Creating Community Through Traditional Dance and Music
Homespun Occasions and Homespun Community Dancing

Creating Community Through Traditional Dance and Music

Families and communities have provided for their own entertainment throughout history. This program of community dancing and music helps students to develop an awareness of what life was like before television, computers, and CD's, especially during the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries.

 

Peter Davis, Paul Rosenberg and George Wilson involve students in discussions about the role of homemade music and dance to celebrate weddings, historical events, community gatherings, and to make social commentary. Students are introduced to the origins, sounds and uses of folk instruments - including fiddle, banjo, mandolin, clarinet, pennywhistle, and guitar.

Workshops are chock-full of community–building activities that get everyone up and moving. By participating in community (folk, contra and square) dances and singing games, students experience a variety of styles and customs from different countries. These are living traditions influenced by various cultures over the centuries. Dances presented come from more than 50 countries in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Africa.

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.
