School Holiday Programmes Wellington

An amazing holiday programme perfect for young singers and musicians. Lots of fun activities and workshops along with learning cool modern pop and rock songs. The kids learn to write their own songs also helping them gain personal confidence. The pupils are usually beaming at the end of the three days and we get lots of kids coming back. A holiday programme unique to Wellington ideal for beginner pupils and more advanced pupils with a good spread of ages. Please contact us today for more information or to book.

9am till 3pm Monday to Wednesday on both weeks of the school holidays up to 16 years of age.

This programme is ideal for singers, guitarists, bass, keyboard and ukulele. (Sorry no drums) and is suitable for ages up to 16. Based in Kilbirnie Wellington. Beginner to advanced.

Activities include:

Group jam sessions acoustic – The participants get to learn cool rock and pop songs both modern and old school. Playing and singing over the programme is like having six months or a year of lessons in three days. The improvements can be amazing. It’s a very satisfying part of running the holiday programme, seeing the young musicians and singers move ahead leaps and bounds.

The Rock Academy’s got talent – Pupils learn how to audition, introduce themselves, hold eye contact and perform a piece to the group. There is no pressure and it’s not compulsory. We try and help the shy kids come out of their skin and the more confident kids learn tricks to help them on stage and in life.

Busking trips – Great for building confidence in young musicians. We busk outside Unichem pharmacy where the group can make over $200 per day. It’s honest work and the deserve everything cent they receive as the good vibes they spread down Bay Road are priceless.

Song writing workshops – This is a great way for the participants to experience and advance their song writing and open their creative channels. If they have never written before then we help to open the creative pathways and for the more advanced song writers we help them to structure and polish what they already have.

Singing lessons/exercises – Singing exercise’s, warm up’s and scales every morning. A great way for everyone to learn a little about singing. We encourage them to sing even if it is just to sing back up vocals in a future band.

Technique up skill sessions – Learning new riffs, licks, chords, tricks and techniques. These little workshops are great for showing tricks that really help speed up the learning curve of the young musicians.

Industry work shops – Learning what it means to be a successful musician however ambitious or unambitious that may be. We take the pupil through different senarios whether it be learning to jam with mate, record, gig or even if it just means playing for themselves. There is no right or wrong way to play music as long as they are enjoying themselves and music is adding something valuable to their life.

‘Just want to say a big thanks for the 3 days Luke and Sam spent at the holiday programme – they had an awesome time – Luke has since gone busking on his own (with his Dad in tow!) and the boys are just so into their music!!’
