Adult project ready to rock

AN ADULT rock school will open in Portishead in the New Year.

The Rock Project, which currently provides music tuition to under 18s through weekly classes in Portishead, Clevedon and Nailsea, has become so popular that it is extending its sessions to adults.

Andy Collins, who runs the North Somerset venture, said: “Ever since we opened The Rock Project we have had lots of adults asking when they can join.

“Therefore, I am pleased to bring The Rock Project Encore for over 18s to the area with my team of tutors.”

The new sessions will run at Portishead Youth Centre every Wednesday from 7.45-9.15pm, teaching guitar, bass guitar, drums and vocals.

Each session provides 45 minutes of professional tuition in small groups and then everyone joins together to perform the song they have learnt as a band.

Andy added: “All instruments can be provided at no extra cost, so whether you currently play or are a total beginner, The Rock Project Encore will be ideal for anyone who wants to feel like a rock star!
