Frequently Asked Questions
Does my son/ daughter need to bring their own musical instrument?
We'd recommend guitarists and bassists bring a guitar if they have one, as well as a guitar strap, plectrums and a spare set of strings. We have guitars and bass guitars should they need to borrow one. Drummers should bring sticks. We have drum kits, pianos, keyboards and microphones so please don't bring any of those!
Aside from musical instruments, what should my son/ daughter bring to the Rock Schools?
A pen and paper or notepad would be very useful. We highly recommend bringing ear plugs — drum kits and amplified instruments are VERY loud... Especially when they're all playing at the same time! They'll need to bring lunch or have money to buy lunch. There’s a fridge at the studio for storing food if they bring it with them and there are a number of shops on Norwich Road where they can buy food if they have permission to go to the shops.
Are your tutors DBS checked?
All tutors are DBS checked. Your child's safety is our number one priority.
Are there plans to run Rock Schools in other locations?
If there is demand and suitable facilites, we'd love too! Please complete this form to register your interest. For now though, we're Ipswich only.
My son/ daughter is younger than 10 years old, can they still attend the Rock Schools?
If they are comfortable around older children and have some musical experience then the answer is quite possibly "yes". This is decided on a case by case basis so please get in touch prior to booking.
Are their any discounts available for siblings?
Yes! Each sibling is eligible for a £35 discount. For two siblings enter the code TWO at checkout, for three siblings enter THREE.
Do you offer any other discounts?
We do! If you'd like to refer someone to the Rock Schools, you and the friend can both get £25 off (as long as they haven't attended a Rock School before). Contact us for more information. From time to time we run other promotions, the best way to hear about those is to sign up for our newsletter.
Do you do one-to-one instrument lessons?
We (Kick! Music Schools) only run the Rock Schools, so no. However, Ross teaches one-to-one drum lessons and we know a number of other private music tutors we can put you in touch with. Drop us an email and we'll see what we can do to help!
