Performance Based Music Education

Our teaching method gets students performing

Traditional music education approaches rarely teach students how to perform with other musicians. The patented School of Rock Method is different. We combine one-on-one instruction with group rehearsals and live performances, teaching students how to play together as a band. Our version of recitals are real rock shows at real venues in front of live audiences. Each year, School of Rock puts on thousands of rock shows as part of our curriculum.

Our teaching method teaches students songs they love

School of Rock starts students on their lifelong musical journey by teaching the songs that inspire them. As part of the School of Rock Method, our SongFirst approach uses classic songs to teach technique and theory. This method helps students remain excited about their music education and eager to practice. For example, we may teach students how to play a classic rock guitar solo, and use it as the foundation for introducing scales and mechanics.

The Method App features exercises assigned by instructors, real-time interactive feedback, thousands of song transcriptions, and customizable song backing tracks that allow students to rehearse with other instruments.
