About Us

Livewire Rock Academy is a rock and pop music school with branches in Epping, Bishop’s Stortford, Great Dunmow and Saffron Walden. We teach children and adults how to play electric guitar, bass and drums in a fun, safe and friendly environment on a 2:1 basis with our trained tutors. We spend 45 minutes teaching our students to play the instrument of their choice using our absolutely unique, easy to follow course materials.

Then for the last 15 minutes of the 1 hour session we put their new skills into practice when they perform in our weekly live jam session, playing classic and contemporary rock and pop songs together with the tutors.

Every six months we put on a live concert where the students get to perform their new skills on stage in front of a live audience. Our concerts raise money for local charities and we are regularly invited to perform at other events such as local festivals, fetes and special events.

We recently performed at Saffron Screen, opening for the Led Zeppelin movie “Celebration Day” (yes, we’ve supported Led Zeppelin! ;o)  and played on the main stage at the Stortford Music Festival several times.

We offer free, no obligation taster sessions at all of our schools. To book, call 07941 670575 or visit www.livewirerockacademy.co.uk

The business was established by Simon Baker and Andy Wilson in 2009.
