Programs

  • School of Rock Philippines'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. No matter what they perform, our students will learn incredible skills and enjoy epic experiences that will last a lifetime.

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

  • At School of Rock Philippines, we know how to bring the world of music, and the fun that comes with it, to adults.

      A businessman in the morning and a musician at night, Darrell Villanueva is one of our resident guitar instructors. At a young age, he was formally trained in piano but later shifted his concentration into guitar. While attending college, Darrell had an active band, Tension; playing covers of Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Led Zeppelin covers and original compositions that fit his unique high-pitched singing voice (can you say Sebastian Bach or Axl Rose?) Plus, gigging, competing (and winning) all over Metro Manila. Darrell is an example of never giving up your passion—and that’s just one of the many things he is ready to share.

      Drummer of the Oktaves, The ButcherCons and Hilera

      In February 2004, band mates Chris Padilla and Ivan Garcia decided to form their own 3-piece band. After months of searching, Chris' brother Bobby was showing potential with his drumming skills. They decided to move forward with their lineup and in December 2004 “Hilera” was officially formed.

      The band joined the “Nescafe Soundskool Battle of the Bands” in 2005. The competition saw the young band winning the top spot and scoring a recording contract with EMI Philippines. Since then, the band has been very active and has been nominated in various award shows such as the NU Rock Awards, Myx Music Awards, IFM Pinoy Music Awards, SOP (Pasiklaband) and other local award giving bodies.

Testimonials

  • “School of Rock has taught me how to perform in public with self-confidence. ”
    — Dan, 18, Downingtown, PA
  • “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
  • “You want your kid to be passionate about something, whether it be sports, scouts, dance or whatever. School of Rock does this for my son. We have discovered a talent we didn't know he had. My son would live at School of Rock if he could. We’ve already recommended the program to several friends. ”
    — Susan Snyder, Clifton, VA
  • “Our son explored many other extra-curricular activities prior to SOR, and no other activity was able to keep his interest. He has been challenged with new material, gained a foundation in theory and songwriting, as well as learned how to work in a group with other students to put on phenomenal rock 'n roll concerts in real" concert venues." ”
    — Trisha Ybarra-Peters, Leesburg, VA
