The story so far...
AllStars Rockschool has been running in SE London since 2008, starting out in Sidcup & Chislehurst for six years, before relocating to larger premises in Welling in 2014.
Our ethos is reflected in our name - AllStars. Whatever their levels of skill, we aim to show that the students are ALL STARS! Our priority is to help ALL students to shine through music in their own way, by removing the complexities and formality of traditional music lessons which often stifle creativity and undermine confidence.
Right from day one, all students at rockschool classes are playing as part of the band alongside their tutors, not just learning musically, but building social skills, confidence in their own abilities and self esteem - all of which are so critical during developmental years as well as into the longer term as solid life skills.
We don't ask for any long-term commitment from our customers but we're in it for the long-term.
We aim to build relationships with our families that can support their changing needs and other commitments over the years - all that "family life" stuff that can otherwise cause young learners to drop out. We're so proud of our students who have now been with us for twelve years - from primary school to university - especially those who now teach with us as professional musicians!
In recognition of how advantageous it can be for a family to play music together, we offer a 10% family discount for additional siblings, and parents of our students a 25% discount on fees.
Tutors at AllStars are a dedicated team of professional young musicians from the local music scene who are passionate about passing their skills on to the next generation. Their mix of musical interests, individual skills, differing qualifications and professional experience are all helpful and inspiring for students, especially those who may be considering career options in music-related fields.
Tutors are carefully selected with a strong emphasis on the personal qualities that make a good tutor and role model for young people - young enough to relate and inspire, friendly, patient, and with a particularly healthy sense of humour!
"The teachers are COOL!"
