School of Rock, the leader in performance-based education, announces its latest collaboration with iHeartMedia to bring five original School of Rock playlists to millions of listeners via the iHeartRadio app. The slate of new hand-curated playlists, entitled “School of Rock Collection,” are comprised of songs from all eras of rock and alternative music, organized into the following: Alt/Punk/New Wave, Classic Rock, Funk and R&B, Metal and Hard Rock, and Modern Rock. Listeners can enjoy these playlists beginning today exclusively on iHeartRadio.
School of Rock provides students of all ages an exciting and engaging music lesson experience, which includes guitar lessons, singing lessons and piano lessons. Drawing from all styles of rock and roll, School of Rock students learn theory and techniques via songs from legendary artists such as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and Frank Zappa. Thanks to the school’s performance-based approach, students around the world have gained superior musical proficiency, with some moving on to record deals and larger platforms such as "American Idol," "The Voice" and Broadway.
“School of Rock’s curriculum is grounded in teaching music through influential popular songs,” says Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock. “This new partnership will allow us to extend the School of Rock experience to the iHeartRadio community by putting a spotlight on how rock n’ roll has evolved from its inception to today.”
The “School of Rock Collection” spotlights feature shows and songs that are culturally and historically significant to the history of rock music and contemporary western music from the last several decades. This collection also demonstrates fundamental and foundational musical concepts and techniques that are used in conjunction with School of Rock’s proprietary curriculum.
