KZR Team (front L to R): Nick McNulty, Andy Fleet & Andre
Canniere with the 19 strong class of Christmas 2011
Fleet, founder of the KZR Music Rock Sessions in 2008, is passionate
about inspiring and encouraging young musicians to continue playing
music as they grow rather than giving up due to the wrong kind of
tuition or direction. He draws from his own experience - "I grew
tired of classical piano as a teenager and would have likely given
up had I not found a great rock and jazz teacher who showed me that
learning music doesn't have to just be about working through endless
grade pieces and scales in isolation but more about understanding
chords, harmony, improvising, listening, writing and playing in
bands - making new friends!".
There are rock schools around that cater for beginners and teach
large unwieldy groups weraing headphones in frantic one hour busts
in unsuitable halls but we're very different at KZR Music. We
are a professional organisation providing a top quality band experience
using the best venues, equipment and instructors and what sets us
apart from other schools is that our students are all serious about
their music and must have been been playing their instrument for
at least two years. We don't teach how to play an instrument but
how to play in a band ... and of course, our bands rehearse in seperate
rehearsal rooms for the duration of the course. The social aspect
of music is very important to us which is why we run the sessions
over two full consecutive days during the holidays and allow for
regular 'downtime' to allow the different bands to rest and socialise.
Many bands have formed on the back of our sessions and that makes
us very proud.
We are fully insured and all our instructors are Enhanced Disclosure
and Barring Service (DBS) cleared. Find out more about our
