Bumblefoot opens UK rock school for kids

Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal has launched a rock school for kids aged six to 18 in Oxfordshire.

The Bumblefoot Rock Project is a charity based at New Beaconsfield Hall in Shipton-Under-Wychwood and the Guns N’ Roses and Art Of Anarchy guitarist hopes to teach youngsters how to play a variety of instruments.

The project promises to give participants experience of writing and recording music, performing live, making music videos and helping them to master their chosen instrument.

In a statement, Bumblefoot says: “Our mission is to provide a safe, fun environment for youngsters to develop musical abilities. We encourage children to write, record and perform live their own music.”

The school offers band sessions and one-to-one tutoring with a variety of packages on offer.

Thal’s status in Guns N’ Roses remains unclear after he refused to confirm whether he has left Axl Rose’s group or not.
