It's our first week back at RMC Academy and it's been a great one. Catching up with our clients and setting out plans for 2024 has allowed us time to reflect on the previous year and its highlights.
The last event we held was a small Christmas showcase involving one of our Band Experience groups, members of our Kids Group Guitar class and a solo performance by guitar student, Jamie – all held in Riverside Music College’s Studio 1 Live Room.
‘Room 1’ is one of the groups from our Band Experience (named after the room they rehearse in.) They met during our first iteration of the Band Experience and have grown as a unit so exponentially that this performance has been their best yet. Ripping through covers of Muse, Deftones and Wham was a great way to start the night.
Jamie is one of our private members, he’s been coming for lessons with Sam for a number of years. Jamie spent 2023 working through some of his favourite songs and loves all things guitar. When the idea of a live show was first discussed Jamie’s name was at the top of the list. He and Sam worked together choosing the right songs and getting them show ready, landing on Blink-182 “What’s My Age Again” and The Teenage Bottle Rockets “Skate or Die”.
Finally Sam and Zac closed out the night. Both boys are part of our Kids Group Guitar Class, neighbours, class mates and best friends. This has been their first year of playing guitar and got on stage to play “Mountain At My Gates” and “Jingle Bells”
We loved seeing everyone’s work pay off with such a successful night. We’ve got a lot planned for 2024 and you can bet that there will be more amazing performances, keep an eye out!
