Rock lesson inspires students
ROCK’N’ROLL was the lesson of the day at Trinity Catholic College in Lismore yesterday as the annual Rock the Schools program hit town.
Enthusiastic students were treated to a lunchtime concert by Sydney rock band, Feeding Edgar, while selected senior students participated in three workshops throughout the day covering most aspects of the music industry.
Project director, Frances Corkhill, said the Rock the Schools program was Australia’s biggest free education and entertainment tour and was expected to reach more than 70,000 students, providing a “unique insight into the music and entertainment industry’s many careers”.
“We are really excited about rocking into our sixth year of inspiring the next generation of Australian music industry professionals,” she said.
“Through the generous support of Logitech, Norton, the Australian Institute of Music, the Australian Government’s National Drugs Campaign and Ubisoft’s Just Dance 2, this year we are able to offer this fantastic program free to 90 schools.”
