Two SoundSkool instrumentalists got access to an exclusive masterclass today, as part of our partnership with Cre8ing Vision. Level 3 students Michael (guitar) and Matthew (drums and keys) travelled to the Notting Hill Academy of Music to spend time with session musician Oli Rockberger. Oli is a successful sideman, and has played on stage with everyone from Laura Mvula to Queen Latifah.
Topics covered included building a career as a musician from a few different vantage points, including the career development side of building a brand/reputation, relationship/contact building, as well as branching in to the more creative skills-honing side. The discussion also included thoughts on songwriting and recording as a producer or artist.
As always, a massive thanks to Cre8ing Vision, along with the Notting Hill Academy of Music for the use of their facilities.
