The instructors are great and my son loves learning in the band environment. The end of season concert at Herman’s Hideaway is so much fun and watching the talented older kids really inspires the younger ones.
All of the teachers are committed to inspiring passion for music in their students. They eat, breathe and study music all the time. I can't say enough good things about this school. If your kids are into music and want to improve their skills, this is the best thing for them.
I love that it provides a creative outlet - creativity is all too easy to lose if not developed. It also helps the kids learn to work both together and individually to achieve a common goal. Not only does this keep them engaged in something "meaningful" and fun - the skills they develop also transfer well beyond the lighted stage!
My daughter has learned a lot and enjoyed the interaction with teachers and students. Her teachers push her to work hard and practice and be part of the team that is her rock band in a really great way. She is having a blast.
It is evident that the School of Rock Denver has a very friendly, comfortable & creative work environment. The staff & directors discuss ideas & consult with each other about the shows in progress. The directors make the most of the musical abilities of the students by making band practices fun, challenging, and rewarding.
The directors are able to harness and make the most of all that creative talent and energy!
The show themes are very cool; additionally, the school offers terrific venues for the house band to play in.
Speaking personally, the Denver School of Rock makes it worth our time and money to drive in 73 miles from eastern Colorado, through crazy rush hour traffic (!), for the 3-4 hour band practice and voice lesson. We've been so impressed by the level of musicianship of the students and that they are given more responsibilities as their abilities allow.
SOR is the most amazing place. I highly recommend it to any kid wanting to experience music. The community that comes with it is such an added Bonus. The Staff is so great. It’s a place where my kid can be creative and have fun while learning so much at the same time.
We love that your programs are not just about the rock. You expect responsibility, consideration for others and kindness out of your students. These skills, values and life lessons are more important than the ability to play an instrument and it's these lessons that will benefit the kids for the rest of their lives.
What our family likes the most, is that we get an opportunity to meet other families that have children that are passionate about music. The kids grow and aren't held back from what they love and there is so much room for them to continue to grow as a musician. Many fun opportunities and the kids can become friends, that has the same like-mindedness.
