About Rok Skool

Our Sussex Rock School, catering to all ages, opened in September 2006, on a world of musical creation, exploration and performance. We were pioneers of a growing movement and now have over 200 students, 15 bands and rooms resounding to the sound of singing, guitar, bass, drum and keyboard lessons, recording sessions and band rehearsals. Rok Skool is a vibrant, vibey place to be.  And these days it’s about kids and adults– we’ve got a female choir, a new adult start-up band,  a 10 piece Jools Holland style big band (all beginners 2 years ago; now out and gigging) and adults in vocal coaching getting better by the week and performing live.

Rok Skool was first formed as a kids musical paradise with all the paraphernalia typical of a rock band – guitars, keys, amps, mics and recording gear. By the time you hit Year 4 in school you’re ready for music!

Over the course of the school year, many songs are developed, as we move towards public performance in towns, villages and schools and our two annual showcases:  The COOL YOOL SHOW and SKOOL’S OUT FOR SUMMER.

Here is an environment where musical dreams become reality for beginner musicians upwards, whatever age, with tuition in GUITAR, DRUMS, BASS and KEYS; SINGING and SONGWRITING. We offer 1 to 1 tuition, or learn in groups of 2, 3 or 4, working through our own in-house ROK SKOOL BOOKS. And we have bands and vocal groups of all ages and levels waiting to snap you up once you feel ready for the experience!

OUR AIMS:

  • To bring the joy of performing modern music to people of all ages, live, unplugged or electric.
  • To never let music be boring. To replace boredom with creativity and improve self-confidence.
  • To bring an under-pinning knowledge to the creative process.
  • To give people the know-how to express themselves musically within a genre they already love.
  • To develop musical ability, through rock and pop, in those who would not otherwise consider music as an option.
  • To engender an environment where each member is aware of their responsibility to the rest of the group.
  • To provide a platform for budding talent, and nurture the musicians and stars of tomorrow.
