the stage is calling
The Performance Program is School of Rock's hallmark music program, where tens of thousands of students enroll each year. Utilizing the patented School of Rock Method, Performance Program consists of a weekly group rehearsal where kids and teens learn by playing rock music's most iconic songs with a band composed of their peers. Students are assigned songs and parts that are tailored to them based on their age, experience, and ability to learn new skills and concepts. Students then work through their parts in weekly private music lessons, and refine the skills and concepts that those songs introduce. The goal of this curriculum is to prepare kids and teens for live performances. Every few months, Performance Program students take the stage and play at local music venues in front of a live audience.

BEST OF THE 80'S
mondays, 5:15pm-7:15pm or 7:15pm-9:15pm | ages 13-hs senior
The 80’s were a truly exciting and innovating decade in music. The popularization of synthesizers and keyboards brought new electronic music to the mainstream (such as Devo and Duran Duran) while hair metal and new sub-strains of rock rose to popularity (Motley Crue and Poison). Some of the most iconic bands of the era even combined all of it together (such as Journey and The Cure) to create something unique. Don’t forget your cassettes and your hairspray!
