Xfm's Rock School is back

Xfm Manchester is adding the fourth R to the curriculum with the return of the Rock School, giving a school band the chance to win a rock-star experience.

The wining band will get £1,000 to spend on music equipment for their school at Dawsons Music, A day's recording at the Xfm Manchester studios, A rock'n'roll makeover courtesy of Bench and A professional photoshoot with rock photographer Shirlaine Forrest.

Xfm says [i]some of the biggest and best bands in the world met in the school playground including U2, Ash, Supergrass and The Jam, proving that starting early can really pay off.[/i]

Xfm Manchester presenter, Clint Boon, who made his mark on the Manchester indie rock scene with his band The Inspiral Carpets, says “This is something that I have been really excited about after the success of last year. I can’t wait to see what secret prodigies are hidden out there in schools all over the North West.”

Bands have until midnight on Wednesday 26 November to email in their mp3.
