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... ;-)


Spooky Halloween!

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!

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. 

 

Ten year old guitar student Holly made the trip down to Tunbridge Wells to play a stunning solo on her new bright pink acoustic guitar!  Yes, LEAD guitar LIVE on the radio at age TEN, after taking lessons for only a year!  Presenters Paul James and Paul Harris couldn't believe it!

 

Click below to check out all the chat and Holly's amazing performance of Eric Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight", joined by tutor Jamie on vocals and tutor Rob on rhythm guitar!
