The Rock/Metal Summer School runs over five days and consists of four mornings of dedicated tuition on your instrument, followed by a live performance workshop every afternoon to hone your performance skills on stage, guided by your tutors and a different special guest every day.
Last year we had tech/speed/progressive metal outfit, SikTh to work with students on achieving their sound. Each band member attended as a workshop tutor over the course of the week, with the whole band in attendance for live performances at the finish. Tutors and band members are Mikee Goodman for Vocals, James Leach for Bass, Graham Pinney for Guitar and Dan Foord for Drums, who were with the class for the entire week!
The last day will involve forming bands, and rehearsing your favourite track of the week, in preparation for an afternoon performance for your friends and family.
If you like your amp turned up to 11, then our Summer School is for you! Throughout the week, you’ll learn tracks by metal, punk and hard rock artists like Metallica, Rage Against the Machine, Skindred, Killswitch Engage and Architects, and play what you have learnt in our daily live performance workshops.
The week is topped off with an awesome live gig in front of an audience of friends, family and teaching staff.
