The School of Pop is a brand new music school for the 21st century which opened in April 2013. The school comprises of popular music and instrument tuition in:
From 7 years of age to adults during term time.
Students also have the rudiments and basic theory of music in a no pressure fun way included in their class.
Aspiring musicians get the chance to not only learn on their instruments but also get the opportunity to perform and record as a band.
School of Pop uses contemporary music and technology as a way of engaging children and young adults every Saturday in term time teaching:
At the School every Saturday students have the opportunity to experience group learning (a maximum of 5 students per class), with a music lesson on their instrument of choice, performance techniques, recording and production skills all in a band setting.
Each hour class ends with a jam session where each band gets to rock out!
As professional musicians the tutors philosophy of building self esteem and self confidence through music performance felt like an obvious way to engage with the smart phone using children of the 21st century who expects so much more out of a music lesson.We have seen that small group learning and performance education builds confidence and transforms an ordinary instrument lesson into a social event which brings a new and fresh energy to music learning.For example imagine not only how great it would be to perform in your band/pop group to your friends and family after a terms intensive learning but then to post your bands video on YouTube and be able to share that with your piers, friends and family. It is this kind of experience that not only motivates the children to learn but actually encourages them to practice.
The School of Pop is based at Wallops Wood Studios, a professional working recording studio situated in Droxford, Hampshire.
