Thirroul's very own School of Rock will be in session tomorrow as budding stars strut their stuff at a free family concert.
Three junior rock bands from the Thirroul Academy of Music, Dance and Drama will step out of the rehearsal studio and onto the stage for the first time as they show off for family and friends on an outdoor stage at the Lovedoll Superstar store.
"This is the first year of our rock band program and it's been great," said academy manager Liam Cooper.
"This is their first chance to perform together, which is so different to just lessons. They get a chance to play together, to work on their ensemble skills."
Three bands, with members aged as young as 10, will show off songs they have been working on since the beginning of the year.
Tracks from Green Day, Of Monsters and Men, Kings Of Leon and The White Stripes will be served up to audiences.
Blake Kovac, singer and guitarist for the senior rock group, said he was excited to show off his band's hard work.
"I'm really keen, it should be fun," he said.
"This will be our first performance together in the band."
The performance kicks off at 2pm tomorrow at Lovedoll Superstar on Raymond Road, Thirroul.
