JYHS Rock Band rehearsals allow pupils to form rock bands, cooperate, practice material together and take part in concerts. The club opens pathways to concert performances within school, in the wider West Lothian community and beyond.

Rock bands are formed at the start of the school year in September and rehearsals take place fortnightly throughout the year with opportunities to perform at both the JYHS Christmas and Summer concerts.


 

Who Can Attend

Rock band rehearsals are open to any pupils willing to work hard and dedicate themselves to attending rehearsals and concerts. We will endeavour to form bands and try to find a suitable group for you to join.
