Our daughter, Grace, enrolled at Rise Academy in 2018 to do the DJ course and is currently doing the Music Production Course this year. Rise has taken our quiet, shy girl to heights that we couldn’t have dreamed of. Grace has performed 3 times on big stages, with big names at their U-PARTYs. She has been helped, guided, and mentored every step of the way. Grace is, at the tender age of 17, running a thriving DJing business. Rise Academy are always so willing to help and under the mentorship of James Verkerk, our daughter has blossomed into a rising star. We are so grateful to Rise for affording our daughter this wonderful opportunity and we can’t wait to see how far Grace can go in the music industry. We have found Rise Academy a very professional company to deal with and we would highly recommend them to anyone thinking of getting into the music industry.
