North Somerset & Bristol Franchisee Andy Collins
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. 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!"
Tom Andrews - Session manager
Tom has been with The Rock Project since it opened in North Somerset, he joined the team as bass tutor and then took over running the sessions from Andy in September 2017. Tom is a fantastic musician and sound engineer, and has a wealth of knowledge to pass onto our students.
