Open day for budding musicians at Lincoln's new Ultimate Rock School
Budding musicians who think they could be the next Slash or Axl Rose are invited to an open day at Lincoln's new Ultimate Rock School.
The school has been running in Collingham for the past two years, but on Saturday, June 23, there will be an open day at its new studios in Roman Way, South Hykeham.
Founded and run by Nicci Snook and David Truelove, the Ultimate Rock School aims to provide young musicians with the tools and expertise they need to thrive in the music industry.
Open to pupils aged between 8 and 18, the school offers lessons in drums, guitar and singing, as well as sound recording, video production and other forms of multi-media. The school, which covers genres of music from indie and rock to metal and RnB, will also run summer camps giving potential chart-topping stars the chance to experience life as a professional musician.

Miss Snook told the Echo that the school's tutors offer support for pupils from the very first time they pluck a guitar string to the first time they walk on stage for a gig and beyond.
She said: "We aim to give the kids the full music industry experience and give them the motivation for learning and loving to play their instruments.
"What we really love about it is getting to know the kids who are involved and seeing the confidence that learning an instrument can give them."
James Jolly, 15, from Witham St Hughs, who has been at the school for two years and is part of the band Ripkord, said: "When I first started I didn't know much about it but I started getting good at the guitar and I started learning more skills.
"The encouragement I've received has been great and has helped me get out gigging more."
The open day runs at the studios, at Unit 17 in Roman Way opposite Pennells Garden Centre, from 1pm until 4pm.
