets Rock School has be become one of the islands most sought after youth music experiences.
Two courses are held in the summer holidays, one at Christmas and one at Easter. Course dates are published in the preceding term. Rock School combines a great musical experience alongside a social and supportive environment for young musicians.
Participants must be aged between 11-16yrs (inclusive) and must have a basic musical experience in one of the five disciplines; bass guitar, guitar, vocals, keyboards and drums – we allocate five places to each instrument.
All courses commence with instrument demonstrations and a tutors performance followed by four days where participants receive music tuition in the morning with all the participants in their chosen discipline, form bands in the afternoon with one participant from each discipline and then enjoy performance opportunities in the late afternoon. The final day will be working towards a public performance to invited guests held at La Motte Street. The course days last 10.00am to 4.30pm and there is a morning, lunch and afternoon break with a fully equipped Diner available for hot snacks, confectionary and drinks. Alternatively participants may also wish to bring a packed lunch. The final day is a full 10amn to 9.30pm mission ending in a fantastic musical performance to invited guests.

“Young people are bound to have a fantastic time” says Senior Youth Worker, Ivor Richards. “the chance of getting music lessons in your own instrument, plus the opportunity to be tutored on working together in a band is pretty unique and there is always a real buzz about the final gig too”.
Rock School courses are tutored by young Jersey musicians, all of whom are currently studying in English universities. We place importance on lessons that are fun and also delivered by working musicians. Our tutors are chosen because the have the musical knowledge and what you need to make it in the industry. “If your son/daughter is interested in music whether as a soloist or as a member of a band, this is a chance to meet up with like-minded musicians, get into bands and get up on stage” The popularity of Rock School means we are unable to promise all participants will get their first choice of instrument. We therefore ask all applicants to make a 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice. We make every effort to ensure young people get their first choice, but in the eventuality they are allocated their 2nd or 3rd choice, we know they will have an equally amazing time learning something new and challenging yet with superb tuition and a great deal of support. Participants are not chosen on a first-come, first-served basis – rather that we need an even spread in the disciplines and across experience. Successful applicants will be notified following the closing date. The full fee is refunded to unsuccessful applicants. The full fee is requested at the time of application as a way of establishing a full commitment to the course and its other members - regardless of which of your three chosen disciplines you are allocated.
