News That Rocks

WOW What. A. Year.  

We experienced adversity and we rose up. And we Zoomed, and we got through it the only way we could  with MUSIC!

 But, especially, we got through it Together. And then we figured out how to rock and play music...six feet apart, with masks and plastic see through partitions, but we never let the barriers, either physical or mental, stop us.  No way! We rocked on!  And we remembered how good it feels to make music again, Together.  We also learned how important our SOR community is and how Together kindness and generosity and patience are at core of the people we call our School of Rock Family. We truly thank you for helping us weather this incredible ride that has been 2020, Together.  So here's to you fam -  we wish you a healthy 2021 filled with Music, Love and ROCK & ROLL.  

Happy New Year!

It's Jantacular 2021! (like January and spectacular, you get it.)
To do our part to stop the spread, we'll be online only for lessons and groups between January 2nd and January 8th (one week only) for those students who normally attend in person.  While we are remote this first week in January take advantage of some fun activities planned with our sister locations in Ashburn and Silver Spring.  Super Fun Instrument/Vocal Specific Sessions, A Chance to try Songwriting, Learn Mixing 101, Get Ahead with our Ear Training Class and, yes! The Jantastic Music Jeopardy Tournament for...some truely awesome prizes like a She Rocks VIP gift bag and experience ticket and some lucky winner gets to pick Dante getting some kind of haircut or something...want the details?  You will have to join to find out!
This is open to all active students so don't miss out on this Jantastic week of fun and learning!  Click to find out more and check your inbox this week for your lesson links too. 

Rookies and Rock 101... Rockin' In The New Year 

Our Rookies and Rock 101 classes filled up this Fall so we are adding more sessions!
We will be hosting Open Houses in the New Year for you to bring your kiddos to the school and check it out first hand!
For safety, we are still keeping these groups much smaller than before to ensure we can be socially distant while playing and there are a host of other safety protocols in place too.  For more information or to sign up, email Brian on vienna@schoolofrock.com to get on the list.  

Winter Break Indie Camp

We had a great Winter Break Camp ! We learned about what makes a band ‘Indie’ and how many different kinds of music we can blend into this awesome genre! We learned to jam as a band in three short days. And at the end performed songs from iconic indie bands such as The Pixkies and Arctic Monkeys! This was just a small version of how School of Rock, Rocks all year round! 

Safety Is Our Top Priority

Creating a COVID-19 safe environment has been and remains our #1 priority for students and staff when they are in the building.  We know that many of our students just want to come in person and we are doing all the safety protocols to ensure we are providing a safe environment to rock.
  • We require masks while in the building. All persons entering the school are given a symptom and temperature check
  • All persons entering the school immediately wash their hands and hand sanitizer is used frequently
  • We keep the number of people in our building at any given time to levels lower than required. We maintain social distancing at all times
  • We have barriers between vocalists and the band in our groups and a barrier is in all lessons
  • We disinfect all high touch surfaces with hospital grade disinfectant using a special misting tool that gets in every crevice, nook and cranny, and disinfect cases that our brought in by students when they arrive.
In other words, we're serious about safety!  If you think your child might do better in person, give us a call and let's give it a try.  You may also schedule a time to come see it all in person to gauge your comfort level.
