NCAT Announces Touring Opportunity and Classes With Rebecca Barnard

Australian rock legend Rebecca Barnard has taken up a teaching residency with the Northern College of Arts and Technology (NCAT), and applications are now open for 15 positions that will receive tuition from Barnard, culminating with a tour as her backing band.

The hands on course promises to develop skills in songwriting, recording, rehearsal techniques, performance, stagecraft, vocal techniques and more - all under the guidance of Barnard.
 
“At the end of the year I take the students on the road with me - as my band," said Barnard in a statement. "We played at venues along the Great Ocean Road – including Apollo Bay, Lorne and Aries Inlet. The gig in Lorne just went off – and the students got a taste of how it feels to be wanted and have their music appreciated."
 
As well as receiving experience and paid gigs, successful applicants will complete the course with a full Certificate IV in Music.
 
Rebecca Barnard is an Australian singer/songwriter, garnering success with her band Rebecca's Empire alongside an acclaimed solo career. 

Applications open through NCAT Music from Monday November 16, with auditions held from Tuesday November 24.
