Facilities at Harwich Rock School Centre.

November 2018 Show at the Westcliff Theatre Clacton.


Sessions will recommence on 12 April!!! Running on Monday and Wednesdays and we will be open to new members.

The facility is COVID safe. Anyone that does not feel well should not attend the session. Only one band at a time are in the building with a specific start time, temperatures are checked on entry, hand sanitiser is provided on entry and the band moves directly into a rehearsal room. These include partition screens between performers, and performers wear masks. We request that all musicians bring their own instruments with plectrum and drumsticks. Mics have new filters and will be changed after every band.  The room is equipped with air purification equipment and micro filters and all surfaces are cleaned after each band.  After finishing the session, the band moves directly out of the building. All bands will have accurate arrival times so that we get no mixing of bands when they go in and out. It all works out fine and is easier than it sounds!

Monday 12 April to Friday 28 May – 7 weeks
Monday 7 June to Friday 21 July – 7 weeks
Monday 6 September to Friday 22 October – 7 weeks
Monday 1 November to Friday 17 December – 7 weeks

Harwich Centre-We have two studios, fully equipped with drums, amps and PA. We run sessions between 5-9 pm on Mondays and Wednesdays and plan to open on Thursdays between 5-9 pm when demand increases.  We provide all equipment and a one hour supervised session for £4.00 per week for participants. This includes a weekly class and pop-in sessions when we are open.

DUE TO COVID 19 we are not currently running Jaywick Cente Martello Tower.  –From April 12 we will offer sessions in Harwich for the Jaywick bands and  we hope to re-establish the Jaywick centre in September 2021. The Rock School used to run regular sessions on Tuesdays and we will offer the same session times at Harwich. We provide all equipment and a one hour supervised session.


 The Rock School was set up by local people, who obtained a building, raised funds and built the rehearsal rooms and studios. The charity has run for twelve years and former students now teach and run the sessions. Students won the MFY National Partnership Awards for Rock Pop and Urban in 2013 and 2014,  and bands played at the Music for Youth Proms in the Royal Albert Hall in 2016, 2014, and 2012. In 2018 two acts were invited to visit Biberach Germany to play in an “English Week” Concert.
