Rock School Volunteering

“Rock School” is a week’s musical program run at Factory St. Studios, 9 Factory St, Bradford BD4 9NW. Running from Monday 23rd – Friday 27th October 10am – 4pm young people aged 13 – 18 from across the district get first hand mentoring from music professionals, they form bands, practice, record their songs in the recording studio and perform a gig at the end of the week. They leave with a CD with their band photoshoot on the front and the experience of playing a live gig in front of their friends and family.

We are looking for team players who are interested in music/youth work that can either play an instrument, sing or have skills in the technical side of musical operations. There will be break-out sessions where support from volunteers will be of value for the young people to help them develop their skills and volunteers can gain experience by coaching/mentoring young people. There will also be support needed for set up and derigging of activities, tidying up and assisting young people with filling in forms.

On successful completion of the week you will receive a letter of recommendation.
