Every Friday morning during Home Room, three Year 11 students - Toby, Pieter and Kit - meet in the Music rooms and raise the roof with their thrilling music.
First friends outside of class, they soon discovered through Nagle’s Music curriculum that they all share the same love of and taste in music - hard core rock! Inspired by true rock legends and artists such as Adrian Smith, the boys were sparked by their role models to become a band. Even though the group has now been playing for over a year, they still have not developed a band name, a “work in progress”.
Disappointingly, the ATAR Year 11 music course did not run in 2020 due to low numbers, however, the group are still eager to perform and are searching for outside gigs to showcase their talent.
By practicing during school hours and occasionally in a studio in their free time, their love for rock music has blossomed, leading towards their recent performance during the Break 1 Concert Series in the Great Court, which gathered a large crowd. They wish to encourage other students to follow a music pathway at NCC and express their own love for music.
Even though the boys’ future outside of school is undecided, they plan to continue playing their music for the rest of their schooling days and see where life takes them. We wish the boys the best of luck in the future and are looking forward to more performances from them.
Toby, Pieter and Kit will be playing a set at the upcoming Mental Health/Arts Week PCP in Week 2, Term 3. The boys are currently rehearsing four to five songs that they can play fast and loud to a large student audience in the Gymnasium.
Well done Toby, Pieter, and Kit!
