If you love creating, learning or playing music, you will know that having a great teacher is of tremendous help. Finding the right teacher for the music you enjoy is not as hard as it used to be ever since the School of Rock education began. The recent School of Rock’s access to famous musicians, might just be the best dream come true for any music lover out there.
School of Rock is a leader in performance-based music education. Today there is the limitation of travel and lock down in most parts of the world. Therefore they recently announced School of Rock Remote program. This is virtual, one-on-one music lessons for its 40,000 students worldwide.
“At School of Rock, the health and safety of our students is our top priority, which is why we have rapidly adapted our operations in order to meet students’ needs,” said Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock. “School of Rock Remote along with our School of Rock Method App is a fantastic way to provide continuity and connection. Our instructors are gigging musicians, and they have shown their flexibility to make sure the music goes on.”
School of Rock’s access to famous musicians started with a thousand kids talking online to Jay Weinberg, the drummer of Slipknot. Followed by Frank Zummo from Sum 41. Later the PINK Band joined them. And list goes on.
They are giving students live daily online tutorials and Q&As with many of their idols. And musicians with Bon Jovi, Alice Cooper, Guns N’ Roses, Beyonce and Stevie Wonder are next on the schedule.
School of Rock provides students of all ages an exciting and engaging learning environment for taking guitar lessons, drum lessons, bass lessons, keyboard lessons, and singing lessons. Drawing from all styles of rock and roll, School of Rock students learn theory and techniques via songs from legendary artists such as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and Frank Zappa.
Artist sessions are only open to currently enrolled students at no additional cost.
“We know everyone at home is looking for ways to engage and explore. That’s why we are collaborating with world-class artists to provide our students with an intimate opportunity to connect,” said Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock. “We put the word out and the response has been incredible. I am particularly proud that our team is using this opportunity to advance the cause of suicide prevention.”
The artists are also helping to raise awareness for School of Rock’s philanthropic partner, the Society of Prevention of Teen Suicide.
The school’s performance-based approach, has helped the students reach platforms such as American Idol, The Voice and Broadway. Likewise they have also helped improve the instrumental skills and confidence on the big stage.
