Ivo's ready for Skopje!

Hi Everybody,

My name is Ivo. I study bass guitar at the Rock Academy, Holland. I play several styles of music but mostly I play rock music. I'll be giving bass workshops during the Summer School in Skopje. We will work on different techniques, music styles and just how to make a bass groove.

I am looking forward to Skopje. Meeting new people and seeing back familiar ones.

See you guys soon!

Skopje, here we come!

Gearing up for the 2010 Summer School

Dear students, friends and fans of the Mitrovica Rock School,

Time for some good news: we have the green light for the 2010 Skopje Summer School!

In the last week of August, 24 Rock School students and their ten teachers will travel to Skopje, Macedonia, for a week of training, rehearsing and performing. In Skopje, we will be joined by five trainers from the Fontys Rock Academy: Ivo, Harm, Nienke, Jonathan and Ruud, and their coordinator, Gerdien.

During the Summer School, students will have a week to choose their songs and band names and work together towards a major outdoor concert. Throughout the week, Rock School and Rock Academy trainers will give workshops and master classes, so get ready for some pretty intense music-making!

The Skopje Summer School is the high point of the year. In Skopje, the Mitrovica Rock School's two branches join forces to give Skopje a taste of great music from the city of rock'n'roll.

Stay tuned for details and introductions from trainers and participants!

The Skopje Summer School is financially supported by the Social Transformation Program (Matra) of the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Finnish, French and Norwegian Embassies in Pristina.
