News That Rocks

July was JAM PACKED!

Battle of the Bands is in full swing, Summer camps kept rolling along, and our All-Stars are out on Tour!  

We are THRILLED to announce that School of Rock continues to be the leader in music education, and this fall we will be taking things to a whole new level!  Our mission has always been to get our students playing faster and becoming true musicians as they move through our programs, or, in other words, to offer real music education as opposed to just taking lessons.  To that end, we are rolling out two exciting new tools to our active students:  

1) Our newly minted proprietary lesson books which cover the gamut on skills, performance and more; and,

2) Our new School of Rock Lesson interactive App that will make at-home practice more meaningful.

These two new proprietary tools are the culmination of many years of music education experience through private teaching and group direction, and are built by real music professionals from our vast School of Rock network and the power of our new partnership with Hal Leonard.   This truly represents our commitment to bringing our students world class best practices that support their musical learning and goals.  We are so proud to be able to add this next level, cutting edge approach to our teaching practices and we hope you are as excited as we are!  Stay tuned for more information coming soon!

Battle of The Bands!

Our Summer Show Season is in session! This season the inmates are running the asylum with our school-wide Battle of the Bands theme. The students are picking the songs that make up their sets, making for eclectic choices across the board. Every show's got a little bit of everything, and we're excited to share with you what they've chosen.  Stay tuned for show dates and times coming soon. 
Woodstock 50th Anniversary Celebration!
50 years ago this Summer, over half a million people traveled to upstate New York for Woodstock. School of Rock MetroDC has partnered with Bluemont Vineyard to celebrate with a full day of Peace, Music, Food and Wine!

This day long event will include performances from our Summer 2019 Battle of the Bands groups, Omega, and House Bands. We will also be joined by our sister schools from Vienna and Silver Spring!

 Parents and friends can enjoy the stunning vistas, a delicious glass of wine, and the yummy menu that will be curated just for the occasion. Invite everyone you know, it promises to be a very special day! 

It's Back to School of Rock Time!

Hard to believe that summer is almost over and for parents, that means getting all the fall activities and schedule going.  Our schedule is filling up unusually early this year, so we urge returning families to call sooner rather than later so you can get the lesson time and instructor you desire.  We allow you to hold a lesson slot for two weeks prior to your start date so be sure to plan ahead.  See you soon!

AllStars on Tour!

We are so incredibly proud of our AllStars Jahan, Sumi and Daichi! These kids have worked super hard during their time with us, and it looks like they are having a BLAST on tour! Congrats, you've earned it!   We hope to be able to interview them after they get back and before they head off to college.  Stay tuned!

Coming Soon: Classes and Lessons on Saturdays!

School of Rock Ashburn is growing!  To accommodate our expanding student roster, we are opening on Saturdays initially for Rookies, Rock 101 and Drum lessons beginning August 24th. We will be adding other instruments soon.  Call Jess at the desk to find out how to secure a slot!
