Center Stage - Go Sammi!

Our awesome Samantha Wallace has made it to round two of the Center Stage talent search - a joint effort between School of Rock and Atlantic Records. She has made it to the second round and is one of 40 competing for a chance to go to LA for some serious exposure. Check out her rendition for this round. GO SAMMI!! #centerstage
The Center Stage Artist Search Program is an opportunity to be seen by a major record label. Singers ages 13-19 were eligible to submit an audition video as part of the selection process. Selected artists will then have an opportunity to participate in a recording session, and perform in a live artist showcase with record label executives in Los Angeles.

The School of Rock Method  App & Method Books!

We are super, super excited to announce truly next level music education tools for our students!   We had a sneak peak this week and were blown away by what we have seen and can't wait to roll this out to our students!

So what's the deal?  Coming this October there are two incredible, patent-pending, cutting edge tools for our students to use to grow in skill faster & further, and have more fun while practicing at home.

First,  Our newly minted Method Books. 
School of Rock brought together the best music curriculum minds in the business and they did a deep dive into our approach and methodology.  From that they have created our proprietary School of Rock Method Books that are designed to ensure that our students get all the technique, musicianship, and yes, theory, that a musician should know and study in their private lessons.  The Method Book will be the backbone of the weekly private lessons along with learning song parts and readying for group band practice.  Yes we are still focused on ear training, this is more to ensure full skill development as students progress through our program.  Then you will add...

Our patent-pending School of Rock Method App that takes At Home Practice to a new level!
Our new School of Rock Method App* is a cutting-edge app that connects our students to the lesson room and offers skill feedback during at home practice, demonstrations of skills for students to follow and play and and a ton more!  Parents can check the app too or get a notification when their child completes a homework assignment and see the weekly assignments.  Your Teacher will assign homework in the app that correlates to the Method Book but now, when you go home, you can dial into demos of the concept being taught, try to play along and even record your homework for your teacher to review at the next lesson.  Concepts, backing tracks and more are all in the app to help you grow in skill faster and more confidently week over week.  AND THERE IS SO MUCH MORE!

Stay tuned for more information on all the cool bells and whistles this app has and get ready to accelerate your playing skills!  THIS IS BIG!!
There's No Place Like School of Rock! 

*Only available to active School of Rock students.

Woodstock Rocked!

We had an epic day out at the beautiful Bluemont Vineyards, performing our musical tribute to Woodtock's 50th Anniversary! 
So many incredible performances from our Summer Season "Battle of the Bands" Performance Groups, JV and House Bands, as well as our Reggae Rock Adult Grad School Band! Great to see our sister schools Silver Spring and Ashburn killing it too!
