What You'll Get
At the behest of a black obelisk, the first rocker banged two stones together and hooted. Take the second step toward rock ‘n’ roll with today's Groupon: for $59, kids ages 7 to 18 get one month of rockstruction (up to a $275 value) from the School of Rock's Sandy campus. Choose a month of performance-geared lessons or jam-inspired courses. This deal is good for new students and soon-to-be guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, and vocal heroes only.
With the private, personal instruction from experienced musicians, kids will soon be shaking the walls and integrating British slang into their vocabulary. In the Performance Program (a $275 value), budding musicians learn the fundamentals of playing an instrument during a weekly 45-minute private lesson as well as one weekly group rehearsal. At the end of the season, students have the opportunity to perform at a rock venue (past student performances have included Pink Floyd's The Wall, AC/DC, Best of the '80s, and Devo). The All Access Membership Program (a $180 value) offers a 30-minute weekly lesson along with a one-hour weekly jam session and two tickets to each of the school's seasonal shows. In this program, students are free to focus on what they want to learn, whether it be perfecting a favorite rock song or practicing improvisation skills. Enrollment is rolling and based on seasons.
With the banking industry in shambles, secure your child's financial future by setting them on a practical path toward a successful career in the rocking arts. Once children master the proper jamming, improvising, and hotel-room-trashing techniques, the velvet ropes to a glamorous rock 'n’ roll lifestyle will swing open, and a life of world-traveling, catering trays filled with cold cuts and crudités, and storming out of radio interviews and the dentist's office when asked about their personal life will become a reality.
Students are asked to bring their own guitar, bass, or drumsticks; drums and keyboards are provided at the school.
