Until further notice, all lessons are being safely held live online using Zoom, the face-to-face video meeting app. The new ROCK@home lessons are 30 minutes, on a 1:1 basis with your usual AllStars Rockschool team of tutors.
To help students further whilst we can't meet in person, all enrolled students now have log-in access to a new Student Support Library and Song Lesson Library of tuition videos, "play along" videos, and downloadable resources for all instruments.

After six and a half years of rockin' in Sidcup and Chislehurst, we have upped (drum)sticks, packed up the trusty bandwagon and moved to a super-shiny, huge new venue in Welling!

Today was a BIG day for three of our students who were being auditioned and interviewed for North West Kent College, to study music performance/music tech.
Between them, they've been coming to Rockschool for... ooh... 19 1/2 years??? And the good news...? They've ALL been offered places!!! INCREDIBLE!
HUGE congrats to Oli, Elliott and George D! Great guitarists and SO well deserved! All your hard work has paid off lads!
Big enough now to handle an embarrassing pic..? Oh yeah, go on then... ;-)
We couldn't possibly have rockschool classes on Halloween night without getting a little crazy! It was DARK, it was SPOOKY, and it was such a laugh! In fact, it was so much fun we did it AGAIN in daylight for Saturday classes!

Lark In The Park festival's newspaper reports on one of our performances, July 2010.
Tiny text reads: "Students from Clive's Rock School entertained the Park Life audience with a string of rock hits from yesteryear, including Smoke On The Water and Sunshine Of Your Love. An accomplished group, the students were all well received by a discerning audience".
Happy memories from when we started in 2008!
The Rockschool was invited into BBC Radio Kent's studios for a chat and a song, to tell listeners all about what we were up to in Sidcup & Chislehurst.
