North Somerset & Bristol Franchisee
Andy opened the North Somerset franchise of The Rock Project in October 2011 after leaving the RAF as an aircraft engineer, since then the schools have gone from strength to strength and Andy now also assists head office with the opening of new schools around the UK and abroad. In 2020 he also started running the Bristol franchise, with plans to open more schools around Bristol. Andy lives in Portishead and is married with two young children. Andy says: “I love what we do at The Rock Project, we have taught over a thousand students now over the years, and to watch their confidence and ability grow to be able to perform live on stage within their first year is a great achievement for both them and my team. If you are wondering if our sessions are for you, just come along for a free taster and meet the team and see for yourself!"
