Some special events took place at the Mitrovica Rock School school last month, exposing students to new genres of music outside of the pop and rock arena.
Slobodan Milivojevic, an accomplished guitarist, led a workshop for students on classical guitar. Milivojevic is originally from Croatia and has performed and taught internationally. Additionally, several jam sessions were hosted at the north branch of the school featuring participating musicians in the North City Jazz & Blues Festival.
Opportunities such as these invite new ways of approaching music making for the students and offer inspiration for those who aspire towards performance and teaching careers. The Rock School has successfully trained a number of its own students to become teaching assistants, gradually placing the future of rock music education into the hands of Mitrovica’s youth.
