About Rock & Roll After School
A new brand of music school where students, ages 8 - 18 learn the values of hard work and teamwork while having fun building their own rock band. Unlike traditional music lessons, Rock & Roll After School is formatted more as a club where students come to socialize and practice with other students in addition to their own lessons and performances.

Students receive weekly 45 minute private music lessons on the rock instrument of the their choice. Instruction is offered in guitar, bass, keyboards, drums, DJing and voice. Students are also taught overall musicianship and music theory including songwriting and performance workshops.

Students can also perform in concerts scheduled throughout the year. Performances include a range of well known rock standards as well as current popular music selected by the students. Original works created by Rock & Roll After School students are featured in each performance.
