Got a band? Need mentoring?

“I’ve got a new band going…it’s great having that experience with School of Rock because I know what I’m doing, what works at practice…otherwise we would surely sit around and do nothing! Keep up the good work, SOR kicks ass!”
- M Robins (student)

    Hi there,

    Do you offer mentoring to a person on their own or do they have to be in a band? Also to, do you offer the same at the SOR in Wellington as you do in Auckland?

      Hi, yes we do! It involves a complimentary first assessment so that we are able to go through some criteria which will help us define the best mentor to work with you based on your needs, wants, and skills. Email: Classes@SchoolofRock.co.nz

      School of Rock has been Auckland based for a while now. As far as I know, after Thomas Goss finished he handed Wellington over to Hannah Simpson, and then Ricky Boyd was running Wellington as “The Band School” until the end of 2012. School of Rock no longer exists in Wellington.
