Recording Studio Visit - October 24th !!!

Thursday, 6 August 2015, 10:18am

Hi Everybody


I have booked "The Stomach" recording studio for guitar and ukulele students on Saturday 24th October from 2 - 5pm.

The studio is on 84 Lombard Street in Palmerston North 

(their website

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 ! Important to say the time together is not a lesson - so you are expected to be able to play the three chords.

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. 

My wife Rochelle and I will be at the studio to meet you take your phone contact details.  We are suggesting 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 hope to have a senior dance student from PNGHS come in to work with us on some awesome dance moves for a video that will go with the final production. We will be taking photo's of students to document the event and use in the which we will show at the end of year concert.   

Students need to bring : Their guitar , snack and drink bottle. A " can do " attitude and a smile is also really important to bring please... the song we are covering is positive and we want that to come across in the way we play it !

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

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 (Luke’s dad) was so inspired he has gone out and brought new strings for his guitar and intends to have a “play around again” (maybe he can practice with Luke!) Thanks again Tania

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.
