ROCK ACADEMY

About the exhibitor:
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 at the famous Bakehouse Studios in Richmond,.
Composite bands prepare cover songs and co-write original songs to be performed in front of family and friends at the final performance at the Central Club Hotel, Richmond.
Our mentors are the cream of the crop of Australia’s musicians led by our very own Phil Ceberano.
Drop by our stand to chat to our parents, participants and mentors about Rock Academy and its impact on young musicians from all over Victoria.
