The Performance Program is School of Rock's hallmark music program, where tens of thousands of students enroll each year. Utilizing the patented School of Rock Method, Performance Program consists of a weekly group rehearsal where kids and teens learn by playing rock music's most iconic songs with a band composed of their peers. Students are assigned songs and parts that are tailored to them based on their age, experience, and ability to learn new skills and concepts. Students then work through their parts in weekly private music lessons, and refine the skills and concepts that those songs introduce. The goal of this curriculum is to prepare kids and teens for live performances. Every few months, Performance Program students take the stage and play at local music venues in front of a live audience.

When you think hard rock, this should be the first band that comes to mind. AC/DC is arguably rock & roll’s LOUDEST bands!! It’s all about sick guitar riffs, thunderous bass lines, big drums and stratospheric vocals. Of course no one can deny that Jack Black was inspired by Angus Young in his Role for School of Rock the movie!
Listen to: Hell’s Bells, Back in Black, TNT, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, You Shook Me All Night Long, etc.
