Following on from our first post, here’s another 5 questions you might want answering…
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PERFORMING WITH OTHER MUSICIANS?
Playing with other musicians will improve listening, communicating, teamwork, social skills and confidence in your children.
It will also improve their improvisation skills and their problem solving skills. Sometimes a performance may not work out the way it was expected, and we work with your children to show them how to deal with these situations.
WHAT SKILL LEVEL DOES MY CHILD NEED TO BE?
We take all skill levels. As explained before, everything the students learn is catered to their ability.
So, whether you child has played for a few years or hasn’t touched an instrument before, they will be well looked after.
MY CHILD DOESN’T LIKE ROCK MUSIC. WILL THEY STILL ENJOY THE ROCK PROJECT?
We understand that everyone has different music tastes.
We also understand that to become the best musician you can be, you need to be open to as many different styles as possible.
While we are called The Rock Project, we do teach pop music as well as rock music.
So far, amongst many others, we have done songs by One Direction, Katy Perry, Adele and Ed Sheeran as well as songs by Metallica, Black Sabbath, Nirvana and Green Day.
DOES MY CHILD NEED THEIR OWN INSTRUMENT?
Initially, no they do not need their own instrument as we can provide one for them.
If your child decides that they really do want to pursue their instrument, it may be worthwhile to buy them their own. This will allow them to practise and play at home.
We always supply a drum kit at the sessions, as it’s just not practical for a student to bring their own!
WHAT IF MY CHILD DECIDES THEY WANT TO LEARN A DIFFERENT INSTRUMENT?
As long as there is space on the instrument that they would like to swap to, then it is fine.
If there is no space, your child will get put on the waiting list (whilst holding their current booked space) and can swap as soon as a space opens up.
The Rock Project students get first refusal so we will always check with them before filling the space with a new student.
We do, however, encourage our students to stick to one instrument as much as possible, so they can learn to master one instrument instead of learning the basics of many.
