Rock 101

At School of Rock, kids just starting out will learn the fundamentals of playing a musical instrument in a fun and interactive group environment.


Rock 101 students will master the basics while playing actual rock music, before jumping into live shows. Songs in Rock 101 are chosen to highlight the skills needed to build a strong foundation on a respective student’s musical instrument.

For example, a beginning guitar player needs to learn power chord shapes, so we have picked a few Ramones songs that use these forms as a basis to introduce the concept.

Our Rock 101 music program includes:

  • Learning the basics of technique and music theory

  • Understanding the dynamic of playing in a group

  • A weekly private music lesson on guitar, bass guitar, keyboard, drums, and / or vocals

  • A weekly group band rehearsal
