Programs

  • School of Rock Orangeburg'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.

At School of Rock Orangeburg, 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 Orangeburg students to enhance their skills and move on to our Performance Program.

    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.

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 Orangeburg, 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.

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 Orangeburg’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

    • Fun combined with practical learning!

      Rookies classes are enrolling for this Spring. Rookies is the ideal way to introduce your 5, 6 or 7 year old to music without taking on the expenses of purchasing expensive instruments or private lessons. Rookies is a preparation class for our younger student to provide them the basic skills and tools they will need before they enter private lessons. When students understand basic concepts like counting, the music alphabet and basic notation, and they show an inclination toward a favorite instrument, we then graduate them to our Rock 101 program. Classes are 1 hour per week and are limited to 5 spots. Classes will run this May and June on Tuesdays from 4:15 to 5:15. Parents must be pre-registered for the month.

  • “The School of Rock program has and continues to give my son a platform to shine. It provides a safe and fun outlet for expression, and a life long influence that will positively impact his future. As parents, we are grateful for the opportunity the School of Rock has afforded our son and to see him perform is truly a proud experience. School of Rock Orangeburg NY ”

  • “School of Rock. The best music school anywhere. This whole idea of getting kids not just taking lessons and learning notes and chords, but learning songs and playing with other young musicians, and getting out on stage… I was so impressed that my daughter Cheyenne goes to School of Rock on Long Island. ”
    — Dee Snider, Twisted Sister
  • “My 9 year old daughter has been in the school of Rock for about 2+ years. She had been taking 1-on-1 classes elsewhere. She had learned to play a couple basic songs. When I read about School of Rock I decided to give it a try. I was skeptical at first. Instead of learning to play songs as she had been doing before, she was practicing chords, and parts of songs, scales and so on. Then she performed at Nyack Farmers Market. She played guitar one song, bass one song, and sang one song. For me it was like being back stage for a U2 concert. Nothing can describe seeing your kid perform in a band. That was after less than a year with School of Rock. A year later, I get it. Now she is truly a musician. Not someone who can play a song or two, but a musician. One of those mysterious people who just understands music. She is rehearsing for a concert at the Pearl River Brew House. More complicated parts, more singing. Yes I am excited about that, and my wife and I are amazed at the sounds she can coax out of her guitar. The understanding of music that has evidently become ingrained in her. There are the other ineffable benefits as well, such as confidence and work ethic - I no longer have to force her to practice, because as a part of a band, she WANTS to be good. And she has finally grasped the concept that she actually can get good at anything she sets her mind to, as long as she works hard at it. Yep, worth every penny. As a final note, from what I have seen, Shuman and his staff are amazing with the kids.”

  • “The School of Rock experience is unlike anything I have ever experienced. Top notch teachers and staff, and the talent and passion of young minds combine to allow students to experience what it is like to be in a rock band. They perform at live venues with real audiences and are challenged to be the best that they can be. Only wish they had had one around when I was a teenager!”
