“Music has positive affects on people’s emotions and creativity. When we sing together, we synchronize our breathing and feel more connected.”
I love the power of music, and that I get to invest into the next generation of amazing Rockstars! I too was a little Rockstar..a bit shy in primary school, and came gloriously out of my shell in high school..although I still lacked the confidence in myself for many years after. Whether they love to sing, dance, act, shy away from or love the spotlight, they will LOVE our encouraging, entertaining & educational School Holiday & Vacation Care workshops.

RECORDING, OCT 17
We just had our October Recording workshop on Friday 6th October.
The kids sung together as a group, and got to sing solos individually as well. They concentrated really well, & had a great experience designing their front covers for their album. I was also so excited for our new light up Make me a ROCKSTAR banner which we’ve only started using a few months ago. Such an amazing day for everyone involved. Well done Rockstars!
The kids had such a blast in the MUSIC & MEDIA WORKSHOP!! Children gained confidence & learnt new skills while having fun & making new friends. They said their favourite part was dancing in front of the green screen & singing on the microphones, performing in front of all their friends. Some even said it was great to have encouragement papers too, they liked what their new friends wrote about them.
We are already getting enquiries for our next Rockstar workshop & Christmas festivities at the end of the year. Enquire within for more information, there is more information coming soon.
Testimonial from one of our workshops:
“My daughter attended the Make me a Rockstar workshop and she thoroughly enjoyed it. It was good that ice breaker games were played at the beginning as I was a bit worried how she would go seeing as she didn’t know any other kids there. I really liked that all the kids had to write something positive down on a piece of paper about each other. My daughter now has this piece of paper stuck on her bedroom wall. It was a great introduction to singing lessons, it was a first experience for us. I really enjoyed the little concert at the end of the workshop and was surprised how well the kids performed. It was impressive that they learnt two new songs during the course of the workshop. I liked how Lauren started building rapport with each child as they arrived, paid them a compliment to make them feel welcome and comfortable.”
All workshops & activities are led by professional singers and entertainers, dancers and performers who are experienced working with children of all ages & have all relevant insurances and checks.
Some workshops are followed by a showcase for friends & family.
