Kool Skools: Students Making Music

Music is a defining part of youth culture, and today, young people are into a huge diversity of different music. In recent decades in Australian schools, increasing numbers of students have had access to creative music programmes. More than ever before students are able to explore different musical genres, express themselves through playing musical instruments, and get their music to audiences through live performances and recording. This programme looks at how the Kool Skools project encourages a broad range of musical projects in schools and other youth organisations. Each school or project gets to work within a professional studio in either Melbourne or Sydney, recording an album of original music by their own school bands. Each project receives 500 CDs containing their own music, video, graphics and virtual photo album. All the CDs produced are CD enhanced format featuring both audio and CD rom section. State Awards Nights are held in October to showcase and celebrate the best songs and performances. In this programme, three different Kool Skools musical projects are profiled, featuring the genres of rock, jazz and chamber music.
