School of Rock, the leader in performance-based music education inspiring the world to rock on stage and in life, will be celebrating the grand opening of its newest location on Saturday, April 26, 2014 at 2515 East Piedmont Road in Marietta. The innovative music school is inviting community members to find out what School of Rock is all about. Festivities will include a guitar smashing ceremony, live performances, trial lessons, guided tours, refreshments, giveaways and more. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet the staff, including business owner Adam Lavinsky, a 28-year-old Berklee College of Music graduate who is currently the drummer for Asheville, NC band, “Ryan Sheffield and the HighHills”. School of Rock East Cobb will also be hosting an open house on Sunday, April 27, 2014 from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. and every Saturday throughout the month of May.
School of Rock is an ingenious concept that gets kids and adults rocking out to the classics and on stage performing with their peers. Music programs are designed to create a supportive environment where music students of all skill levels are comfortable yet challenged at every turn. In addition to individual private music instruction on guitar, bass, vocals, keyboards and drums, students also learn how to jam with their peers in a weekly rehearsal session. The team dynamic creates a supportive and motivating environment where kids feel inspired to excel.
School of Rock programs are performance-based and emphasize the message that music is not just about playing an instrument; it’s about teamwork, building confidence, and creating leaders. The unique programs include “Rock 101”, which teaches basic skills to beginners, the “Performance Program,” the second stage and heart and soul of School of Rock, and an “Adult Program.” The school also offers an enriching program designed for first and second grade rockers called the “Rookies” program, and a pre-school program called “Little Wing,” designed to introduce toddlers to the joy of music. After about twelve weeks of one-on-one lessons and structured group rehearsals, the students of “Performance Program” transform into rock stars in a blowout concert in front of a real live audience.
