Concert Update - Soundcheck schedule
Tuesday, 12 November 2013, 3:27pm
Our concert event is fast coming up on 23rd November starting at 7pm. The venue is St Albans Church & Community Centre 339 Albert Street, Palmerston North. I'm really looking forward to hearing the students rock out with the band ! Tickets are available from me this week and next .There will be door sales.
The afternoon of the concert day we have time put aside for students to come in and run through their song with the band and walk through the backstage area to see where everything is.. Below is a schedule for this. I appreciate not everyone may be able to make it. If you cant just be sure your guitar is backstage by 6:30pm so it can be tuned before you go on.
For those of you who have not been to one of our gigs, all guitars are kept backstage during the show. Students sit with their family/friends during the show and go backstage to collect their guitar two songs before they are due to go to and perform their small group song. Backstage we have helpers who check the tuning and guide students to where they need to be . After having performed students return their guitars backstage and go back to sit with their family again. Just before our finale songs, ALL students go backstage, collect ther guitars and come back on to the lift the roof off the building !!!
A programme will be provided on the night, so you will know what is coming up. It's not as chaotic as you might imagine and alot of fun.
Remember guys to keep practicing hard EVERY DAY so you will be at your best come showtime. You can do it !
See you soon

Just a quick e-mail to say we would like Luke to continue with guitar lessons at Rongotea school next year. Also we would like to say that we thought the end of year concert was fantastic. Jason (Lukeâ€™s dad) was so inspired he has gone out and brought new strings for his guitar and intends to have a â€œplay around againâ€ (maybe he can practice with Luke!) Thanks again Tania

Hi Craig Jayden has really loved his lessons with you this year so we are wanting to re-enrol with you for next year, if you have a place for Jayden and for his older sister Mya that would be great.

Hi Craig I have attached a video of you & Jacob playing "I Walk the Line". We are so proud of Jacob, he did so well. To be on stage playing in front of an audience with just the two of you is not something he would have been able to do a year ago. Chris & I want to thank you for everything you have taught Jacob. He has come a long way with his guitar and really enjoys it. We know he will keep it up. Thanks again. Regards Nikki
Hi Craig Elton and myself (along with our other two children) would like to thank you immensely for the fantastic guitar concert you held a couple of weekends ago. We are not a "musical" family and having Charlie being so interested in the guitar has meant we have had to become interested by default. We have supported his weekly lessons and enjoyed listening to him practise (especially on his electric guitar). We couldn't have enjoyed the concert more and my husband said he would have "gone again the next night". So there is some feedback from some "unmusical" folk who really appreciated the time effort and high quality of your show. Thank you so much.
