We will be doing a spring preview/ student open mic show tentatively about the time the snow should be melted. Songwriters you’ve been warned!
Rumor also has it that one of our SoR families is soon to open a music venue- restaurant in Downtown AA soon- stay tuned for details!
Did we mention the adults?
Yes, Thursday night is bulging at the seams. Need a little inexpensive therapy? Putting a little music in your life can be a very healthy distractionand point of balance for working adults. Think about it.
Shopping for instruments?
Did you know that School of Rock has partnered with Fender, Hal Leonard and Chicago Music Exchange to offer students the ability to buy instruments through the school? Brands include- Fender, Squier, Gretsch as well as Gretsch drums and Samson accessories. We are also a dealer for Ernie Ball and we keep a stockpile of straps, cables and the strings most common on hand- maybe even less expensive than the music stores! If this is something you are interested in, ask!
Yes the first ever SoRAA two sided youth shirts are available at the front desk with the School of Rock Logo on the front and the wicked AA logo on the back.
Did you know that all the songs your student is working on are on Spotify? It’s true, Rock 101, Performance and Adults and it does not require a paid
account for access.
