Rock School Clinic

Our dedicated band program by local muso Carl Fidler is starting on Wednesday the 19th of May with sessions for Tweens and Teens.

Carl is an experienced teacher, band coach and performer who has enjoyed a varied and dynamic career. As branch manager of TasMusic his job was literally to nurture young musicians. He delivered an annual statewide band competition for high schoolers - a huge event, drawing thousands of spectators and launching careers, with additional songwriting support. Carl has taught sound production and radio broadcasting at TAFE, and through his band The Dead Abigails toured with the likes of the Whitlams, INXS and Thirsty Merc during the 2000s. He's a Freo man now and has been snapped up by Champion music while still running a variety of personal projects.


This program will be tailored to meet the kids where they are at, for a fun and skill-building experience as they learn to jam, write songs and collaborate. All abilities are welcome, and participants are free to experiment with different instruments and styles.

Come along to fine tune your ear, learn how to jam, explore composition and songwriting, build confidence, nurture creativity and make some musical friends in a vibrant social atmosphere. We can’t wait to welcome you to Penny Lane’s.

Teens: Wednesdays 6-7.30pm
Tweens: Saturdays 10-11.30am

Starting Wednesday the 19th and Saturday the 22nd of May for five weeks - Term Two weeks Five to Ten.

$125 for all 5 weeks, with the potential for an end-of-term concert if our musical participants are interested (and we think they will be!)

To secure your place call or text Cathy at 0450793729, send an expression of interest here stating your child’s name, age and musical background, or apply through our TryBooking.

All classes will be held in house at 48 Knutsford Street Fremantle 6160.
