Normal service details...

Weekly music tuition for young people and families.

Dads Rock Academy is the only weekly music tuition in Edinburgh for the whole family. For young people, dads, mums, grandparents and other family members. Our students are young people (aged 7 upwards) and their families, learning music together.

Starting each year in September and running through to June. Students learn in small groups, new students can join in September through to January.

We teach Bass, Drums, Guitar and Vocals.

Students work towards an end of year show in June.

Lessons last for 2 hours.

The cost for each student is £40 per month.

Lessons take place on Tuesday nights, 6:30pm-8:30pm in The Music Box, Sighthill Campus, Edinburgh College.

Over the summer we also offer a range of activities to maintain learning, and provide holiday cover. We have a friendly, inclusive atmosphere, our tutors are experienced in working with young people with additional support needs.

What we believe

Music allows for self expression, it builds self esteem and self belief. Research shows that young people who learn to play an instrument do better in school.

We want young people and families to enjoy music together, to have strong relationships, and to value music as an industry as much as a way to express yourself. We want all of our students to get to know new people, to challenge themselves and to learn new skills.

Dads Rock Academy has been running since 2014.
