Bridgetown High School music students rocked out to the annual Rock the Schools tour on Monday.
The federally-funded tour sees four bands gigging across regional WA to provide high school students with an insight into the music industry.
Bridgetown High School deputy principal Steve Schrama said the tour provided on-hand experience to students with music interests.
‘‘A number of students have expressed their interest in pursuing music careers and Rock the Schools gives them insight into the real-life industry,’’ he said.
Bridgetown High School music student Taylor Page, who plays the drums, guitar, piano and bass guitar, said he was interested in enrolling into a specialised music school in years 11 and 12.
‘‘I don’t think music is something I could do full-time but I probably would if I could make money from it,’’ he said.
‘‘It reinforces that enthusiasm for music for young people and if we could be up on the stagelooking down at people having as much fun as we did it would be the best thing,’’ fellow student Skye Richards added.‘‘It shows students that no matter what their passion is there is a job for them in the music industry,’’ assistant tour manger Bonnie Keenan said.
