There are limited spots each week, so make sure you get in early before they disappear.

Rock Academy is a school holiday program that helps develop the skills of teen musicians. Forming bands you are given guidance by some of Australia’s leading professional musicians – this is not a class based program, we spend as much time as possible rocking.

Composite bands prepare cover songs and co-write original songs to be performed in front of family and friends at the final performance.

Some of the amazing mentors we have had are the cream of the crop of Australia’s musicians and include Phil Ceberano, Ash Davies (drumming legend), Nikki Nicholls (Farnham, Kylie), Karina Utomo (High Tension), Kav Temperley (Eskimo Joe), Justin Burford (End of Fashion / Coco Blu), Finbar O’Hanlon (Jump Inc, Guitar God), Jimi Hocking (The Angels, Screaming Jets), Nick Barker,  Ecca Vandal, Glenn Reither (Icehouse), Kate Ceberano and Monique Brumby, Cam MacKenzie (Mark Seymour & The Undertow),  Ladyhood (Brihony Dawson) and Laura Davidson (AC/DShe, Bjorn Again), Paulie Stewart (Painters & Dockers), Fiona Lee Maynard (Have A Nice Day), Simon Hosford, Sam Vandenberg, Hanny J (Clowns), Jenny McKechnie (Cable Ties), Jen Sholakis (East Brunswick All Girls Choir) and more.
