Harefield Gazette - - NEWS - By Will Ack­er­mann will.ack­er­mann@trin­i­tymir­

A FOR­MER char­tered ac­coun­tant has changed ca­reer paths to launch a rock and pop school in Ick­en­ham.

Prit­pal Chitroda had also pre­vi­ously worked in large multi­na­tional or­gan­i­sa­tions in­clud­ing Warner Broth­ers, Vir­gin Ho­tels and Sta­ples, but wanted to spend more time with her fam­ily.

She will launch The Rock Project fran­chise at Vyn­ers School Academy Trust, in War­ren Road, in June, run­ning two classes ev­ery Thurs­day – one for ju­niors, which will run from 4.15pm to 6.15pm, and one for se­niors, run­ning from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.

Stu­dents aged be­tween seven and 18 will be taught to sing and play var­i­ous mu­si­cal in­stru­ments, rang­ing from elec­tric gui­tars to bass gui­tars and drums, all of which will be sup­plied.

Mrs Chitroda said: “My am­bi­tion and over­all aim is to open schools in other ar­eas of Greater Lon­don in the next few months.

“The schools are a great way of bring­ing young peo­ple who en­joy mu­sic to­gether within the com­mu­nity.”

The Rock Project was founded in 2005 and now has more than 30 fran­chises through­out the UK.
