Beechworth has a rich artisan community of musicians and music makers. The BMF Rock School is an initiative of the Beechworth Music Festival and aims to provide opportunities for local and regional young people interested in music to develop their skills with the support, mentoring and expertise of highly experienced local musicians and industry professionals. Rock School participants are also provided with opportunities to perform live at local venues and at the Beechworth Music Festival.

For young people to develop a career in music there is a need to be confident, encouraged and educated. Our accomplished musicians and industry specialists have a strong background in music performance, song writing, stagecraft and back stage work, audio and sound, music recording and video, DJ’ing and radio broadcast. They help Rock School participants develop basic music performance skills in an inclusive and confidence building environment.

The BMF Rock School is a three day program held at the Old Beechworth Gaol every school holidays and is open to young people from the age of 8 to 16 years of age. They form a group and work together to create a gig set list, support each other and play a live public performance in front of family friends and the general public.

Please Note:  Dependent on level of interest and any early background in music we do occasionally take children from 7 years of age. Contact us for more information.
