Yes, the School of Rock is real, and it’s right here in Baltimore. This after-school program for kids and teens is offering up a unique kind of music education that goes beyond theory.
Students here are learning how to be in a band and market themselves as musicians. They even get to participate in shows with themes like “The 70s” and “The British Invasion”, which they get to perform at local clubs.
Many young musicians at the School of Rock have been taking lessons since they were kids, and are using the skills they’ve learned to pursue musical careers.
They say they love making music to express their feelings and opinions. But, this program isn’t just for those who have been making music all their lives. Anyone who wants to learn how to rock is welcome.
