School of Rock Orangeburg
135 E. Erie Street, Blauvelt, NY
School of Rock is the largest music education company in the world. They teach tens of thousands of students each year around the globe. Their mission is to transform kids’ lives through music they love to play. They inspire and challenge their students to work hard and they provide the Classic Rock framework that makes it fun.
The conventional method of music instruction is that you must master musical concepts before you move on to play songs that actually inspire you. Their approach is different. You start by learning to play and perform the songs that inspire you and through that process you will develop mastery of music theory with the added benefit of knowing how to play with others.
This unique approach helps young musicians find themselves, hone their talents and build the confidence they need in their lives. School of Rock is a safe place for kids to learn, develop friendships, and carve out a niche for themselves in a world where they might never have felt a sense of belonging before.
At School of Rock Orangeburg, they teach Guitar, Bass, Drums, Keys, and Voice. Call them at 845-977-0275 to schedule your free trial lesson and tour of the school!
