FORMER Iron Maiden guitarist Dennis Stratton has given his backing to a new rock school.
Livewire is now open for business in Saffron Walden, offering “music lessons with a big difference”.
The academy is open on Monday evenings at The Friends Meeting House in the High Street, teaching electric guitar, drums, bass and keyboards.
And Mr Stratton is a strong supporter. He said “This is a great opportunity for people to learn and play music with professional musicians.”
Every lesson finishes with a 15-minute jam session with all pupils joining in well known rock and pop songs.
