Here’s a video from MRA CEO Dean Blanchard about our incredible Workpower Band!
The Music Rocks program has run with Music Rocks Australia for a number of years now, with great success. This program lets participants experience something few others have had the chance to try – being a rock star. The weekly sessions are held in a professional music studio equipped with a wide range of instruments, including:
- guitars, bass, and keyboards
- complete electronic and acoustic drum kits
- the latest DJ turntables
- vocal and recording equipment
Getting into the groove
With the guidance and support of our CSOs and the MRA professionals, our participants get immersed in the music! Participants have the freedom to try whatever instrument they like and go at their own pace. And our team have noticed that once they’ve found something they like, as Sean did with his vocals, they become focused, motivated, and committed to learning! It’s heartwarming to see how much they get involved and take initiative.
We can’t wait to see what will be the first of several incredible concerts this year!
