Perhaps you remember all those years of arduous piano lessons. For my generation, it was playing recorders in primary school. Oh, how I still hate that shrill sound with a passion. It was enough to put me off music for life.
Thankfully the world has changed and some parents have the nous to let their kids play music they actually enjoy.
Enter High Voltage Rock, a music program for kids 5 to 18 who want to rock. The organisation has been running for 15 years with the aim to get kids playing in a band setting without the long wait to adulthood.
The program caters for all ability levels who either want to play in a band or learn an instrument one on one.

This summer, they are offering free one-day holiday programs in various locations including Yarraville, Richmond, Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula (perfect if you are holidaying down that way).
Your child is matched with other like-minded young rockers and given the chance to learn their favourite songs as well as create their own sounds.
Each day finishes with a mini-concert and a chance to show off a day well spent by this assortment of budding musos.
The free day holiday program is only available to kids who are not already enrolled in the High Voltage Rock School. The full-day program starts at 9 am with sessions running from Dec 20 through to January 29.
No experience is required. You simply find a date that suits your child and sign up through Eventbrite and the school will be in touch with more details. Click here for Eventbrite booking form.
Or you can contact the school through email@example.com or their website.
This is a Child Safe accredited organisation. All High Voltage Rock School staff hold a current Working With Children Check and their leading teachers are VIT registered teachers.
