Recording Studio Visit - September 5th !!!
Thursday, 6 August 2015, 10:18am
I have booked "The Stomach" recording studio for guitar students on Saturday 5th September from 2 - 5pm.
The studio is on 84 Lombard Street in Palmerston North ( their website www.creativesounds.org.nz)
We are recording our own version of "Shake it Off' by Taylor Swift.
Students need to be able to play the chords Am - C - G and in sequence so if you are not sure about those three chords get on it now !
On the day students can be dropped off by carers and collected at 5pm. If you are travelling over from Ashhurst or Feilding and plan to stay in town for that time Harvey Norman carpark is free parking for 2 hours and is close to the venue.
Someone will be at the studio to meet you take your phone contact details (just incase we get left with a little person at the end - I'm sure it would never happen !) Also could students please bring $5 whcih goes towards the cost hiring the venue, sound engineering and mixing post production.
As well as recording a song we have a choreographer coming in to work with us on some awesome dance moves for a video that will go with the final product.
Students need to bring : Their guitar , snack and drink bottle & " can do " attitude and a smile ... the song we are covering is positive and feel good and we want that to come across in the way we play it !
Please RSVP to confirm your space by Friday 21st August by email.

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.

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.

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
