“It’s an absolute no-brainer! It’s fun, it’s inclusive, it’s all the things that are great about education rolled in to one. We’ve had them in twice now, and have booked them to come again!”
Rupert Kaye - Head Teacher, Christchurch Primary, Frome
“These guys are doing something totally unique and there’s no doubt in my mind that they’re set to be the next big thing. Get them in while you still can! I can honestly say they’ve inspired every child in my school.”
Nicky McCormack - Deputy Head, Hayesdown Primary, Frome
“Their rocking assembly captivated the whole school and Rocktopus filled each child with renewed energy and enthusiasm for music and songwriting. If they approach you for a free songwriting workshop I would strongly recommend taking them up on it.
Matt Stone - Head Teacher, St Martns Garden Primary, Bath
“As a school we’re really into our music, and for the kids to see a live band playing a song which they’ve helped create is an experience they’ll never forget. Do it! Get them in! it’s a big thumbs up from me!”
"DOING WHAT'S BEST FOR THE KIDS!"
What do you get if you cross two primary teaching, singer songwriting, music lovers? - ROCKTOPUS!
An interactive, live music experience for children which will entertain, educate and inspire.
Rocktopus formed in 2015 when Andy Hawkings and Tom Veck discovered their shared passion for rock music, performance, teaching and songwriting with children.
Tom and Andy knew that children deserved more than just sickly-sweet bland nursery rhymes - children deserved to be able to ROCK OUT!
They now perform with their two dancers 'The Oceanettes', in large venues across the country, and visit schools where they inspire the next generation to write songs and get in to music.
