Ethan had a great time, learned a lot and we are bonding over his new found love of 70's an 80's rock music, which is awesome! The program was not only educational, but fun, and he can't wait to come back!
Oliver had a great time interacting with the teachers and other campers, as well as getting to work hard on improving his drumming. It was great to be able to see him perform on stage in a real concert setting.
Our family was welcomed with open arms by every staff member at the School of Rock!! My daughter did the one week summer camp and "Wowed" us with an amazing performance. We signed up for the weekly lessons and the summer "Sound City" program and can't wait to see how she grows musically. The teachers are all very talented and dedicated to these children!! I am sooo glad we found this gem!!!
My son has been at School of Rock for a couple of years now. We are surprised at how very good he is at music! He LOVES School of Rock and calls it his "Home Away From Home." The best part for us is that he has confidence in his musical ability - more confidence than he ever had before - in ANY area! It's been amazing for him, and for us! It's super fun for parents, too! We love the shows and the camaraderie! Both Thumbs Up!!
The fact that they are geared toward performance. That raises the interest level and dedication of the student, leading to accelerated skills. I'm probably the oldest student here (61), but I'm excited every single week about my personal lesson and playing with the adult band. The children's band programs are unbelievable. My daughter is pregnant with my first grandson, and I really hope that he will be a School of Rock student.
James has loved getting to bring all different songs to Joel this year and immediately learn to play them on the guitar. It makes him excited about going to practice knowing that he is going to be able to have a say in the songs that he learns. He has also seen the value of working hard as he performs as a part of the band and is able to play multiple songs by working to learn the different songs to play in front of a crowd.
Our child has benefited from School of Rock by so many ways. The music education is top notch with great instructors. It has taught our child to appreciate many different genres of music. Socially the kids at SOR are very uplifting and help motivate each other to do their best.
Our kids learn music in a fun, safe environment with teachers who are knowledgeable in not just how to play the songs, but in performance and the music industry. My son has learned so much, not only about guitar, but about teamwork, stage showmanship and the history of different genres in music.
