JAY-Z' Producer & Drummer - premiere workshop series for JMC Academy students and friends this week!
Students at JMC Academy are about to learn everything they've ever wanted to know about [net]working, learning and growing in one of the most rewarding fields of music today.

JMC Academy in conjunction with Added Flava Audio Labs is proud to announce for the first time in history, the Australian workshop series conducted by Jay-Z' Audio Engineer, Record Producer and DJ - Young Guru, and Drumming legend - Tony Royster Jr. Students will be given on-campus priority access to an exclusive two hour workshop Q&A with Young Guru and a 1 hour Drum Clinic with Royster.

In addition to this opportunity, JMC Academy film students will be capturing the sessions nationally. 'Guru' and 'TRJ' are all about educating and mentoring, and upon their suggestions will be donating proceeds from the workshops to Father Chris Riley's Youth Off the Streets for disadvantaged and homeless youth in Australia.  Read more.

High-school students win at Martini Film Festival

In recognition of the supremely talented high school-aged filmmakers, JMC Academy ran an award category aptly named the 'Mocktails' within JMC Academy's annual Martini Film Festival.

The awards and corresponding accolades go to Savannah Lamble from Pymble Ladies College Sydney for her film I'M SORRY and Alexandra Maranon from Dandenong High School Melbourne for her animation film CARTOON COOKIES .
