School of Rock San Antonio: In person lessons for guitar, bass guitar, drums, vocals and keyboards
School of Rock San Antonio

 

School of Rock Performance-Based Music Programs Rock Socializing— With Social Distancing

Kids have been inspired in the School of Rock community for the last 8 and half years, learning music by playing music– together. Through programs designed for all skill levels, students go from lessons and rehearsal to performance– developing confidence, talent and teamwork skills along the way. Students, ages 7 to 18 engage in a private, one-on-one lesson. Those weekly lessons come with a bonus: the chance to be a rock star. Once enrolled, students become part of a band as well, and play in a socially distanced rehearsal each week. Bands are determined by skill level and age. They practice together for a season (about 4 months) and then play a show. This unique approach allows students to use what they learn from their teacher in the real-world setting of a band, comprised of their peers. They learn to rock on stage and in life.

School of Rock community members also have access to our one-of-a-kind, fully integrated Method app. The App provides an enhanced learning experience and reinforced practice schedule. Parents and students know what should be worked on and progress can be tracked.

Programs—Something For All Ages

Rookies

Ages 5-7. Fun musical activities and hands-on experience with guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and singing, so they can discover which instrument interests them most.

Rock 101

Ages 7-12. Your budding rock star applies music fundamentals learned in their private lessons to playing in a band. Rock 101 is a fun, low stress environment where basics are mastered while playing songs with other kids.

Junior Performance

Ages 9-12.  Upon completing Rock 101, your young rocker learns harmonies, musicianship and much more about performing as a band.

Performance

Ages 12-18. For beginner to advanced players. With several show themes each season, your team will excel from one level to the next– all while playing music they love.

Rock 101, Junior Performance and Performance Programs include a weekly private lesson and weekly band rehearsals.

Wild Wednesdays! at Spring Lake
Spring Lake Regional Park

Too many screens? Does your 7-11 year old student need to get outside and explore? Wild Wednesdays! is a four-week science, literacy, and art program designed to connect your student to their local park while they practice being a scientist and discovering the world around them. Each day of the session will be focused on a central theme students will answer through hands-on nature exploration, observation, measurement, writing exercises, craft projects, and team-building games. All activities will be added into a nature journal students will take home on the last day.

Wild Wednesdays! is being delivered in compliance with the Center for Disease Control camp guidelines as well as current County of Sonoma health orders. We are limiting Wild Wednesdays numbers to just twelve students for each 4-week session. We are also implementing enhanced cleaning processes, personally assigned "nature exploration kits", and other protocol recommended to promote the well-being of our students and staff. Students will be asked to bring and wear a mask, bring their own full water bottles, lunch and snacks, and social distance during our activities. Students' temperatures will be taken upon drop off each week. Families will be provided a full list of steps we are taking as well as drop off and pick up procedures.

Wild Wednesdays! will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for four consecutive Wednesdays at Spring Lake, Foothill, Ragle Ranch, and Taylor Mountain Regional Parks. Families are asked to sign up for one session as the sessions repeat. The cost is $180 per camper, per session and registration is required.
