Ofsted Deep Dive Looming?
Stop Worrying About Your Music Curriculum
Thankfully, secondary schools already have specialist music teachers on staff.
This is great for offering students quality music teaching and learning.
But, where secondary heads of music run into trouble is being able to offer the range of instruments students want to learn.
And parents are juggling full time jobs with running their kids across town after school for expensive private music lessons.
What if we could offer you a fuss-free, budget-friendly way of solving these problems?
Let us explain how...
- …online music lessons will save you, your staff, and parents time and money.
- We know that: Every day, heads of music in secondary schools look at their budgets and wonder: How on earth am I going to make it work?
- They don’t have the money to hire multiple instrument specialists.
- But they know an Ofsted ‘deep dive’ into their department might fall short in a few areas.
What we can help you with
- Fully prepare students for GCSE, A Level and graded exams
- Support you with introducing music technology. We have dedicated music production teachers
- Provide online live lessons which are convenient for all, especially those who would struggle to attend in-person music lessons
- Support you with crash courses for your staff, in particular instrument lessons to broaden your music curriculum offering
- Provide links to the music industry. All our teachers currently work in the music industry and we provide our schools with free regular masterclasses and Q&A sessions with music industry figures

Our teachers are all background-checked and fully DBS-vetted
The prospect of the Ofsted dreaded ‘deep dive’ looms large.
Let us help you make sure your music offering no longer requires improvement.
We know music sometimes gets neglected – and that’s totally understandable. If a primary school doesn’t happen to have a musician on staff, it can seem an insurmountable task to get the curriculum in order.
But it doesn’t need to be.
We can help you make your curriculum outstanding.
RockAcad is a government-backed award-winning global online music academy. Our experienced DBS checked music teachers and leaders deliver bespoke live 1-2-1 or group music lessons.
We offer a range of instrument and music subject classes which are tailored to suit each schools personal goals and learning styles.
We also use and reinforce key vocabulary from the interrelated dimensions of music to support your curriculum objectives, ensuring a results-based, fun learning experience with a clear progression of skills. Giving you the tools needed to offer a well rounded music curriculum… And all online.
Our lessons have all the benefits of in-person teaching with none of the logistical issues.
And because our lessons are live, in real time, and not pre-recorded, students get instant assessment and feedback.
RockAcad was presented with the ‘Points of Light’ award in 2021 from the UK Prime Minister, for their “Exceptional service to online education
“Thank you for all that you are doing to bring the gift of music to key workers and their children. Among the many challenges we have faced in this battle against coronavirus, few compare to the enormity of so rapidly reinventing education online”
Meet our Founder and CEO David
To educate, support and empower students on their musical journey, regardless of ability or background.
We develop talent, build confidence and supply the knowledge needed for current and future musicians to reach their full potential.
So why online?
No more travelling for students, parents and teachers – saving you time and money.
Easy connectivity to music software & apps
Music is more tech-centric than ever. Online lessons lend themselves very well to tech integrations by our expert tutors.
Kids stay on task
It has been found that when communicating via webcam, students are more focused for longer.
Immediate feedback and practise
Our lessons are live, and not pre-recorded. So, feedback is instant. But, students can choose to record their lessons to help them practise later.
More control over your learning
You have more flexibility with the timing of your lessons, so you have fewer missed sessions.
Wider range of lessons
You might not have many local teachers to choose from. We have many tutors with a wide range of expertise.
What people say about us
“I first had the pleasure of working with the founder of RockAcad (David Green) while I was Head of Music at an inner city secondary school. David played an important role as part of the wider music team in transforming the department, ensuring excellent outcomes and co-curricular opportunities for our students.
Having been a music educator and department leader for the past 16 years I have worked with many hubs, music education charities and outreach partners.
Trust me when I say that what RockAcad offers is truly remarkable! I cannot thank David and his team enough for their help with resources and package deals that support our wider network.
If you are looking for a first class service in music education this is it!”
“Rockacad have outstanding teachers – they make learning an instrument fun and interesting.
They are kind, patient and their passion for music is infectious. My daughter’s progress has rocketed ahead and now she’s flying!”
“RockAcad have really friendly teachers. They were fab with my 5 year old who loved his online lessons and is keen to have more.
Huge thanks from Olivia and Caleb!”
“Yesterday’s keyboard club was a roaring success, students came to me today and were very happy! They will also be returning next week.
Thank you so much for all your hard work!!”
“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”
And we’re Trusted by…
In April 2021, we joined forces with Trinity College London. Through this collaboration, RockAcad became one of Trinity’s first digital exam centres.
- We’ll teach your students Trinity’s standard or Rock & Pop grades through our online lessons.
- The lessons are live, so just like with in-person teaching, we can give immediate feedback and targets for progression of skills.
- Once students are ready, we record their exam and submit the video through our secure system with Trinity. It will then be assessed by Trinity’s expert examiners.
- We offer specialised bespoke services for Key Stage 3, GCSE and A Level Music.
