                                  Australia’s leading Music Industry Specialists and Artists.
                                  We’ve assembled an awesome collection of Australia’s Hip Hop
                                  artists & DJ’s to teach you! You’ll learn how to mix beats and get
                                  a crowd jumping in the DJ sessions with all the latest pop songs.
                                  In the Hip Hop sessions, you’ll learn to rhyme and drop the mic
                                  with your own song.
                                  You’ll also get an insight to the behind the scenes of the music
                                  industry with special guests. They’ll tell you their stories and how
                                  you can get your foot in the door as an artist, manager, DJ and so
                                  much more!
                                  A Graphic Designer will make a guest appearance so look your
                                  best as you’ll be in for a photo shoot. You will also receive your
                                  very own logo – by the end you’ll be a real artist.
                                  You don’t need any song writing or DJing experience – just a
                                  passion for music and hip hop, an eagerness to learn, express
                                  yourself, have fun AND be ready for a performance on the last
                                  day! You’ll get to perform with your friends and mentors, so
                                  invite your friends and family!
