Rock the stage this summer

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.

ONE HIT WONDERS

AGES 10-13 | THURSDAYS, 6:30PM-8:30PM

Rock and Roll history is littered with bands who never followed up on the promise of their biggest, and only, hit song. No matter what decade their brief stardom originated in, these One Hit Wonders have been mostly relegated to bargain bins and trivia contests. But their great songs live on! This super fun show celebrates all those songs from the 60s through the 2000s that you know by heart - even if you can’t remember the names of the bands who actually recorded them!

Listen to: Epic by Faith No More, 500 Miles by The Proclaimers, No Rain by Blind Mellon, 867-5309/Jenny by Tommy Tutone, Lovefool by The Cardigans; Eye of the Tiger by Survivor, etc. See Less

**NEW** BEST OF THE 80'S - ADULT PROGRAM

AGES 18+ | MONDAYS, 7:30P-9:30P AT SCHOOL OF ROCK SYOSSET/OYSTER BAY

On paper, the 1980's sounds like a really weird period for music, since it's often characterized by both the rise in popularity of using the synthesizer in recordings, and the increased use of distortion and the abuse of whammy bars. This decade brought us the rise of dance music, new wave, soft rock, glam metal, thrash metal and shred guitar. This show promises to be a lot of fun, with exposure to different styles of music.

Listen to: Guns 'n Roses, The Police, Tears for Fears, Survivor, Cyndi Lauper, Prince, Madonna, Pat Benatar, Europe, The Bangles, DEVO, The Cars, etc.

Rehearsals for our Adult Program/Grad School take place at SCHOOL OF ROCK SYOSSET/OYSTER BAY, 180 Michael Drive, Syosset. While the rehearsal takes place at Syosset, you are welcome to take lessons at our Huntington, Rockville Centre, Roslyn or Syosset/Oyster Bay locations!
