Kool Skools is an exciting Recording and Multimedia Project for secondary level students. The project has been incredibly successful over the last 10 years and the 2nd decade is now shaping up to be even bigger ! Projects are open to all secondary schools and council youth agencies, youth associations or clubs.
Kool Skools promotes, develops and supports a diverse range of talent and all genres of contemporary music writing and performance. 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. Approx. 40 acts will get to perform live. The awards nights are modeled on the ‘ARIA Awards’ and feature well known industry personalities and famous bands reading out the nominations and presenting the awards. For those who don’t play music or sing, Kool Skools also provides a great opportunity to be involved in video, photography, the CD artwork and the whole multimedia process. Kool Skools is a real gateway to the music world – not just a school project!
