Steven Wilson, patron of the school, describes the spirit of Belmont Rock School & Conservatory (BRSC) thus:
"While it is possible to reach a high level of technical skill by learning an instrument in the privacy of your own room, music should be a shared experience, a way for you to connect in a spiritual way, but also to communicate with your listeners."
"Nothing can match the thrill of making music together and performing in front of an audience."
Why learn Music?
There are many reasons but in the main, music enhances creativity, sociability, and physical coordination.
BRSC brings a dual dimension to the learning of music, that of learning music individually and by playing in a band. It is thus that learning music can certainly be fun and extremely motivating. After all, music is about bands, where the intensity of music is shared among musicians, as well as with the audience.
BRSC also shows the young generation of musicians the rich history of rock as well as promote its unique values. This is why the school receives continuous support from profesional artist musicians and bands - the professional members of the school.
