Long Island School of Rock Students to Perform at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland on Tuesday July 2nd

Long Island School of Rock Students to Perform at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland on Tuesday July 2nd

Young Musicians from the Rockville Centre and Huntington Locations will Embark on a Tour of venues in Ohio, Washington DC, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey from July 1-7 2019

Rockville Centre, NY  and Huntington, NY– School of Rock is fostering the next generation of great artists and redefining music education. Through a unique performance-based approach, students are guided from the lesson room to the stage where they play real shows at authentic venues with their peers. School of Rock’s collaborative environment inspires students to learn and excel and instills a confidence they carry with them for the rest of their lives.

On July 1st thru July 7th 2019, several young artists from the Rockville Centre and Huntington schools will be given their first taste of what the rock star touring life is all about. The forward thinking and creative owner of these two School of Rock locations has set up a string of shows in Cleveland, DC, Berwyn, Wildwood and Easton.  The tour is offered for their audition scholarship team – the house band who are carefully selected after an extensive audition process.  

The Performance Program is School of Rock’s hallmark music program, where tens of thousands of students enroll each year. It consists of a weekly private lesson and a group rehearsal where kids between the ages of 7 and 19 learn by playing rock music’s most iconic songs with a band composed of their peers. Students are assigned songs and parts that are tailored to them based on their age, experience, and ability to learn new skills and concepts. Students then work through their parts in weekly private music lessons, and refine the skills and concepts that those songs introduce. The goal of this curriculum is to prepare kids and teens for live performances. Every few months, Performance Program students take the stage and play at music venues in Manhattan, Long Island and/or Brooklyn.

Monica Rubin, the owner of both the Rockville Centre and Huntington locations came from a musical family but to hear her tell it, she wasn’t much of a musician herself. When her son Michael became interested in playing the guitar at a young age, Monica and her husband Gene encouraged their son to play; but quickly realized that taking lessons just wasn’t enough. Coming home and practicing on his own wasn’t fun. Like many people, she turned to a Google search to help them solve the problem. 

She recalled; “I asked Google what we could do to help our child find other kids to play music with and Google replied ‘School of Rock’. I was in disbelief. Google had made a mistake! We all know that School of Rock was a movie, how would that help my child? What I didn’t know was that the movie resulted from an actual school. THE SCHOOL OF ROCK! We quickly scheduled an appointment thinking this was all just too good to be true. I had no idea that Google had not only changed my son’s life, but the life of my entire family!”

Monica has been the brainchild and the workhorse behind setting up the tour, as well as the thought leader for the many other unique and interesting initiatives that are in place year round – including previous performance dates for students at The Bitter End in New York City where they expertly performed everything from AC/DC, Aerosmith VS Guns N Roses, Brit Rock, 90’s Rock, Maiden vs Priest, NY State of Mind and Deep Purple.

The instructors at both locations hold impressive music degrees and are active touring musicians.  Many are from well known New York bands The Inoculated Canaries, Craving Strange, In Loving Memory, Ellis-Ashbrook, the list goes on.

Monica continued, “We started our School of Rock knowing that it would change the lives of those who walked through our doors just like it had for our son. Our school is a clubhouse for our students – their home away from home. They have a place to express themselves musically and are challenged by the incredible teachers that are here and are encouraged by the colorful and comfortable setting that they are able to learn in.  Together, we are family. The School of Rock Rockville Centre, Huntington and soon to be Syosset-Oyster Bay family!”. 

It is her passion for the program but more importantly for the students that sets her schools apart.  “It’s all about the culture,” Monica says, ” I want my kids to know that they can be themselves here and that we help them gain the confidence to rock on stage and in life.”
