Rock Academy Melbourne
Week 1: Tuesday – Saturday, April 6-10
Week 2: Monday – Friday, April 12-16
As always there are limited spots for the in-person sessions at Bakehouse Studios, so be quick, Bass players and Drummers expecially.
On the first day, we kick it off with a Songwriting workshop led by our amazing mentors, getting you started on your way to writing your original song. After the workshop you’ll join your bandmates in a rehearsal room to co-write your song.
Due to the restrictions we have on the number of people in a room at once we’ll have the bands selected and rooms allocated before we kick off on Monday morning.
On Day Two it’s straight into rehearsals of a selected cover song (you and your band choose the song) and then spend Days Three and Four fine tuning your original song and the cover song ready for performance
On the afternoon of Day Four you’ll perform original song and cover song in front of the cameras and will be recorded (audio and video) from the stage of the Scrap Museum. Times will be staggered for each band (using a shared backline)
On Day Five we’ll be performing a live gig in the city. Venues to be confirmed
The recorded performances from each week will be mixed and polished and then premiered as a ‘Big Show’ on YouTube and Facebook on Sunday April 25th.
Due to COVID we’re restricted on the number of band members and mentors we can have in a room at any given time, and you’ll need to wear a mask and use hand sanitiser constantly. We’ll have staggered starts, lunchtimes and finishing times each day to ensure everyone’s safety.
We cannot add to the numbers as we are restricted by the Government policies. To keep everyone as safe as possible we have strict policies in place and ask everyone to apply commonsense. But the good news we’ll be running for two weeks of the holidays in January (pending numbers of course).
