Programs

  • School of Rock Macarthur's Performance Program is all about translating our students' abilities to play in the lesson room to performing for real on stage. In addition to refining their overall skill and proficiency as musicians, students learn what comes with being part of a band: teamwork, collaboration, and the special brand of fun that only comes from sharing awesome experiences with others.

    Students learn, absorb, and perform iconic hits from some of history's greatest rock and roll performers including The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Van Halen, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin and many more.

At School of Rock Macarthur, we believe that playing music together is the only real path to mastering an instrument and developing a true love for music.

    In Rock 101, we focus our instruction on the one instrument that students have chosen to study. Whether we’re teaching scales, chords, notes, or time signatures, we put concepts in context so students understand how the principles they learn are applied to real music. Using some of the world’s most famous songs and infusing fun into every chord, Rock 101 allows Macarthur students to enhance their skills and move on to our Performance Program.

    School of Rock Macarthur’s Rock 101 students can expect:

    Each summer, our AllStars embark on an authentic concert tour to perform in jaw-dropping live shows across the country, including Red Rocks, Lollapalooza, Hangout Music Fest, NAMM, Gathering of the Vibes, and countless others. AllStars also get to share the stage with experienced, larger-than-life performers like Alice Cooper, Eddie Vedder, and Slash, to name a few. There is no better way for a star on the rise to get a taste for what professional music is really like.

  • At School of Rock Macarthur, we know how to bring the world of music, and the fun that comes with it, to adults. We get our students playing and learning at rapid-fire speeds through real performances of their favorite songs, instead of your old traditional music instruction programs with piles of sheet music and hours of rote memorization. At School of Rock Macarthur, the stage can be yours at any age.

    Our adult students learn the fundamentals of music, including scales, chords, notes, progressions, and more, from real-world instruction through some of the most iconic songs and sounds in music history.

Using proprietary set-ups for guitar, bass, drums and keyboard, as well as other tools, we introduce our Rookies to music fundamentals in a fun way. The skills and passion for music that our Rookies learn prepares them for Rock 101 and a lifelong love of music.

    With exercises, tools and games customized to their age group, our (geomodifer) Rookies learn the concepts of music theory, rhythm, pitch, form and dynamics as they play alongside their friends. We encourage our students to explore various instruments and play styles so they begin to understand how individual contributions form a band; even the best solo keyboard players or vocalists need to understand how an ensemble works.

    All students in Macarthur’s Rookies Program can expect:

    • Weekly group lessons using guitar, bass, keyboard and drums
    • Exposure to essential fundamentals like music theory, pitch and rhythm
    • A focus on teamwork and collaboration
    • An understanding of what it means to play solo and in a group
    • Fun combined with practical learning!

Music is the gateway to childrens’ growth, whether it’s in the form of great friendships from shared musical experiences or the joy of hearing an inspirational song for the first time.

    Our Little Wing students at Macarthur enjoy a unique variety of music-minded games based on some of the most popular music in rock and roll history. Through great music and a foundation of fun, our students refine their motor skills, coordination, pre-literacy, and group cooperation in a safe and inclusive environment.

    • Exploration of hand percussion and other tools to spark their imagination
    • Unique and engaging music games
    • Teamwork, cooperation, and group music activities

      We were on the hunt for new talent in our teaching staff. We required a guitar teacher of Legendary proportions. Then Alysoun strutted through the front door with her Gibson SG strapped to her back. the only words she uttered were "Don't worry your search is over."she then proceeded to wail out the ENTIRE solo from Michael Jacksons 'Beat It'. every pluck of the strings echoed out a scream of pure Rockitude. We were sold, if it wasnt enough that she delivered a killer solo she then went on to detail her Music career, From playing in bands to being a recording artist while studying, and that is only what she has accomplished THIS year.Alysoun has now joined our School of Rock family. She is equiped to teach all ages, so if you have a little rocker or Rockette who would love to learn the art of the Axe (Guitar). Alysoun is who you call.
