Check Out What’s Happening In May At School Of Rock – Elmhurst

PROGRAM ENHANCEMENTS

We are extremely excited to announce a major enhancement to our Rehearsal Check-Ins and a new way for our students to experience musical collaboration. Students will be recording themselves playing their parts through primarily audio, but also video! These recording will be critical tools used to measure progress and will result in a full-band recording that our students get to keep! Using the recording assignment that students are submitting weekly, School of Rock will be taking the best songs from each performance and compiling a digital album! Here’s what you can expect:

-       An exciting finish to the season – In May, we will be focusing on the process of recording. In June, we will be identifying the best tracks of each show and begin refining them into a finished album as a group, complete with a digital album booklet to recognize the hard work students have put into the season

-       A deeper dive into what it takes to be a recording musician. We’ll talk about mix notes, performance tips, mic placement, and so much more.

-       A digital download of the best songs each show has to offer.

-       A cover art contest which will give your student the opportunity to design the cover art for each album. You can find more information HERE!

-       A digital commemorative album booklet that will feature the best moments of the season! You can submit photos from your lesson or practice sessions HERE.

-       An album launch party on Saturday, June 28th @ 5:00 PM – This will be open to everyone and we will listen to the finished songs, show off the album art, and discuss the entire project from start to finish.

-       A proper senior sendoff – We have some awesome seniors that deserve to be recognized! 

FAMILY OPEN MIC NIGHTS!

Every Friday night at 6:00 PM we will be having a family-friendly open mic night! Students are invited to come and perform originals or covers! And, of course, other family members are encouraged to duet! Get signed up HERE!

END OF SEASON SHOW

We know our end of season shows are a highlight and want to provide an update about our current show season. As of now, we believe it is unrealistic that we will be able to hold season shows in our traditional format and believe postponing them any longer than June will hinder our ability to effectively keep students engaged in the material and teacher music, which is always our priority!

In lieu of a live performance, we will host an end-of-season Listening Party where we will debut the Recording Project each show will create! This will take place Saturday, June 28th @ 5:00 PM. Friends and family are invited to join us to hear your recordings so students can have the recognition they deserve for their hard work, especially during this unique and challenging time.
