GUITAR / DRUMS
All-Day Performance Classes & Band Rehearsals
Everyone began the morning in their class rehearsal groups – Monsters of Rock and Extreme Rock. During the late-morning session the Monsters of Rock stars reassembled their bands in the practice rooms and rehearsed with Richard (Bass) and Tim (Guitar) for their medley showcase.
After lunch the bands took turns to rehearse on stage and have a sound check. During the late afternoon session everyone readied themselves for a complete run through of their sets in order of appearance for the showcase performance later.
Throughout the day all students were prepped with hints and tips about performance skills and on-stage etiquette. This included:
- Stage Left / Stage Right
- Getting on and off the stage
- Microphone technique
- Mic-ing up amps for live sound
- Stage management
- On-stage safety
- Live sound and lighting
- Classic rock moves and poses! (video coming soon!)
On behalf of the tutors, myself (Richard Perkins), Tim Baker and Tom Gardiner, I would like to thank all the students for their hard-work – all in the name of rock! I’d also like to extend the thank you to the parents for supporting the South West Rock Camp. See you in 2011!
Videos will be added soon.
