5320414 Rock Upp!

Tutor: Anthony Pike

Location: Uppingham School

 A week of songwriting, recording and gigging for aspiring rock and pop musicians.

Who Can Attend?
This course is aimed at young people aged 11 to 18 who are interested in any form of modern music, either as instrumentalists, singer-songwriters, vocal artists or members of a rock or pop band. Run by a group of qualified professional musicians and tutors, students will receive group and some personal tuition. They will form a band with other students and will learn how to write their own music as well as having the opportunity to mix and record one of the tracks they have written.

Using the state-of-the art fully professional recording studios in the Paul David Music School, each group will record, mix and produce their own track. They will also record a music video for the track which will be released as the band’s single. The track will be made available to download online, the music video will be published on YouTube, and a CD copy with printed artwork will be produced. The band will get the chance to perform their songs in front of a live audience of friends and family, as the week concludes with a gig.
See the videos produced by 2016 students with their bands Crossfire and 2:41   

Leisure Time
It is a busy and full-on week, so we also include a varied programme of leisure activities such as swimming or other sports, a night out bowling and film evenings etc.
