The Mitrovica Rock School project will be launched with a Summer School in August 2008. The Summer School will bring young musicians from Mitrovica, Kosovo, to Skopje, Macedonia, for a week of intensive lessons, band coaching and performing.
The week is designed to begin the training process of future teachers of the Mitrovica Rock School, while offering future students of the school a first encounter with structured rock music education. Five trainers from the Fontys Rock Academy will be responsible for the didactic content of the week.
Eight accomplished rock musicians from Mitrovica with the ambition to become teachers will work as their assistants and receive teacher training. Twenty young musicians from North and South Mitrovica with the ambition to become rock musicians will participate as students in the Summer School.
