Hi Rock’n’Roll High – just a BIG congratulations on todays Eliot Street Bar Gig – it was our first time there and thoroughly enjoyed the amazing entertainment of all the students and teachers alike.

“I have my 3 year old son in the Thurs KINDER ROCK class and just have to say what an amazing program you are running for the kids. I like that it is aimed at an appropriate level for the age group. The focus on learning one song in many ways with different instruments, singing and movement is wonderful. Elise and Naomi are lovely and I can’t praise them enough for how they run the class. We will definitely be enrolling for next term. Looking forward to watching my son bloom under your musical care x” -Jennifer Herrmann 28/5/13
“The highlight of 2012 for our family was discovering Rock n Roll High and becoming part of the magic that begins at 16 Zoe Street and filters out to our homes and our lives in the form of music! To all of you…Thank you so very much! ” Wendy, Sol, Maya x
“I’m really enjoying learning with Ferne. She’s such an intelligent, talented and well travelled woman, I find her very interesting to talk to as well. Vanessa and Tegan are also gorgeous, very encouraging and lots of fun in the choir”. Catherine Curnow.
“Rock n Roll High is an extremely unique and unrivaled music resource in the greater South West region . The performance opportunities provided through the school give students real life playing experience and a taste of the possibilities in the music industry. Most importantly the school is a social network for people with like mined interests and aspirations. Whether that be to play music professionally, to find a band to jam with, to play purely for self enjoyment, or as introduction for children of young age, it has suitable tuition for all levels. The passion for music, often lacking in many institutions, is what sets Rock n Roll High apart and makes it such a positive musical environment for everyone involved.” Konrad Paszkudski. ( after Konrad left RRH for WAAPA he was discovered by James Morrison, and between 2008/09 Konrad played piano in the James Morrison band as ell as concerts/festivals under his own name with the Konrad Paszkudski Trio and quartet.
Louise, Ian and the team at Rock n Roll High were more like a family than music teachers. I guess this is probably due to the fact that I had lessons with just about everyone in the school, but also because they probably knew me as well as my family did. During my time as a freelance musician I have realized how much Louise, in particular, had encouraged and nurtured my talents. My first live performances singing, playing guitar and drum kit to an audience were at the Rock n Roll High end of term gigs, and although I may have forgotten all the words at my first gig, with Louise’s support was excited for my next performance. It is because of Louise and everyone at Rock n Roll High that I am the confident and musically versatile performer I am today. I have studied with some of Australia’s and the worlds best teachers but to have had mentors like Louise and Ian offer me such wonderful opportunities at such a young age were invaluable experiences that would be instrumental in the development of my musical career. I thank Louise and Ian and the family at Rock n Roll high from the bottom of my heart. – Asha Henfry WAAPA Graduate and professional musician.
Peter Chorlton is an excellent guitar teacher. He has such a broad knowledge of music and a lot of experience as a working musician. I thoroughly enjoyed my three years of guitar lessons with him and he inspired me to keep playing music.

Since my daughter started her guitar lessons in Term 3, 2012 the team at Rock and Roll High have been brilliant. She is having a great time with her tutor Vanessa. Anytime I have any questions or problems like running late for lessons or re-scheduling Louise is straight on the ball sorting it out for me. If they say they are going to do something they will. Awesome customer service and lovely friendly bunch:) “Thank you! You guys are awesome! Great customer service! :))”. Yvette Chapman
