Go behind the scenes with Y Rock Professionals
A songwriting and performance workshop for students interested in understanding the creative process of the entertainment industry and development towards industry standard. No experience necessary.
Y Rock was launched in 2005 to provide a pop-culture platform for talented teenagers to express themselves through music composition, performance and digital media. Since then, Y Rock has organised over 150 live events at venues such as Orange Peel, The Edge, Hard Rock Café, Hong Kong Cyberport and Discovery Bay in conjunction with The Big Picnic Community Music Festival and HKAPA. YRock talent is also chosen each year to perform at Clockenflap and at this year’s HK Rugby 7s in April.
Y Rock has produced many original music recordings. They can be heard on the YRock Sound Cloud channel. Many of these have received airplay and promotion from local media networks including RTHK, Radio 3 and SCMP.
The first 3 days are spent working to create your own original music and arrangements. This is done at school in the music rooms with band equipment set up, plus practice rooms so you can split up into your groups and work on your songs.
At the end of each day you will perform what you have developed so far to get you gradually used to performing.
Day 4 will be spent at a recording studio (you will be taken in groups throughout the day).
Day 5 we rehearse for a performance to parents and friends at around 2pm on Friday afternoon.
