      We are excited to announce the details of our next Season Show - REGGAE FUNK.
      All Performance Programme students and Rock 101 students have been learning Reggae and Funk songs since school went back this year, which has added some great flavour to the group performances and is exposing all students to new genres, new techniques and allowing other instruments like Drums, Bass, African Percussion and Brass to be more dominant.
      Our Reggae Funk Season Show is taking place on Saturday 9th April @ Zip Zap Circus in the CBD. This is an exciting new venue for us, which has seen the likes of the Parlotones and Freshly Ground performing their over the past few years.
      Zip Zap Circus School students will be performing an intro to the Reggae Funk Season Show, which will be an exciting addition to this show and great for our younger supporters in the audience to watch.

      We held our second ever Season Show - British Invasion at the Barnyard Theatre Willowbridge on Saturday 5th December. This Season Show saw students from our Rock 101 programme (8-10 year olds), our Performance Programme (11-18 year olds) and our Adult Performance Programme (19+) performing songs by The Kinks, Rolling Stones, The Animals, Queen, The Beatles, Cold Play, Mumford & Sons, Black Sabbath and Amy Winehouse to name but a few of the British legends. The students performed to over 470 people and rocked the stage, all of them having learnt the songs only 2-3 months prior and many being new to School of Rock. It always amazes us how they grow each and every time they are exposed to the stage both in confidence and technical ability....future Rock Stars!

Testimonials

  • “High professionalism in teaching. Child, youth and adult friendly. Challenging students to improve and to grow. There is a place for people to form a band, and then also to perform. Your public performances give students and musicians an opportunity to experience being part of a concert and being on stage, and to show-case their talents (of which there are many!).”
