Music Workshops

Rock Scholars regularly holds music workshops, masterclasses and clinics and can also facilitate corporate events and school incursions. With our talented team of mentors and tutors, and our extensive music industry contacts, we have a wealth of knowledge and experience we can call on to present and teach on a range of topics. Everything we do at Rock Scholars is a hands on, immersive experience with the focus on active participation and actually playing an instrument.

Whether it is a specialised class in guitar improvisation, a percussion masterclass, or workshops in recording and sound engineering there are often special events being held at Rock Scholars that are open to both existing students and the general public.

Rock Scholars is also available to facilitate school excursions and incursions and specialist sessions for community groups that can be tailored to your specific requirements.  Please enquire here if you are interested in talking to us about an idea for a workshop.

We run a full program of activities during every school holiday including drum clinics, songwriting workshops and jam sessions. Check out our School Holiday Workshops page for current scheduled events, or subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to learn about all upcoming events and activities.

Drum workshops

We have some very talented drummers on the teaching staff at Rock Scholars and they love to run drum workshops. These are typically restricted to no more than six participants with everybody present getting to play on a full drum kit. Aimed at both beginners and intermediate students, these are noisy, high-energy sessions where you’ll get to play a lot, meet other drummers, and hopefully learn some new tips and techniques as well.

Songwriting workshops

Rock Scholars plays an active role in the Perth independent music scene and as a result we are lucky enough to know a lot of Perth’s most talented and exciting musicians and performers. Whenever we can we like to get these people to come into Rock Scholars and share with us the fascinating art of the songwriter. At a Songwriting workshop you will get up close and personal with well known singers and composers who will talk about the way they go about creating music, and as songwriting is such a uniquely personal experience every workshop offers up new insights.

These workshops are open to everyone, but strictly limited in numbers to ensure an intimate experience.

Guitar workshops

As a guitarist you never stop learning, and at Rock Scholars we have some awesome guitar players who love to teach. Our guitar workshops focus on a range of topics covering all aspects of the instrument, from guitar set up and maintenance, intermediate to advanced playing techniques, soloing and improvisation, and how to dial up the killer tone.

Facilitated by some of Perth’s most respected guitarists our workshops are small group events that take place in our studio premises in Osborne Park.
