This Week at School of Rock: June 8 - June 13
News That Rocks

As the warm weather approaches, we've got summer on our minds!  Last week we announced some new camps to help keep the music going over the summer, and yesterday we announced our SUMMER SEASONAL SHOWS!  Although rehearsals will look a little bit differently once we get started, we're excited to get the band back together.  To learn more about how we're going to approach rehearsals once we re-open, check out Dylan's explanation below:

Missed the announcements?

Never fear!  You can learn about our camps and our Summer Seasonal shows by checking out our website.

Check out the Remote Calendar!

To help keep track of the Rehearsal Check-ins, Artist Sessions, MD Office Hours, Master Classes, and everything else going on at School of Rock, we have created this Remote Calendar for you!  This calendar is updated as new sessions are announced, so make sure to check back regularly!

Music Director Office Hours

For all of our students in the Performance Program, we are offering weekly office hours with Dylan!  Students can drop in during these scheduled sessions to ask questions about our programs and extra classes, seek advice on how to practice, bands to check out...or annoy him.  Office hours will be held every Tuesday & Thursday from 3pm-4pm, and can be accessed by clicking the link below.

Submit your Questions!

To try and get more "face-to-face" interaction, students can now submit videos of them asking questions to the artists of their choice!  To do so, record your video on your cell phone and upload them to the form.
