We’ve just finished our second Music Journalism workshop at Ashbourne Library in Derbyshire for the Writing East Midlands Young Writer’s Group. The first workshop took place on 6 February 2018 and catered for 8-11 year olds. Last night’s workshop was for 12-16 year olds and we saw just as much talent and hard work in the senior writer’s group. We even had a parent eager to join The Rockhaq Community at the end 😉
It’s been a while since our last Top Ten list, but we definitely couldn’t let the power of love go unrecognised on the Rockhaq Community, so here are our Top 5 Love Songs By Men for Valentines Day 2018. This list is a bit different. As there are literally hundreds of great songs to choose from, we’ve focused on love songs written by men, to make it easier to choose our favourites.
We’ve just carried out a special Music Journalism workshop at Ashbourne Library for the Writing East Midlands Young Writer’s Group. We’re running two separate workshops for different age groups. The first of these took place last night (6 February 2018) and catered for Year 4 to Year 7 students, who were all 8-11 years old. Although this is the youngest group we’ve worked with yet, the writers simply blew us away with their talent and enthusiasm for music journalism.
With the advent of CDs and digital downloads, the significance of making a double album has diminished dramatically. Nowadays, artists can flippantly string together 90-minute projects and it’s no big deal. In fact, the reaction to an album that long is frequently an exhausted groan. Whilst there’s always been the risk of a double album running out of steam, it’s so easy to make one these days that artists regularly stretch out 40-minutes of content for the sake of it. Prolific American garage rocker Ty Segall is changing that.
