Kasey Chambers will impart as much knowledge as she can to the students at Tamworth’s CMAA Academy.
Songwriting, recording, you name it – it will be covered but there’s one thing she hopes the students will take away from their time in the academy above all else.
“I think the main sort of advice I always like to get across is honestly just about finding your own way in music,” Chambers said.
“I did it this certain way where it worked for me. I made a bunch of mistakes on the way which all add up to helping you down the track to not make them again and learn from them.”
Chambers went on to say, success in the music industry shouldn’t be judged on fame and fortune, adding ‘it’s not really about that’.
“All I ever try and do is make music that makes me feel alive, you know,” she said.
“I don’t always get it right. Not everyone always likes it. It’s not really about that.
“I just do my own thing and if it makes me feel alive, I feel like it has a success of its own before it even hits someone else’s ears.”
