About Rock School UK
Rock School UK was founded in Leeds during 2007. Since the first course in February 2008, over 2000 young musicians have participated in our holiday music courses at the Rock and Roll Circus Music Studios, Leeds. Courses take place during every half term and Easter holidays; and there are also 6 consecutive weeks of Rock School UK courses over the summer holidays. Rock School UK is a 5 day musical experience; running from Monday to Friday, with a finale gig the following weekend at the one of the countries best music venues; The Wardrobe, Leeds. A fantastic reward for any budding rock star!
