School Holiday Programme Rocks Wellington
Are you looking for a fun school holiday programme based in Wellington? Our holiday programme is ideal for young beginner musicians and more advanced pupils. Ideal for singers, guitarists, keyboardists and ukulele players who love to play and sing modern and old school pop and rock songs. Fun and education are blended to ensure our pupils are inspired and encouraged to express themselves through their music. Songwriting is one of the most popular activities and we also take our pupils busking each day, which is great for developing confidence. Our mentors are very experienced and they strive to inspire our next generation of musicians and help them achieve their musical goals.
Our programme is ideal for singers, guitarists, bassists, keyboardists and ukulele players (sorry no drums) and is suitable for ages up to 16.
We have portable keyboards and portable microphone/PA. Guitarists need to bring acoustic guitars. We have been known to book out so be in early.
The busking trips are a highlight for a lot of our pupils and performing as a group is a safe and easy way to break down public performance barriers. We see a lot of pupils develop throughout the holiday programme as they grow more and more comfortable and confident. By the end of the last day, we always see a definite advancement in musical ability and confidence.
The new table tennis table has been a huge hit at the holiday programme. Lots of fun with causual and more competitive games going down during the week!
We just want to say a big thank you for the 4 days Luke and Sam spent at the holiday programme with you – 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 now!!

Every morning we start with beat time, where we teach the pupils basic beats and paradiddle exercises. These exercises are great for building rhythm and enthusiasm if our pupils find themselves on a drum kit in the future.
Contact us by email or phone for details and information about our fantastic holiday programme!

Songwriting is one of our favourite activities and is a great way to stimulate the creative part of a young mind. Starting with basic chords or lyrics, we move each pupil through the process of songwriting.
Fun 'cool' songs
The pupils get to learn lots of cool rock and pop songs, both modern and old school. Playing and singing over the course of the holiday programme can be like having six months or a year of lessons in three or four days for some pupils.
We love to encourage everyone to sing, although it is not compulsory. We find once pupils start they enjoy the exercises we teach to the group. Breathing exercises, lip trills, sirens are all fun and have the group in fits of laughter while helping them find their voice.
