We believe the best way to learn music is to play music. We take students from the lesson room to the stage, developing both their confidence and musicianship with programs designed for all skill levels.
School of Rock teaches guitar, bass, vocals, keyboards, drums and combines weekly private music lessons and group band rehearsals to prepare students to take the stage in front of live audiences in an authentic concert setting.
To date our students have played thousands of concerts, to more than 100,000 people, at such legendary venues as CBGB's, The Trocadero, The Knitting Factory, The Whiskey, The Roxy, The Experience Music Project, The Big Easy and BB King's Blues Club in Times Square. We have also had the great fortune to be able to perform at music festivals from Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits, to Zappanale in Bad Doberan, Germany.
Our music programs are designed to create an environment where students of all skill levels are comfortable while at the same time being challenged.
At the Bentonville/Rogers School of Rock, all of our students are encouraged to reach a high level of achievement, grow as artists and become leaders in their community. Whether they are just starting in Rock 101 or are in their local house band, our students will be comfortable in our system. While our music programs are delivered with a team dynamic, each student is provided individual private music instruction that ensures that he or she will continue to advance on their own personal musical journey.
Our unique casting process ensures the integration of various skill levels and promotes mentorship and leadership in our more advanced players. For our very best students who work hard and show dedication, there is an annual nationwide audition process. The accepted students are rewarded through the AllStar Program with amazing performance and touring opportunities all around the country.
