Play In a Band with Andy Stocks Guitar School

We offer exciting programmes to get you playing in a band. In association with Richard Quinn School of Drums we bring together guitarists, bass players, singers and drummers to form bands that rehearse, record and play gigs.

We offer two different programmes both of which offer different experiences. You do not have to take part in both of the programmes to get a place. Please bear in mind that both programmes are extremely popular and require a level of dedication. By signing up to the course you agree to attend all the events.

  • Play in a band
  • Rehearse
  • Record
  • Gig
  • Feature in a music video


Rock Crew is our monthly programme where you are allocated to a band made up of similar aged players. Each band has a singer, drummer and bass player. You are more than welcome to offer your voice to the singers role if you so wish.

We meet once a month on a Saturday between October and March and rehearse the songs that we have decided to study. Over the 6 months you will build a set list which you will perform at a gig in March/April time in front of your friends and family.

You will need to bring your guitar, lead and amp to the sessions but everything else is provided. The sessions last for 90 minutes and you will have an allocated band mentor who will guide you every step of the way.

There is still time to book for October 2016 with the first session beginning on the 15th October 2016 at 3.30pm. Please contact us to book a place.

Summer Camp

Summer Camp lasts for 1 week during August and runs Monday to Friday with a gig at the end of the week. During this week you will rehearse, record and shoot a music video before performing in front of your family and friends.

You will be allocated a band mentor who will group you with other musicians of similar age. From here your journey begins from being a student guitarist into a recording and gigging musician.

Our students love Summer Camp and so do their parents. Summer Camp is the highlight of our year.

Dates will be announced on our events page at the top. Keep checking back for exciting news about next years Summer Camp.
