RockSchool Success!!

By 22nd March 2019 No Comments

We love an opportunity to shout about how amazing our young people are so here goes……

Thanks to continued funding from Creative Scotland we have been working, over the last year, on a new addition to our music activities available at CY called RockSchool. This is a graded music qualification that focuses on contemporary music and allows people to improve their music skills and knowledge and gain accreditation for their achievements.

A group of young people attended weekly sessions with our drum tutor, Siggy, and guitar tutor, Conal, and worked really hard to improve their playing skills and understanding of music theory in preparation for sitting the exam, as well as having some fun along the way!

We were delighted when 4 young people overcame their nerves and performed amazingly well at their exams to achieve certificates. Jamie- Grade 3 Guitar, Orla- Grade 5 Guitar , Shane- Grade 1 Drums with Merit, Joplin – Grade 2 Drums with Merit.

We are super proud of everyone involved, a huge congratulations and well done to them all. A special shout out to Conal & Siggy for all their hard work and support.

RockSchool is continuing this year with a new addition of vocals to the programme. There are still some spaces left for singers and guitarist so if you are interested give us a call 0131 556 9389 or drop us an email
