Inclusive Rock School
Our inclusive rock school is tailored for those with learning disabilities aged 11-16. Participants work with our experienced tutors to learn how to play instruments, make music with others, and develop their musical skills in a relaxed and fun environment. The aim is to work towards performing at music venues and theatres across York. We have had a fantastic track record of enabling your people with a learning disability to develop their musicianship all whilst having a ton of fun!
