Dutch trainers to work in Mitrovica for one month

Today, Dutch trainers Joosje Jochems and Eric Wels will arrive in Mitrovica to work at the Rock School for a whole month.

Joosje is a senior-year student at the Fontys Rock Academy, where she's majoring in vocals and has her own band, Jane Dare. Most of you have already met Joosje, who joined us in Skopje for the 2009 Summer School and came again in September to perform at the Rock School's Official Opening. Watch Joosje working with Rock School singer Gjylisha during last year's Summer School:

Eric is a bass player and sound engineer, and works across the street from the Rock Academy at Factorium, a school for popular music, dance and theater. Eric met with the Rock School team when they visited Factorium during the training week organized together with the Fontys Rock Academy in March 2010. Here's a video of Eric participating in a different international music project, aimed at setting up a recording studio and music school in Fortaleza, Brazil:

Eric and Joosje will stay in Mitrovica until July 4, and look forward to a month of intensive training and of course a lot of opportunities to perform!
