RAISING the roof at Oliver Bird Hall in Solihull as well as cash for charity, were pupils from Clive’s Easylearn Rock and Pop Music Schools .
More than 30 pupils took to the stage in front of family and friends and raised over £880 for the Midlands branch of Heart Research UK.
The two hour show saw young people perform rock classics on a variety of instruments including guitar, bass, drums and keyboards.
School managers Sharon Hughes and Gemma Lawler said: “It was a fantastic evening, with so many young people getting the chance to test out the skills that they’ve been learning in their weekly lessons. In 2009, we raised over £1520 for Heart Research UK through our Charity Rock Shows, which is a fantastic achievement for all our students and tutors. We are proud of everyone who took part in the show, and can’t wait to do it all again at our next show in May 2010!”
Clive Brooks from the school added: “We want to make music easy and fun, and empower people to be able to play and perform. The Charity Rock Show was a real celebration of local talent, and also raised money for a really worthwhile charity at the same time”.
Clive’s Easylearn Rock and Pop Music School meets every Saturday morning at Mill Lodge School and Tuesday evening at Dickens Heath School with lessons for everyone aged seven and over.
A free one-hour taster session is available at both music schools . Call 0121 603 8872 or visit www.clivesmusic.com
