Our Tutors

Without them we're nothing, I know it's a cliché, but it's true.

The tutors are quite simply the backbone of Dads Rock Academy, and it's down to their dedication and support week in and week out that we have had such a success so far.

We are based in The Music Box, which is Edinburgh College's music department. Most of our tutors are students of Edinburgh College, or returning volunteers after finishing their studies.

What do we offer our tutors?

  • The chance to help the next generation of rock stars!
  • Direct experience of teaching adults, kids and young people how to play an instrument.
  • We aim to help Edinburgh College students gain experience and credit through Dads Rock Academy as part of their studies. (i.e community music modules, teaching modules, project modules).
  • We are part of a unique programme going from one to one/group lessons, to band mentoring and the preparation process of producing a live performance.
  • Finally, we offer them the chance to be part of something special!

Our tutors all have Disclosure/PVGs and are studying music, either at HND, Degree level or have just finished studying. The average tutor has been involved with music for approximately 5-10 years.

The passion and energy of our tutors is clear to see, they share the same goal.

We do occasionally have guest tutors from outside Edinburgh College come along, and again they will be expected to have Disclosure/PVG.If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a Dads Rock Academy tutor, please get in touch with us.
