Rok Skool is a music school in West Sussex, providing students of all ages with a vibrant, positive experience of tuition and participation in the musical genres they love. Founded in  2006 by Hereward Kaye.

Our purpose-built premises, with 5 rehearsal rooms, full performance stage, recording studio and specialised team of tutors (link to tutors page), make Rok Skool a center of musical creativity and innovation for the whole of East and West Sussex.


We have built Rok Skool on the core values of our founder Hereward Kaye. It's important to us we work, live and rock by our values. Rok Skool is...

  • Fun

    Music is fun and should be a joyful experience.  Many of our students have been turned off by the rigidity of a grades system approach to learning.  Our unique tutor style focuses on the student and what they want to ensure that every Rok Skool lesson is an incredible experience.

  • Inclusive

    Rok Skool is inclusive.  We cater for all children and adults, irrespective of age or ability.  Many of our students are neurodiverse and this is something we celebrate.

  • People Focussed

    Rok Skool is people focused.  We focus on you rather than the needs of exam boards and what you want to achieve and enjoy.  We will get you to your targets!

  • Creative

    Rok Skool is the center of musical creativity for West and East Sussex

    We have an impressive list of graduates – many of whom have gone on to work full time in the industry. Check out our Alumni.

  • Community

    Not only is Rok Skool a community where new friendships are formed we also passionately believe in the power of music to build, enable and transform communities. Come and join our movement!


  • For years, we have prepared students so that they could go on to gain entry into degree-course academies. One of them – BIMM – have been the recipients of many of our students; to the degree where we were being referred to as ‘Baby Bimm’. Two years ago they offered us a more formal association. We are now proud Partners of Bimm, who have university-level academies in Brighton, Bristol, Birmingham, Berlin and Dublin.

  • From September ’19 Rok Skool is proudly affiliated with Macaris – the oldest guitar Shop in the West End of London. They now have a ‘mini-shop’ in the Rok Skool waiting room, with classic guitars on offer at special discounted prices to Rok Skool students (the only other location besides the West End shop!). You might not know Macari’s was the home of one of the first Fuzz pedals around, built specially for Pete Townshend.

  • Founded in 2016, In A Box Records is a proudly independent production company, record label, music publisher & blog. They work to provide upcoming artists with everything they need to create, produce, release and make money from their music.
