Summer Rock School 2012
Following the success of last years summer Rock School, we are pleased be to offer the summer rock school again this year. Once again we are working in partnership with Storehouse Studio's and the Centre for Contemporary Music to bring you the best tuition and advice for young musicians and singers.
Join us in our new project to give children and young people a voice over the airwaves by setting up a community radio station for and run by children and young people.
We are now recruiting young people to be part to be the driving force behind the new venture. Anyone under the age of 20 (25 if you have a disability or special education need) can get involved and be part of the organising committee. Group meetings will be held via Skype minimising travel and opening this up to all regardless of your location. We will also be looking for budding radio presenters and those that are more interested in the technical aspects of radio and sound.
This will be a unique community radio station that will be led by and for children and young people. The new station will aim to have a programme of topics that are relevant to each age group and have guests speakers from statutory and community groups that will answer questions and give advice. The station will not broadcast chart music but instead will link with our VH Live project to bring the best original music from local bands, musicians and singers. We will also be supporting all other performing arts through radio plays, comedians and any talent that can be broadcast for radio.
This is a real opoortunity to have a voice and contribute to the local community and learn new skills.
If you are interested in getting involved in any aspect of community radio from DJ to technical support you will receive full training.
