Course Details


Bury Rock School Summer course is for young musicians looking to gain experience playing in a band and have fun with other like minded people.

Our course tutors will be on hand to guide you through the process of forming a band,  developing the craft of learning songs and key performance skills.   It will improve your confidence as a live performer, promote the need to work together as part of a team – all this while having fun playing the instrument you enjoy!

So if you’re a guitarist, singer, bassist or drummer, our course is a fantastic way to spend your Summer holiday.

The course consists of five half days from the 24th – 28th July.  Each session is in the morning and runs from 9am – 12pm.

On the last day, you’ll get to give a performance of the songs you have learnt in the week for all your friends and family to enjoy! In addition, the performance will be recorded and will be available as a free download on our site for you to keep as a momento.  On completion of the course you will receive your very own Bury Rock School ‘Rock Legend’ certificate!  The course is open to all musicians who are not absolute beginners on their instrument and are aged between 11-16.  Each band member must be comfortable in learning songs on their chosen instrument.

We have teamed up with our friends at Red Wall Studios in Bury to provide the backdrop to our course.   Here we have the best facilities on hand to meet the demands of our young stars!
