The versatile choices of music you teach. I also feel that it is also more student lead which makes the kids enjoy it more. Very different when I learned as a child. The option to play with others is a great opportunity for my son to meet others who have common interest in music. I want music to be important to him and I think this helps. Of course the instructors are very hip and my son loves that!
I love how the program is organized. I didn’t own a bass a year and a half ago. And now I’m on my third show playing music I never thought I would be capable of. The other upside is the people. Music brings people together that would normally never had any reason to get together.
My nine year-old son has not only learned how to play the drums at SoR New Canaan, but he has also gained tremendous confidence and improved self-esteem. Learning to work cooperatively with his band mates and making new friends during the Rock 101 program has been phenomenal for him as well. Every single teacher he has come across has been nothing less than helpful, educated, kind and professional. I have recommended SoR New Canaan to at least a dozen people already and my son is already talking about the next instrument he wants to learn to play!
My son loves every minute of his experience with School of Rock. It has been incredibly motivating and enriching for him to learn how to play music in a band. The teachers are fantastic, so caring and professional, and the performance blew us away! We look forward to more School of Rock for years to come.
Overall I think the programs are good. I'm not super happy though with rehearsals lasting 3 hours each Monday, this seems an unnecessarily big time commitment for my daughter who is a high school senior, especially as a lot of the time seems to get wasted.
I love the way music is taught here. I’m learning the songs I need to know and filling in all the musical gaps in knowledge along the way. I’m amazed how much I’ve learned in such a short period of time.
