Location and Time
bRAVO! School of rock runs on a Saturday morning at
The Boys Brigade Hall, Combs Lane, Stowmarket, IP14 2DA.
The senior session (ages 12-18) 09:00 -11:00.
The junior session (ages 7-11) 10:00 -12:00.
The songwriting session (seniors age group only) 11:00 -13:00.
All sessions run during term times in accordance with the Suffolk Educational Calendar, running a total of 37 weeks.
The students will also perform in two concerts during the school year produced by bRAVO! School of Rock.
Each week the students will spend the first hour in a small group learning their chosen instrument. The students can choose between guitar, drums, bass and singing tuition. We accept a maximum of 6 students per class. This enables us to meet each students needs by focusing on their different learning styles. We advise that students stick to the same instrument for the duration of their attendance at bRAVO! to improve their skills in the chosen instrument. If a gifted student wishes to change to a different instrument for his/her tuition class, it can be discussed with the instrumental teacher and the principal to find the most beneficial option for the student.
During the second hour (Band Jam) the students will perform the songs they have learned during the first hour. The students will form bands and ensembles based on their mixed abilities and will perform rock and pop based tunes. The lesson will also include music games and quizzes tailored to each age group. This will improve their general knowledge on music theory and history of music by learning while having fun.
We also offer to the Senior age group a two-hour tuition class to students who want to learn songwriting. The songwriting class is open to those already attending bRAVO! School of Rock, as well as those that are only interested in the singing/song writing.
The song writing class will run from 11:00 until 13:00.
The first hour will consist of learning how to write a song - lyric writing, chord structure, form etc. The following hour will consist of performing the composition in an “open mic/jam” style. The students don’t have to play an instrument to join the songwriting class but we advise that they have a basic knowledge of musical chords, preferably in guitar. During this class students will sometimes be paired for collaborative learning.
Our tutors are experienced and fully qualified musicians that teach to very high standards. Each tutor and anyone involved in bRAVO! School of Rock holds a current enhanced CRB/DBS certificate. All teachers have studio and live experience on professional stages, offering superb tuition and guidance, creating a fun learning environment to build confidence and musical skills.
We accept students of all levels and abilities.
We can provide instruments for the students during the session free of charge but we advise you to have your own for personal and home practice. Drummers don’t need to bring their own instruments and singers don’t need to bring any audio speakers; drums, mics and PA system will be provided.
Main school sessions (2 hours) - Juniors and Seniors £15.00
Songwriting session (2 hour) - Seniors £15
For the seniors that want to join the songwriting session after their standard classes,
