Plans for second rock school

THE Rock Project which launches in Portishead next week has announced plans to open a second music school in the area.

Andy Collins whose rock school opens at Portishead Youth Centre on October 3 is now searching for a suitable venue to host sessions in Clevedon from January.

The Rock Project offers youngsters aged between seven and 18 weekly tuition in guitar, drums and bass, in a fun and relaxed environment.

The two-hour, weekly sessions combine professional tuition with lots of other music-related activities ranging from jamming and singing to music quizzes to help teach theory.

The budding musicians are encouraged to form bands and stage a rock concert at the end of the year.
