What equipment do I need to sign up for this course?
Do I need any experience in music to be able to join this course?
You need to have at least 12 months of experience on your instrument to be able to join this course (if you have less please email: [email protected] to find out what other courses we have on offer).
Who will be in my band?
Our bands are made up of singers, bass players, guitarists, drummers and sometimes piano players. Your band members will all be of a similar age and level of ability to you. It is also possible for current band members or friends to join this course.
What song will we play on our video performance?
Your teacher will have a list of songs that band members can look at, and then can agree to choose a track from.
How will I record my video performance?
You will be sent a backing track to play along with. Once you are ready you can simply record your video performance on any device using headphones to hear the backing track. We don’t need to hear the backing track in you performance video, we just need to hear your instrument/voice.
Once your video performance is recorded you can just email it across to: [email protected] and we will do the rest.
You will then be emailed the full finished band performance video!
Why do we need to record our video performances separately?
Because of latency issues with video call platforms, it’s better for all band members to record their videos separately. This is similar to what a lot of bands have been doing recently with lockdown performance videos. Click HERE to see an example of one video that was put together by RockAcad piano/ synth teacher Edu Bisa Bisogno.

My daughters progress has rocketed ahead and now she’s flying! I have no hesitation in recommending RockAcad to anybody wanting t have a great experience learning to play music”
“RockAcad’s online-only teaching model is a perfect fit for Trinity and we are confident in the success of the collaboration.
RockAcad’s approach to teaching through the use of professional musicians who are still out there touring and performing complements Trinity’s Rock & Pop syllabus which focuses on the development of real skills, through real songs, resulting in real progress”
“I had online music lessons with RockAcad, learnt lots, everything was simplified and made easy to follow.
Would totally recommend!”
