MONTCLAIR, NJ - School of Rock Montclair will begin rehearsals for its spring performance programs on February 4. Students will take part in weekly program rehearsals that will run through early June, and concert presentations of the programs will take place at local live music venues in mid June.
“Performance programs are the culmination of our students’ experience at School of Rock Montclair,” says Kevin March, General Manager. “We put on shows to teach music, and our students gain skills and confidence from the live shows of our performance programs that enhance every aspect of their lives.”
In each performance program, students work with their bandmates to learn the most popular and important songs of the artists who are being featured. Students also learn the intricacies of presenting these songs in front of a live audience.
