School of Rock Performance-Based Music Programs Rock Socializing— With Social Distancing

Kids have been inspired in the School of Rock community for the last 8 and half years, learning music by playing music– together. Through programs designed for all skill levels, students go from lessons and rehearsal to performance– developing confidence, talent and teamwork skills along the way. Students, ages 7 to 18 engage in a private, one-on-one lesson. Those weekly lessons come with a bonus: the chance to be a rock star. Once enrolled, students become part of a band as well, and play in a socially distanced rehearsal each week. Bands are determined by skill level and age. They practice together for a season (about 4 months) and then play a show. This unique approach allows students to use what they learn from their teacher in the real-world setting of a band, comprised of their peers. They learn to rock on stage and in life.

School of Rock community members also have access to our one-of-a-kind, fully integrated Method app. The App provides an enhanced learning experience and reinforced practice schedule. Parents and students know what should be worked on and progress can be tracked.

Programs—Something For All Ages

Rookies

Ages 5-7. Fun musical activities and hands-on experience with guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and singing, so they can discover which instrument interests them most.

Rock 101

Ages 7-12. Your budding rock star applies music fundamentals learned in their private lessons to playing in a band. Rock 101 is a fun, low stress environment where basics are mastered while playing songs with other kids.

Junior Performance

Ages 9-12.  Upon completing Rock 101, your young rocker learns harmonies, musicianship and much more about performing as a band.

Performance

Ages 12-18. For beginner to advanced players. With several show themes each season, your team will excel from one level to the next– all while playing music they love.

Rock 101, Junior Performance and Performance Programs include a weekly private lesson and weekly band rehearsals.

Need a space for your child to complete their digital learning? The SM&NC will have education staff-led, socially distanced classroom space for a small group of students to complete their daily online school work. In the morning, students will log on (depending on the schedule for their school) and complete assignments with some breaks for activity and a snack (student-provided). We’ll have a break for lunch and some time for free play. In the afternoon, students can have additional time for work if needed, or we’ll head outside for a hike on the trails, hang out with the animals, or participate in science and nature-based programs with SM&NC staff. The classroom will be in the Farmhouse whenever possible. If additional space is required, we may split the group (with two staff) to allow for proper distancing. Classroom will be led by a professional educator and supplemented by other SM&NC education staff. Limited enrollment available. Parents will be required to provide information on school plans and curricula, as well as participate in daily health screening questions. Students must provide their own tech.
