Welcome to
Your Local Rock School

(A division of the Ipswich Guitar School)


Ages 7-11

  • Does your child show an interest in music and you want to give their passion some direction?
  • Do they want to play the guitar like their favourite artists and music heroes?
  • Do you want to make sure their musical journey is given the very best start?
  • Do you want your child to be in a supportive learning environment with other likeminded people?

Learning any instrument needs to be fun and for our lessons this is our top priority. Special effort is made for these lessons to feel friendly, safe, nurturing and above all else... rewarding and fun.

All lessons are goal oriented and we regularly work towards performances although participation is optional. 

Lessons are based around our own curriculum and criteria which allows us (unlike the standard exam route) to measure the students progress while playing the music and songs they know and love at their own pace, whether that be faster or slower than the deadlines and pressure of exams allow.

Your guitar teacher will be fully trained and highly experienced in playing and helping others just like you to play the music you love and reach your goals quickly.

When your child learns to play the guitar with us, they can expect to:

  • Learn to play the music your love by your favourite bands and artists
  • Learn the secrets to songwriting and make their own music
  • See skills improve rapidly
  • Stay motivated and excited to play and practice their instrument
  • Gain life skills through music such as time management, listening and responding sympathetically to others, self esteem, planning and organising, developing trust in one's self.
  • Learn exactly how to practice and get the most out of your practice time
  • Regular opportunities to perform

You are a truly inspirational teacher. George just has to ask to learn a tune and he has not only learnt one but two in a session. He is so motivated to practice that it is hard to keep him off his guitar. Not only are you an excellent guitar teacher but you have taught him skills for life i.e self belief,and coping strategies for times when is not feeling so confident.
I can not thank you enough for what you have done for George. Thank you for the time you have given to George, for your understanding and insight. Everyone I speak to says the same. You are an amazing person.
Best Wishes for your future .I’m sure you will continue to be an inspiration.
— Deborah Creed, Mother of George, 10.
