      Before coming to School Of Rock DuPage County Lauren Spakausky considered herself to be an artist, in that she didn't study a musical instrument. She sang in choir, but her focus was mainly on the visual and performing arts. Those disciplines might seem a little disconnected from the world of music but, in fact, her talents couldn't be more applicable today. She also was a teaching artist through various non-for-profit organizations in many schools across the Chicago Public School system integrating the arts into core subjects, such as language arts and mathematics.

      Lauren is the Assistant Manager and Little Wing teacher at the School of Rock Elmhurst. During her tenure, she's learned that "we're not just teaching music, we're teaching performance art and building a community". She continues, "that all trickles down to how you promote yourself in the world and how you treat the people you work with." Lauren's number one purpose in life is to make an impact in other's lives via the arts. At School of Rock Elmhurst she hopes to help cultivate a safe community for people of all ages to express themselves through the power of rock.

      When she isn't at School of Rock she is attending concerts, listening to her favorite records while reading, and walking her pitbull, Bones.

      Collin A. Bullock was born in Champaign, IL back in the dark, synth-laden days of the 1980's. He started playing guitar at the age of fifteen in an attempt to impress girls. The results have been mixed. He played in rock and roll bands through high school and college, toured the Midwest in a van that smelled terrible, and played more power chords than you can shake a stick at. He once knew how to play the entirety of Angel Of Death by Slayer, but he has since forgotten it. His favorite guitarists are Billy Corgan, David Gilmour, and Johnny Greenwood. Collin likes effects pedals and teaching kids how to rock! Collin currently plays bass in the band bloodmoney who actively gigs and records in Chicago

    • MY SUBURBAN LIFE ARTICLE: Elmhurst's School of Rock teaches life skills through music lessons

      ELMHURST – A child can learn a lot about life by picking up an electric bass and playing a concert alongside other musicians in front of hundreds of people.

      At least that’s the philosophy of School of Rock, 105 N. Maple Ave., a performance-based music instruction organization in Elmhurst that is celebrating four years since it opened for business.

      “What I have found is that with this program, music is just the vehicle; it’s not really about the music,” School of Rock Regional Sales and Marketing Manager Joanna Vassilatos said. “What it’s really about here is building the kids’ self esteem, building their confidence and building their social network. Those are the big three pieces.”

      Vassilatos has been in the music industry for more than 20 years. Before working at School of Rock, she played drums and toured with the all-girl progressive rock band Radio Vago. She also has worked with prolific songwriter Diane Warren and at the Grammy Foundation. But as rewarding as those experiences were, Vassilatos believes they were preparing her for School of Rock.

      “I feel like I was led here in a lot of ways,” Vassilatos said. “ I feel like this is more of a calling than anything else. I feel passionate about this because I see the impact it has on kids.”

      To illustrate this point she uses the story of a shy boy who discovered what it was like to be confident.

      “The first day he came in, he couldn’t look me in the eye,” Vassilatos said. “In order to have a conversation he would tell his mother and then his mother would relay whatever he said to me. When the kid came in without his mother, he was so shy that while he was waiting for his lesson he would go and read a book while facing a corner.”

      Although he was there to learn how to play the drums, he wanted to give singing a try, so he was given the chance to sing one song in a concert.

      “On the very first show he played – it gives me chills still to think about it – he is singing the song and then at one point drops the mic, gets on the ground, and does the worm in front of 500 people,” Vassilatos said. “The whole place was cheering for him.”

      Besides building confidence, School of Rock students develop other kinds of life skills. Because these kids are learning to play instruments in a band, they have to collaborate and work together for the song to sound good.

Depoimentos

  • “LOVE LOVE LOVE it here. My daughter won't stop talking about it. Great space, everyone is friendly and I love the vibe. ”
    - Judith B., Mother of School of Rock Elmhurst Student
  • “It brings me to tears to see my daughter within her own community. There's a light in my daughter that I haven't seen in years. She's really found her place at the School of Rock. I think the kids have a mutual respect for each other because they have a mutual respect for the music.”
    — Cassie, Mother of School of Rock Elmhurst Student
  • “In grade school, our son lost interest in hanging out with other kids and doing pretty much anything other than playing video or computer games by himself. Then he started going to the School of Rock, and he discovered music was his passion. Now that's all he wants to do! He shows up early to practice, wants to be there as much as possible, and loves being with his friends at School of Rock that share his same interests.”
    — Mother, Elmhurst, IL
  • “I like the personal attention my daughter gets during their lessons, and I like the team work skills she learns from being a part of the performance group. She always has fun and has the chance to make friends with similar interests from other schools.”
    -Lory L., Mother of School of Rock Elmhurst Student
