School of Rock is where young singers and aspiring vocalists go to learn the fundamentals of singing like breathing, posture and diction. These basic principles are key to strong vocal performances. Our expert voice teachers help guide beginner singers through the early stages of vocal progression, assisting with pitch training, developing timbre and keeping steady tempo. Unlike most singing lessons, when students enroll in our programs, they can expect both weekly private singing lessons and group rehearsals. At School of Rock, our core philosophy is that the best way for students to gain musical proficiency is through performance-based music education. All of our lessons programs include a performance aspect.
School of Rock's intermediate to advanced vocal lessons offer professional voice training and singing lessons that will help practicing students reach their highest potential. Our expert vocal instructors focus on advanced singing techniques to add to a student's existing vocal repertoire. Every program at School of Rock includes private singing lessons paired with full-band group rehearsals and live performances, all designed to lift students to a higher vocal level.
School of Rock has a finely-tuned program called Little Wing that captures the attention of preschoolers, helps them discover their voice, and sets them on a path towards musical proficiency. Through playful exploration of rhythm, song structure, and melody, preschoolers are introduced singing and other instruments.
We make singing lessons for kids fun and engaging. Private voice lessons, group rehearsals and live performances help children learn how to sing in a comfortable atmosphere, no matter what skill level they're at vocally. Expert voice instructors teach the basics like staying in-key, breathing and diction and advanced techniques like timbre and intonation. Based on age and skill level, kids join at least one of School of Rock's music programs for kids: Rookies, Rock 101, Performance, House Band, and AllStars.
This program famously turns teens into extremely skilled singers. Vocal students learn how to sing effectively through private voice lessons, group rehearsals under the supervision of our expert instructors, and eventually live performances. Singers improve through vocal training, proper warm ups, and useful microphone techniques as they prepare to perform live on stage. All teens are enrolled in or audition for one of the following programs: Rock 101, Performance, House Band, and AllStars.
Students in School of Rock's Adult Program (18-years-old and up) learn scales, how to keep tempo, and how to stay on-key as well as more advanced vocal techniques like voice sustainability. Vocalists hone their skills by learning how to sing popular rock songs in private singing lessons for adults, group rehearsals, and full band sessions. With expert training from our professional vocal coaches and the support of their band, singers lead up to live performances on stage.
Depending on the program, School of Rock's singing lessons can cost from around $150 to $350 or more per month. Exact prices may vary between locations. Unlike most hourly singing lessons, our programs include weekly private singing lessons and group rehearsals that inspire confidence and teamwork. Vocal students are also welcome to use our facilities whenever we're open, even if they just want to hang out and learn from or collaborate with other musicians.
Many 4-year-olds love to sing, but they likely lack the focus for formal voice lessons. However, it's not too early to begin teaching your child musical concepts that will be important once they are old enough for singing instruction at School of Rock. Your 4-year-old can participate in the Little Wing music program to learn fundamental concepts through fun, dynamic musical activities.Little Wing
Practice is key, whether you are learning an instrument or developing a young voice. With steady practice and a good attitude, our singing lessons for kids can have your child singing with confidence in as little as 6 months. Some students reach the level of advanced singers in as few as 3-5 years, but results do vary from student to student.
One way to get your child to practice singing more is to inspire them every day. Start practices off with small increments of time, and, as their skill level builds, gradually increase the time spent practicing.
The bottom line is that it's not the songs you practice, but just that you or your kid spends time learning to sing. To see the best results, our singing instructors recommend that students spend at least 30 minutes practicing to sing every day.
At School of Rock, we teach private singing lessons in conjunction with weekly band rehearsals meant to build confidence and teamwork. While we do offer private singing instruction, we strongly encourage students to play in band rehearsals as a way of exploring group dynamics, and get the chance to find out what it's like to sing lead vocals for a rock band.
Singing can be a surprisingly straining physical activity. A quick vocal warm-up can keep your voice healthy and make you sound great. We also recommend that you properly hydrate and refrain from smoking.Resource: Best Vocal Warm-Ups
If your child loves to sing, you probably knew it before they could talk. With persistence and motivation, some kids have learned to sing and perform at impressively young ages, but what it really comes down to is the individual attitude and maturity level of the student.
