Rehearsing like Crazy!

5 new mixed bands from the Rock School have been keeping busy during the Remix Band Camp in Skopje this week! 

The bands are all highly motivated to write their own songs and have been rehearsing intensively for the final event, to be held at the Havana Summer Club on August 29th. 

Five former students are now supporting the band camp as ‘junior teachers.'  It's incredible to think that these core staff members started as the Rock School's first teenage students in 2008! 

Yesterday, the group was given the afternoon off for socializing after all of their hard work, which will surely strengthen the new friendships that have begun to form.

Stay tuned for more updates!
