Rockhaq Academy with Nottinghamshire Music Hub
We’re pleased to launch Rockhaq Academy with Nottinghamshire Music Hub over this academic year (2017-2018).
Rockhaq Academy is a programme of music journalism workshops taking place at a mix of major live music venues, libraries, schools and academies. All workshops will be led by Rockhaq Community founder and editor Michelle Dhillon. To find out more about our workshops and hear from students and teachers who have taken part, check out our Teachers and Schools pages.
In the workshops, Michelle will inspire students on how to use words to express their passion for the music they listen to every day. All students will be encouraged to choose and bring their own track or album to write about. This is also brilliant for developing literacy skills as Michelle’s workshops and lesson plans all meet the National Curriculum for English Literacy.
In further news, Michelle will lead a special live review workshop at Nottingham Royal Concert Hall, just before John Wilson & The John Wilson Orchestra are set to perform A Celebration of the MGM Film Musicals. Students will take part in the live music review workshop, stay to enjoy the concert and start writing their first live music review immediately afterwards.
