Rock Bus stops off in Spalding
Budding young rock stars were given a chance to hone their skills last week.
Peripatetic teacher Amber Sinclair parked up her Rock School Bus at The Sessions House to give Spalding youngsters the opportunity to play.
Amber has been busy planning and fundraising for more than a year to convert the double decker bus.
The aim is to provide young people with an outlet for exploring music while also helping with mental health issues.
Amber’s plan is to park up to give youngsters a chance at singing, drumming and playing the guitar, bass and keyboards on the fully equipped bus.
Amber ran two different sessions on the bus last week.
Youngsters who currently do not play an
instrument were able to enjoy a taster session and were playing songs by the end.
She also ran a rock band experience when youngsters were able to play We Will Rock You, I’m Still Standing and Monster.
Amber said: “All of the people we worked with last week had never played an instrument before and it was exciting to teach them.
“By the end of the session they were playing the songs, which attracted interested from people on the street.”
Amber has also also thanked Fowlers Coaches for their help in and support on the Rock School Bus project.
She said: “This is a fully functioning double decker bus and I’m leaning to drive it.”
The Rock School Bus was at The Rose and Crown in Holbeach Hurn this week.
