Questions

What weeks do the schools run / not run?

We are not term-based and so lessons continue throughout the year. The weeks we are not in session are the first two weeks in August and the last two of the year in December.

How much are lessons?

For the Rock Out Student Programme, lessons are currently £21 per week.

Lessons are purchased in advance on a monthly basis, and are paid for via standing order. However, if you start part-way through a month, then the school will request an initial part-payment via cash/cheque.

Who can I speak to at the school?

All lessons are supervised by a dedicated manager, who will act as your point of contact. They are always there, running every session and can answer and question or concerns you may have.

Where do your tutors come from?

Our tutors are all local musicians who excel on their chosen instrument and have great communication skills. We guide them in delivering our course material but they already possessed most of the qualities required to be an excellent tutor when we found them. They are all in bands, gigging or recording and most are either currently gaining advanced qualifications in music or have already graduated.

They are amongst the best musical role models your children could have. If you don’t believe us, click here.  All of our tutors are Advance CRB checked.

What if we miss a week?

Refunds are not available for missed lessons. However a “Planned Absence Scheme” is in operation in all schools, which provides opportunities to make up for missed lessons due to family holidays etc. Making up a lesson usually involves attending two sessions one week at your normal school instead of one. Alternatively you may be able to make up a session at one of our other schools in your area. If your normal school is quite full and scheduling a two hour session is difficult, your school leader may organise additional sessions on a different day to allow people to catch up.

For more details please speak to the manager of your school.

How much notice is required if I want to leave?

One month’s notice is required from the forthcoming standing order payment if you wish to withdraw your child from a school. You have full control over your standing order payments and are responsible for stopping them when you leave the school. The school itself does not have the power to do this.
