About the Event
BOOK TICKETS Free event with performance open to all with no booking needed, but numbers for the taster session are limited, so please reserve a place
The Skool Of Rock is a brand new Manchester based music academy for children. Our highly experienced tutors offer fun music workshops that provide a rounded approach to live music performance.
Our workshops are tailored to provide children aged 7-14 with confidence and assurance as they explore the world of music. We offer the opportunity for our budding young rock stars to learn new skills; practising ukulele/ electric guitar, bass, keyboards, drums/ percussion and vocals.
Everyone's welcome to come along to our Prestwich Arts Festival event where you can listen to a short performance, before there's the chance for 7-14 year olds to having a go themselves!
No need for any prior musical knowledge or lessons. We deliver music workshops that will suit beginners to intermediate, with emphasis on a tailored pace for each child in a supportive environment.
