Hey Jam Studio,
We’ve racked our brains to come up with an awesome, little, ‘Australian Music Quiz’ for all you budding musicians in Melbourne. Your general knowledge about music is as important as knowing your instrument. This quiz will help you learn a few things that you may not know about our Australian musicians, bands and the music industry. If you are able to answer all of these questions, consider yourself a bit of a genius! But if you struggle to answer some of them, then don’t worry; we’ll share them with you.
