We’ve been here most weekends throughout July hosting some Rock School exam sessions and this morning we have another group in.
Apart from the early starts and late nights getting the studio ready, these days are always a pleasure.
Everyone who comes here for the day – pupils, parents, teachers and examiners are always friendly and excited about their exam – and often just a little bit nervous – mostly the parents!
First up this morning is Thomas – it’s his first exam and he’s quite nervous. He’s warming up now and sounding great! Whenever I sit in on these exams (and I know it’s the same for the other Hub guys), it reminds me that there’s a great pool of talented young musicians out there who will one day be in bands, playing their own music and hopefully rehearsing and recording here!
In fact, that’s given me an idea…
If Thomas is anything to go by, there’s a cracking little drummer in the making – so if any of our regular bands are in need of a drummer in about 11 years – let me know and I’ll see if he’s available!
Good luck again to everyone taking their exams today. You’ll do brilliantly I’m sure!
