September 2019 Newsletter
Our summer camps have ROCKED hard this summer - thanks to 3 Stars Brewing for letting us perform there each week!
Alas, Summer has come to an end and we have entered into Back-to-School of Rock time.
Our Summer Camps ROCKED! 
We ROCKED Woodstock's 50th & we are stoked for our Battle of the Bands performances this month!
And don't forget the most exciting news of 2019, the launching of our School Of Rock Method Books and App! 

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.

Battle of the Bands Performances COMING SOON!

Mark those calendars for one of the most epic performances of 2019. These kids have worked hard all summer with their bands and will be giving the performance of a lifetime to win the title of Best of Season!

We Celebrated Woodstock 50th

It was a stunningly gorgeous day in Bluemont VA as we shared the stage with our sister schools Vienna and Ashburn and rocked some tunes to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the festival that kinda started it all.  Performers from our Summer 2019 show season rocked the stage along with our super awesome adult crew who really stepped it up.  Somehow we think having this at a vineyard with plumbing on a sunny, non-muddy day is how it should always be.  Happy Anniversary Woodstock!
