About the Rock Studios
Music provision at Chichester College has an outstanding reputation. In partnership with BIMM (Brighton Institute of Modern Music) the Music department has launched this new opportunity for young musicians to work with professional artists by developing their performance skills and working in bands. Students will be taught by highly qualified professional teachers from BIMM. All staff are experts in their instrumental specialism and are highly skilled musicians in their own right. Students will have the experience of working with professional musicians to develop their skills and self confidence as performers in a dynamic creative environment.
VOCALS | GUITAR | BASS | DRUMS | BAND PERFORMANCE
We are offering instrumental specialist workshops in guitar, bass, drums and vocals in addition to directing band rehearsals and performances.
1-1 tuition for those students participating in the Rock Studios programme will be available on request and at an additional hourly rate. Students will work on a set repertoire to develop individual playing skills before being placed in bands to then work towards and end of term public performance. Sessions run in 6 week blocks with a performance at the end of each 6 weeks.
The Rock Studios aim to provide high quality music training to students who have a keen interest in music and an aspiration to become a performing musician. This is a unique opportunity for young , talented and promising musicians to be individually guided by some of the most experienced industry professionals.
Students will be encouraged to undertake Rock school examinations at an appropriate level under the guidance of the teaching staff and in agreement with the individual student.
