The very finest in modern, Indie rock, Arcade Fire won a 2011 Grammy with their debut album! We'll pull from all their atmospheric and spectacular records to channel this band's incredible energy in our performance. Arcade Fire loves to play an array of strange instruments on tour as well, so come prepared to make some strange and beautiful noise!
Since January, School of Rock Charlotte students have been rehearsing the songs of Arcade Fire in preparation for this show. We hope to see you there!
We believe the best way to learn music is to play music. We take students from the lesson room to the stage, developing both their confidence and musicianship with programs designed for all skill levels.
School of Rock teaches guitar, bass, vocals, keyboards, drums and combines weekly private music lessons and group band rehearsals to prepare students to take the stage in front of live audiences in an authentic concert setting.
To date our students have played thousands of concerts, to more than 100,000 people, at such legendary venues as The Fillmore Charlotte, Visulite Theatre, Neighborhood Theatre, Amos' Southend, The Double Door Inn & The Chop Shop. We have also had the great fortune to perform at music festivals such as Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and Gathering of the Vibes.
Our performance-based teaching method is an immersive experience that inspires our students to be their best. We get our students playing music as quickly as possible because we know that that is what our students want to do. As a result our students become more interested in the theory of music.
We deliver an authentic experience using professional equipment, a staff of seasoned musicians and performances on real rock stages, at real rock venues in front of real live audiences.
Our instructors live to play and play to live. They are experienced professional musicians that can instruct students on the finer points of their instrument, while at the same time educating them on everything that goes into putting on a great live show.
We teach and perform music that our students love to play and our audiences love to hear. From the fundamental roots of rock and roll through classic rock, funk, reggae, heavy metal, alternative, indie and prog rock - we share, engage and celebrate it all.
