Of the back our largest ever Rock Academy we’re looking forward to Rock Academy XV this April.
In conjunction with Rock Academy, we will run DJ Academy with Sunset Child (Jorg Pats) and the Art of Rock Photography with Oli Sansom.
So if you’re a musician, a photographer or want to be a DJ, there’s something this upcoming school holidays for you.
For Rock Academy XV we’ll be running two identical programs over the two weeks of holidays, now you can pick the weeks that best suits you and your schedule, so connect with your friends and work out which week rocks best for you.
The weeks are:
- Mon-Thu, April 8-11 with performance show on Fri April 12.
- Sun-Wed, April 14-17 with performance show on Thu April 18.
There will be limited spots each week, so make sure you get in early before they disappear.
In the second week (14-18) we’ll have some guest rock musicians joining Rock Academy from William Colenso College in Napier, New Zealand – which will be a blast. Remember Rock Academy XII when Mt Alberts Grammar joined in – it’ll be nothing like that, although that was awesome, here’s the proof
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 Vanderberg and more.
Book now and get ready to get loud.
