The school’s rock band program started informally many years ago with a small group of Year 7 students. Since 2011, Mr Eddie Parise has been employed to tutor the students and Takari now has two rock bands – a Year 5 and a Year 6 band. Students are learning to play basic guitar, bass, keyboard, drums and vocals to contemporary and classic pop/rock songs. Planned performances occur towards the end of the school year, including assemblies and the ‘Night of the Rising Stars Showcase’.
Both bands rehearse on Wednesday mornings; Year 5 Rock Band at 8.00 am and Year 6 Rock Band at 8.40 am.
