We conduct a variety of half day, full day and two-day workshops, on weekends and school holidays. Workshops range from music instruction to songwriting to the Vrock workshop where students create a band then record a CD from which they produce an animation or music film clip. We developed the system to fast track music learning for young beginner musicians. It has been used in over 50 NSW public and private schools including schools in Coogee, Randwick, Malabar, Kensington, Kingsford, Matraville,
and also at the Maroubra Music School.

We used our system to teach these school students.
All the musicians were beginners, but within one year of using the system, they were experienced enough to walk into Channel Nine studios and record live in one take on the Kerri-Anne Kennerley Show.
As well as becoming great musicians and accomplished performers, the students had already shot several music video clips and had been learning around professional digital equipment,
so kids as young as five found the multi million dollar TCN studios no problem at all !!
PROJECTS BY STUDENTS
Students storyboarded, edited, acted, danced, played and sang in these videos. These creative projects are not meant to be glossy, professional music videos, they are the work of imaginative and talented young people when you let them loose on instruments and hi-tech equipment in an environment of inspiration and fun.
