Going into February, we're excited to welcome another new School of Rock instructor!

Rob Lane

Guitar/Vocals Instructor

Rob has been playing Solo Acoustic music in and around the Chicagoland Northwest Suburbs for the last 20 years. For the last 10 years he has fronted the Beatles Acoustic Tribute band, Liverpool Acoustic. But the last 20 years is by no means the beginning of his vocal music experience. Starting in Jr. High School, (year and date omitted for aging reasons) Rob has an extensive amount of performing experience. Ranging form Barber Shop Quartet, Madrigal Singers, Musicals, and many Coral Groups, he has developed a strong stage presence. He brings his musical abilities and his 30+ years of arts teaching experience to the School Of Rock Elmhurst.  He specializes in popular music, as well as classic rock!  He has a love for fleshing out melody and harmony, and emphasizes the importance of vocal health in all his lessons!  Rob can’t wait to rock out with you!

 

February is Black History Month!

Rock and Roll music would not be anything close to what it is today without the Black Rock and Roll pioneers who helped shape the genre.

We're opening a new Rock 101 session!

This weekly Rock 101 session will meet on Thursdays from 5:15pm-6:45pm, starting on February 10th! If you know someone who may want to enroll in this new session, please give us a call to let us know!

 

Our 2022 Summer Camps are still on sale!

If you've attended summer camps before, you can look forward to coming back this upcoming Summer for another camp experience. If you haven't tried a camp before, try one out for a fun-filled week of music! Summer camps also make a great holiday gift for any young rocker you know--whether they're a seasoned drummer or a beginner guitarist, we have a camp that's right for them!

We're almost at the end of the winter season now... happy Valentine's Day later this month, and we hope to see you at some of our rockin' events coming up!
