For more than a decade, School of Rock has been inspiring kids to rock on stage and in life. Founded as a single school in Philadelphia, PA in 1998, School of Rock has become a growing international franchise, operating 69 schools in the US and Mexico.

We believe the best way to learn music is to play music. We take students from the lesson room to the stage, developing both their confidence and musicianship with programs designed for all skill levels.

School of Rock teaches guitar, bass, vocals, keyboards, drums and combines weekly private music lessons and group band rehearsals to prepare students to take the stage in front of live audiences in an authentic concert setting.  

To date our students have played thousands of concerts, to more than 100,000 people, at such legendary venues as CBGB's, The Trocadero, The Knitting Factory, The Whiskey, The Roxy, The Experience Music Project, The Big Easy and BB King's Blues Club in Times Square. We have also had the great fortune to be able to perform at music festivals from Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits, to Zappanale in Bad Doberan, Germany.

Recording/Performance Camp (Pt 1) - Recording & Performance, Epic Tracks

7/8/2013 - 7/19/2013

A derivative of our Epic albums concept, in this camp students will pick songs by their favorite artists past and present. They will learn these songs and then take them into the studio to produce the most accurate sound-a-like recording possible. We will pay attention to technique, tone, equipment, and production techniques. The students will do an in house performance on the final day of the camp where they will perform the songs live and have a listening party where the final recordings are played.


Recording/Performance Camp (Pt 2) - Song Writing and Recording

7/22/2013 - 8/2/2013

In this camp we will talk about what goes into writing a song as we analyze some examples. We will learn all the rules and then learn how to break them. The students will write their own original songs together and then take them right into the studio. The students will do an in house performance on the final day of the camp where they will perform the songs they have written and have a listening party where the final recordings are played.



8/5/2013 - 8/16/2013

A 10-day performance boot camp focusing on the music and artist of the 1969 Woodstock music festival. In this camp we will talk about all the artists that played this festival as well as a brief history of the event and why it had such a big impact. We will watch live footage from the festival. Of course, we will choose artists and songs that were performed at woodstock and learn that material. The culmination of the event will be a live performance at an *outdoor venue* on 8/16 - fourty four years to the day of the original Woodstock festival.
