Musician in recording session

What to Expect

  • A live artist showcase in front of record executives
  • Record in a state-of-the-art major-label studio

The Center Stage Artist Search Program is an opportunity to be seen by a major record label. Singers ages 13-19 can submit an audition video as part of the selection process. Selected artists will have an opportunity to participate in a recording session, and perform in a live artist showcase with record label executives in Los Angeles. Additionally, we will provide 100 applicants with School of Rock songwriting camp scholarships. Submit your video audition today.



The music of legendary recording artists can be the primary inspiration behind many School of Rock students’ drive to pick up an instrument for the first time. We use these artists’ music as the foundation of our curriculum because it helps maintain young musician’s drive to gain musical proficiency. Center Stage is a program to help usher in the next generation of great artists that will one day inspire others to begin their musical journey.
