AUSTRALIA'S most renowned bass player and local boy, Victor Rounds, will be holding a clinic in Nadi next month for youngsters and musicians wishing to develop their music skills.

Rounds, renowned for playing alongside Australian greats like Jenny Morris and international stars like Elton John, will share his experience in the music industry, one that has spanned four decades.

He will be in the country as part of the Sydney Fijian Musicians Association's All Back Home 2014 tour.

The Nadi workshop which is scheduled for Tuesday June 10 at the New Nadi Farmers Club has been organised in partnership with the Western Musicians and Entertainers Association.

"This is a great opportunity to learn, not only about bass guitar skills, but also about how to conduct your business as a musician," said association general secretary Homer Fare.

The tour kicks off on Saturday June 7 at the Royal Suva Yacht Club.

The first event held at the same venue last year raised in excess of $10,000 for the St Giles Hospital patient fund.
