Enrollment has started for our summer/fall performance season!

Performance Program - School of Rock’s Flagship Program - is a unique combination of private and group lessons which offers students the opportunity to apply every concept they learn in their private lesson into a real rock n roll setting; essentially connecting the dots from the practice room, to full band rehearsals, and finally up to the stage at some of Chicago's best rock clubs! Our students have performed at Lincoln Hall, Double Door, Schubas, & The Empty Bottle, among countless other amazing venues. Each season, we offer a variety of amazing performance group themes (i.e. the music of Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, The Beatles, HeavyMetal, etc… ) from which students are able to select their group. Click HERE for some photos of our past performances! Tuition for this program is $334/month and includes a weekly 45 minute private lesson as well as a weekly group rehearsal that runs 2 hours and 15 minutes. You would be billed on a recurring monthly basis and you could cancel anytime during the current month for the following month. However, we ask that once you commit to a season, you stay until the final performance.

And now, for our themes!


Mondays, 5:15pm to 6:45pm

Folks nowadays think of Lollapalooza as the annual blowout in Chicago's Grant Park.  But in the 90's, Lolla was a traveling showcase of some of the best alt and grunge acts from around the world!  This show will pull heavily from Lolla's past, and might include a few more modern artists for good measure!

Lilith Fair

Tuesdays, 3:45pm to 5:15pm

Founded by singer Sarah McLachlan in the late 90's,  Lilith Fair was a female-focused festival of girlpower that shook the industry to it's core!  This show will focus on all the folk, rock, soul, pop, and more that all these talented female and female-identying artists toured the world with! 


Wednesdays, 6:45pm to 8:15pm

The original, and for many still the best, mega festival happened on a farm in upstate New York in the late 60's!  An epic meeting of some of the biggest acts in classic rock, this show is gonna give the respect that such titanic talents deserve.


Thursdays, 6:45pm to 8:15pm

The 2000's brough a new major American festival onto the stage!  Coming out of the sunny California desert, Coachelle is a celebration of the best in pop, indie, and so much more!
