    In Rock 101, students select one instrument to study, and we begin teaching fundamentals: scales, chords, notes, time signatures, and all the rest.

The skills and passion for music that we teach our students gets them ready for Rock 101 and a lasting appreciation for music.

    Our Huntington Rookies learn the fundamental concepts of pitch, rhythm, form and dynamics with age-appropriate exercises, tools and games. We encourage our students to explore a variety of instruments and play styles so they can get familiar with all parts of the musical landscape; even the most incredible solo guitar players or drummers need to understand how the rest of the band works together.

      The best way that I can introduce myself to you is to tell you my story. I cannot tell you that from a young age I knew that this was where I wanted to be, but in truth, my life has always lead me to this school. I grew up in a talented home, that is everyone had musical talent except me. My dad, a self taught musician, could play anything you put in front of him. I, on the other hand,was musically challenged. I would sing (and still do) at the top of my lungs not really caring that I was pitchy and off beat. My parents sent me for piano lessons even though I wanted to play the drums. After the second month, the instructor told me he would pay me to stop going if I promised not to tell anyone I had been his student. True story!! Our son Michael became interested in playing the guitar at a young age. My husband, Gene and I encouraged him to play but quickly realized that taking lessons just wasn't enough. Coming home and practicing on his own wasn't fun. Like most of you, I turned to my dear trusty friend Google to help us solve the problem. I asked Google what we could do to "help our child find other kids to play music with." Google replied "School of Rock." I was in disbelief. Google had made a mistake! We all know that School of Rock was a movie, how would that help my child? What I didn't know was that the movie resulted from an actual school. THE SCHOOL OF ROCK! We quickly scheduled an appointment thinking this was all just too good to be true. I had no idea that Google had not only changed my son's life, but the life of my entire family! Throughout Michael's years at School of Rock I turned my photography to the concert world. I was not only fortunate to have met some incredible artists, but I am lucky to now call them my friends. They introduced me to the music business teaching me about recording, managing, touring, the list goes on. It was around this time that Michael's band, The Inoculated Canaries started to develop into more than a garage band. It was at this time that Gene told me he knew what my calling was, he was right! We started our School of Rock knowing that it would change the lives of those who walked through our doors. Our school is a clubhouse for our students. They have a place to express themselves musically and are challenged by the incredible teachers that are here ( Jimmy, Dylan, Bill, Dan K, Bern, Josh, Lorrie, Michael, James, Dan L., Janet, Tom, Laurens and John). Together, we are the School of Rock Rockville Centre family.

      Dylan's training is Classical and Jazz but his heart is all Rock n Roll. Coming to School of Rock as a multi-instrumentalist he took the school by storm and quickly became the General Manager. With a Music Education degree from Five Towns College and now a Master's Degree in Music Education from Hofstra University, Dylan has had the incredible opportunities to perform in Chamber Orchestra, Jazz Orchestra and Theatre Orchestra on multiple instruments including the Upright and Electric Bass. Of course when not a part of the orchestra he toured with local rock bands playing drums, keys and the bass! A lesson with Dylan means a lesson in theory, ear training, performance and exposure to multiple genres of music. His students are often hit with a lightening round of "Quick, name as many Bass players as you can!"

Testimonials

  • “Magic happens at the School of Rock RVC! The staff's talent, enthusiasm and dedication to their students is OUTSTANDING! Monica Rubin and her instructors provide more than a stellar learning experience, they submerge their students into a music culture that stimulates individual creativity, confidence and a sense of community.The young musicians are encouraged to step out on stage with the loving support of their fellow musicians by their side. This is a safe place and Monica makes certain of that. She has this wonderful maternal energy and gentle soul that is wrapped up in a sassy Rock n' Roll bow. The kids adore and respect her, and so do I. I've watched my two girls grow as musicians and find their voice in this magical school. They've told me, "We are a family here" and I've seen that's true. The young musicians look out for one another and in this competitive world, thats lovely to see. Still I must confess I'm a bit jealous I'm not allowed to hang in the super cool Rockers lounge in the back but I understand that's also part of the magic. Thank you for encouraging my girls to shine and for choosing RVC as your home. Our great town is even greater because your here. I am one very grateful parent.”
    Debra B., Parent of 2 School of Rock Rockville Centre Students
  • “My daughter Julia went from not being able to play the drums to becoming a full on band member and has gotten so good in such a short period of time. I am very happy with the School of Rock!”
    Joan, School of Rock Huntington Parent
  • “The programs are intense and professional while still being fun and social for the kids. They learn so many real world skills but think they are having a good time with their good friends. My son would go everyday if he could and feels inspired. He practices regularly and does not want to let his fellow band mates down. The more he works the more he loves music. Any program that inspires you to work your hardest,do your best and love every minute of it, truly has achieve all I could hope for my kid and I really believe School of Rock has achieved that.”
    Aleta Winick, School of Rock Rockville Centre Parent
  • “The School of Rock is an amazing place for kids to become musicians in a creative, safe, and fun environment. My children - ages 9 and 10- absolutely love being a part of the School of Rock Family. The teachers are not only very talented musicians, but they are also great with kids. Both of my children have gained so much confidence being part of their program. Best of all...they are playing awesome music! I love hearing them practice and listening to their progress!! I highly recommend that anyone with a child who has an interest in music visit the school- I guarantee you will be very impressed and jealous that there was nothing like this when we were kids!!”
