Welcome to 2013 music lessons

Welcome 2013 students.

2012 saw us diversify away from being guitar centric and greatly increase our number of singing and drum students. Unfortunately the guitars forgotten cousin, bass guitar, is still struggling to attract the numbers it so fairly deserves. There is a great opportunity for kids and adults alike to learn an awesome instrument which will offer plenty of opportunities to play in bands.

The student concert in November of 2012 was fantastic but a lot of hard work for teachers to organize and also very hard on students trying to achieve a good performance with minimal rehearsal time. The differences in performance level were generally very evident, with the students who take part in the weekly band program being much better prepared, more comfortable on stage, and also having greater communication amongst one another. For this reason the teachers feel that the best way forward is to try and encourage students to enrol in the band program.

Rock Band
Group classes are a great way to meet other students who are passionate about rock music. Parents may either enrol their child in a new group or an established group.
