Skopje Summer School 2008

As kick-off for the Mitrovica Rock School, 19 youths from Mitrovica spend ten rocking days in Skopje, Macedonia. The summer school was organised in partnership with Musicians Without Borders, and the Fontys Rock Academy Tilburg. It provided structured rock music education, band coaching, performance and instrument training to talented young rock musicians from Mitrovica. 

They formed multi-ethnic bands (5 in total), and were trained in rock music by the 5 coaches of the Mitrovica Rock School. The summerschool took place from 18-22 August 2008, and was a marvelling success; the young rockstars gave a way a great performance on the last day, to a cheering crowd.
