Summer rock school offered for Nanaimo youth

Students of I Wanna Rock’s summer rock school will once again be hard at work this summer preparing to put on the biggest concert of their young rock star lives.

Students learn everything they need to know about performing with a band including techniques, tips, equipment, rehearsing, song choice, overcoming stage fright and more in a two-week intense summer rock school course, then play a concert at the Cavallotti Hall.

The summer rock school starts Aug. 20 and runs for two weeks Monday to Thursday, with the concert taking place Aug. 30. It’s open to students of all ages but they must have some experience playing an instrument.Tuition is $250 and registration ends Aug 10.
