School of Rock to Open in Redondo

Blog, Community News, South Bay Living, South Redondo Beach News
Started as an after school program in Philadelphia in 2002 and popularized with a Jack Black movie of the same name, the School of Rock aims to teach music by helping kids learn how to play classical rock songs on a variety of instruments. The South Bay School of Rock is currently in the process of renovating an existing medical building by converting exam rooms into lesson and rehearsal rooms. The school will host its grand opening on April 13 and will feature lesson discounts and giveaways for those who attend.  What differentiates the school is rather than traditional methods that teach you European classical music that would be heard in a nursery school in Europe, the whole idea is to teach kids to perform rock songs. And not only teaches kids how to play their respective instruments—it also teaches them teamwork by placing them into bands with other children.
