Start Your Path to Rock Stardom with Rockademy

Start Your Path to Rock Stardom with Rockademy

Following on from the recent triumph of Steve Vai's intimate workshop, on October 12 Nerve Centre together with Rock/Fest and SYNC Music Promise present a full day dedicated to the pursuit of rock virtuosity. Alongside Clinic, a workshop with iconic bass virtuoso Stu Hamm, there will be fully-fledged masterclasses in all the other core components of rock: guitar, vocals and drums, culminating in a jam session to finish the day.
 
Renowned as Vai's rhythmic counterpart, for over 30 years Hamm has provided a four-string support beam for some of the all-time great guitarists live and in sessions while letting his fingers take centre stage across his boundary-breaking solo work. From 12.30 – 2pm Hamm hosts Clinic, his long-running workshop on his tricks of the bass playing trade.
