Rock Project for young musicians comes to Spalding
An exciting new opportunity is bringing new music schools to children in Lincolnshire, writes VICTORIA NIXON.
Talented musician Ben Thorogood (23) has returned to his Lincolnshire roots and is bringing the popular Rock Project franchise with him.
And one of the areas he is bringing his weekly two-hour sessions to is Spalding. They are open to children from age seven to 18 and will be held at Ayscoughfee Hall School.
Students can learn popular songs by artists such as Bruno Mars and ACDC, using instruments such as the guitar, drums, keyboard or bass.
At the end of each class students will come together to play live, working towards performing on stage in front of friends and family in a summer concert.
Ben studied sound engineering at the University of Surrey in Guildford and was inspired by the Rock Project where he worked as a tutor for three years. Now, he is branching out and setting up his own franchise in Lincolnshire.
He said: “It’s unorthodox teaching that will get you engaged and no matter where you are from or your level of expertise.
“Learning music gives kids social skills and disciplines and something positive to focus their energy into.”
Having discovered his love of working with young people, the drum and bass player is looking forward to running his own business and continuing to inspire young people and helping eager music students of all levels of experience to develop their skills.
