The Rock Project
Join The Rock Project franchise as it expands across Ireland, and run your own Rock and Pop sessions for children aged 7 - 18. The franchise has already experienced success in the UK, Ireland and Spain and comes with a comprehensive franchise package with full support.
The Rock Project was started in 2005 by Stuart and Lowri Wynne who felt that the ‘old-school’ style of teaching music was just not hitting the right note with today’s children, and so they set about developing and refining a unique system aimed at the ambitions and needs of children between the ages of 7 – 18yrs.
Although in its 13th year, The Rock Project has enjoyed unparalleled growth over the last two years, with a growing network of over 80 schools running in UK and Ireland, and recently having been listed in the ‘Making Money’ magazines ‘Top Ten Children Franchises’.
If you want to join this growing music revolution, we’re keen to find people who like rock and pop music, enjoy working with kids, and who have a strong desire to develop their own business.
How It Works
We offer weekly 2hr sessions in Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums and Vocals, to Juniors (7-11) followed by Seniors (11-18). Students have a 1hr lesson in the instrument of their choice in a small group of no more than four or five for which we use selected tutors from a growing bank of experienced professionals.
The second hour consists of Games (Juniors), the Music Master Quiz, and a Plug & Play session during which students mix with those from other instrumental groups. This session places emphasis on group performance work and encourages social interaction and teamwork.
Music Master Quiz is not just about Rock and Pop; students learn about all genres of music as well as the theory and history of music whilst having fun.
The Plug & Play sessions give the students a chance to put into practice what they have learned in their instrumental lessons. Even though we encourage as many of them to take part as possible we would not insist anyone to do something they are not comfortable with.
The Rock Project Franchise
The Rock Project is run mostly during school term time but out of school hours, so could be run in the evenings or at weekends, enabling franchisees to fit around their existing commitments until the business has grown to a significant size.
Every franchisee will be granted the exclusive rights to run our unique schools under the brand name of The Rock Project and will benefit from the comprehensive training, and continuing guidance of our experienced support team.
The franchisee is provided with all of the equipment and know-how necessary to run the sessions and will co-ordinate the tutors, venues, students, etc for each of the schools in their own exclusive territory.
If the franchisees have a certain amount of musical knowledge, this will reduce the number of tutors required and will therefore improve the profitability of the business, although it is by no means essential.
There’s not been a better time to invest in The Rock Project franchise. The package which includes all of the systems, equipment and training, as detailed below, and a territory with a minimum population of 100,000 costs £14,999+VAT. (There are no ‘Hidden extras’)
The Franchise can be run as a ‘Hands on’ franchise, where the franchisee is fully involved in the sessions, or as a Management Franchise where teams of tutors run the sessions. The Rock Project system works equally as well for both options.
Other larger territory packages are available, details of which can be found in our full prospectus.
Before proceeding with the franchise we will provide you with all of the background financial details to ensure that you have all of the information necessary to make a clear, well-informed decision, however we strongly recommend that you seek independent advice before undertaking any franchise investment.
Return on Investment
Each school, running at around 80% capacity, will generate around £800 in weekly revenue, with a typical percentage gross profit of around 45%. A franchisee will comfortably run 4-6 schools in each territory.
