Professional, gigging musicians are holding weekly sessions for people aged 18 to learn guitar, bass, drums and vocals.

Andy Collins, who runs the successful Rock Project for children, has started the Rock Project Encore.

He said: “We’ve noticed more and more adults – including parents of children who already attend The Rock project – are keen to have classes of their own.

“So I decided to launch an Encore school for those over the age of 18 who want to learn to play or sing in a band. This will hopefully attract the former Rock Project members who have left the school after turning 18 while also inspiring even more wannabe musicians to explore their music talents.”
