Livewire is a Rock School for all ages. We start teaching kids from 6 years upwards how to play guitar, bass, drums and keyboards.
"What do you look for in a music school – patience, understanding, enthusiasm, ability to teach a wide range of skills at all levels, friendly and fun – I found all these and more at LiveWire Rock Academy." - Jackie Fox
"I have 3 children who participate in Livewire. Livewire provides an excellent opportunity for children to have a creative outlet. They enjoy their lessons and look forward to the concerts which happen twice a year. They have a positive attitude towards developing their musical ability and treat it as fun and not a chore." - Justine Long
Theo was hooked from the moment he went along to the free trial. He's never been one to stick to one thing for any length of time, so to see him still enjoying himself over a year later is testament to just how good the school is. The teachers are fantastic and make each session fun. Thank you." - Dean Harris
"The 'Pop Music School' came to my son's school and gave a demonstration, and I have not seen my son so enthusiastic about joining an activity. He has now been coming for 2 and a half years and has learned so much. He loves taking part in the concerts and his confidence has definitely grown." - Julie Rees
This is a great opportunity for people to learn and play music with professional musicians
We teach electric guitar at livewire rock academy, not acoustic, although acoustic guitars are fine for practice and homework as tunings/chord structures are the same.
The bass is an integral component of any band and is often overlooked when deciding to learn an instrument, but as a key part of the rhythm section the bass guitar is an excellent instrument to study.
Drums are an exciting instrument to play and very popular at our schools. We teach on electronic drum kits (which can be turned down!) and use drum music to teach the students.
At LiveWire Rock Academy we teach Electric Keyboards as an integral instrument in a live band scenario and use many well known rock and pop songs that incorporate recognizable keyboard riffs.
