School of Rock and 20th Century Fox Film have gotten together to promote the new Queen biopic, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” in theaters November 2nd.
School of Rock and Fox recently hosted a once-in-a-lifetime press junket where entertainment writers interviewed the cast of "Bohemian Rhapsody" and also learned to play iconic Queen songs, taught by School of Rock staff and students. This press experience allowed writers to experience the thrill of performing Queen’s classic songs.
School of Rock will also incorporate Queen songs into its current curriculum across its more than 200 schools worldwide. Now more than 30,000 music students will be learning traditional music concepts through the performance of Queen hits such as ‘We Are The Champions,’ ‘Another One Bites the Dust’ and more.
“It’s a natural fit for School of Rock to partner with Bohemian Rhapsody,” says Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock. “Our revolutionary curriculum is designed to reinvent music lessons through learning and performing classic rock. Through School of Rock’s collaboration with this film we know the next generation of rock musicians will have a greater appreciation for the legacy of Queen’s music.”
