Rock and roll reality 'is a little different' Music mentor: Guitar tutor Ryan Kershaw offers coaching to up-and-coming bands. Photo: STEPHANIE FAWCETT By STEPHANIE FAWCETT Beinginabandcanbea bit of a struggle. But guitar teacher Ryan Kershaw knows how to get musicians on the right track and he has the Mentoring Suc- cess award to prove it. Ryan received the award at the 2012 Music Managers Awards and he says he draws on years of band experience when giving advice to up-and-comers. I ve been in bands since I was 12. I struggled and pushed and pushed for years and there s a lot of great artists out there going through the same thing. They don t know what that next step should be, the Cockle Bay resi- dent says. It s not enough to have the drive if you re making too many mistakes along the way. But if you mix people s energy and enthusiasm for something with a bit of knowledge then you can get them where they want to go. Ryan has been coaching bands for about four years and he also supports New Zealand musicians by putting together festivals and tours. I m more into alterna- tivemusicsoIgotalotof artists together and created the Underground Festival which was held in March, he says. And I m organising Guitars on Fire to show- case New Zealand s best guitarists next year. Ryan may have a blast being a musician but it s not all fun and games. People think that rock and roll is all partying but the reality is a little bit different. You have to balance the parties with working hard and that really comes into it when I mentor bands. I help them with all kinds of issues: How to set up a tour, how to manage relationships within the band and how to get their music out there. After teaching older bands and those who have just left school Ryan has seen his fair share of the difficulties musicians can face. I have my own band and I ve helped out mates bands and I think the biggest obstacle for bands is not asking for advice. You can t learn everything by yourself and there s always some- thing new to learn, he says. I m always happy to answer any questions people have. The number one thing I tell bands is to keep looking for people that can help you and support you. And never stop trying.

Curtain falls on Movies in Parks Aucklanders are set to lose a cornerstone sum- mer event after its funding was cut by Auckland Council. Movies in Parks is a series of free, outdoor movie screenings in parks, during summer, run in tandem with the Music in Parks pro- gramme. Around 50,000 people attend the combined music and movies every year. But the free outdoor movies have been cut from the 10-year long- term plan to save about $150,000 a year. The Music in Parks pro- gramme will continue to receive funding from Auckland Council. Open Air Cinema operator Urs Bauer says the loss of the event is a mistake and he took his argument to the Auckland Council Culture, Arts and Events forum this month. Silo Park s weekly Silo Cinema is run sep- arately and will con- tinue as part of a strat- egy by Waterfront Auckland. -- Fairfax NZ Arrest after gun fired A man has been arrested after a gun was fired out of a window during an altercation with repo men. Public safety officers, a police dog handler and the Eagle helicopter sur- rounded a house on Ennis Ave in Pakuranga on Tuesday night, Detec- tive Senior Sergeant Darrell Harpur says. There was a veritable confrontation which led to a male occupant at the address discharging a firearm out of the win- dow, he says. The address was sur- rounded and a suspect was successfully appre- hended and arrested and charged.
