Inspiration

That's the word that comes to my mind looking at this share from +Sean Cowen​. The ability of music to inspire continues to astound me. Maybe it doesn't inspire you to paint but music can inspire in a number of ways: To take a relationship to the next level, quit a job to pursue the career you always wanted, start getting back into shape, start a new project. Whatever it may be, never doubt the power of music to #inspire

Art of Music

The work of Dan Elijah G. Fajardo, on Society 6, and vividly reminds us that music has that ability to "paint images" in our heads, and it let's our minds roam free, dreaming up new canvasses...

Because that's kind of awesome

Clearly this puppeteer knows his way around a drum set! Watch this puppet play Rush's song 'Tom Sawyer' like a true drummer. Even a puppet can outplay me on the drums!

Found via Twitter
Ricky Syers is both an incredible puppeteer and, as this video demonstrates, a damn good drummer as well. He also manages to nail a classic Rush song with half as many drums as Neil Peart.

Who else is touring this Spring/Summer?

+Louise Goffin​ is sharing updates of her #tour with Butch Norton and it got me wondering whether all you other musicians out there are hitting the road! Our #SORAllStars will be doing their tour at the end of the summer to hit music festivals like Gathering of the Vibes and Lollapalooza.

So #shareatour with me! Who's touring this year? Or is there a touring musician you're dying to see live?
 
So fun to play at The Union County Performing Arts Center in Rahway, NewJersey
with Butch Norton #louisegoffin #tour #spring #appleonfire

"We're not going to say, 'This is how you play an A minor pentatonic scale. We're going to say, 'Play Led Zeppelin. Oh by the way, this solo that Jimmy Page is ripping, that is how you play an A minor pentatonic scale. Go home and practice that.'"

+Steve DeNola of +School of Rock Somerville helped to explain how focusing on the music to teach music theory really works at SOR. But at SOR it's not only about being a great musician, as Denise Biondi of +School of Rock East Brunswick explained:

"We brings kids together who have a passion for music, and they have a place to go... By forming a band, they learn life skills, such as team building, self-confidence and presenting themselves in front of people. They're learning life skills in addition to music. That's the culture I'm building at my school. They learn to be amazing musicians, but they also are learning to become a great person too. That's our philosophy: Inspiring the world to rock on stage and in life."

Take the leap to continue reading about how and why the SOR approach to music education works!
 
School of Rock doing it the right way
We all know the importance of music on kids and why we play a huge part in how they learn and enjoy.  Great article on our methodolgy from Courier News featuring +School of Rock East Brunswick and +School of Rock Somerville .   #musicmonday  *sorsomerville 
More and more Central Jersey music schools are impacting students swiftly by initially focusing on their favorite rock songs rather than difficult-to-learn theory that is incorporated later.

A guest instructor visits SOR Seattle!

Next Sunday Jean-Paul Gaster of Clutch will be visiting and talking to +School of Rock Seattle​ students! I imagine Gaster has a lot of music biz insights for our students, with Clutch having released 10 studio albums and performed countless world tours. I can only imagine the stories!! The great thing about bringing in professional musicians to talk to the kids is they have the cool stories but within those stories are both music AND life lessons that the kids remember forever. #learningmoments

If you could have a conversation with a professional musician, what would you ask?
 
School of Rock Seattle welcomes Jean Paul Gaster of Clutch!  

Join us next Sunday, April 26th, at 4:00pm for a conversation with Jean-Paul Gaster of Clutch. Since their formation in 1991, Clutch has released 10 studio albums and performed countless world tours. Blending a variety of styles from Hard Rock and Metal to Old Americana and Blues. Clutch has created a sound that is both unique and timeless.

This is open to School of Rock students only. Check your email for the RSVP.

To celebrate Bryan Adams this #Sundayfunday

I thought why not share +School of Rock Main Line​​ kids playing one of the songs on the album that hit the UK album chart on this day in 1985 and that was one of six singles that made it to the top 15 on the US Billboard Hot 100. I think it'd be nice for Bryan to know that his songs have been and will continue to be played for generations to come. And we'll always remember the Summer of '69 ;D

I love Dave Grohl and the Fighters. I have seen them once and they are coming back to Memphis again this fall and I hope to catch them again.  Easily top 5 concert out of all 200+ shows I have seen of all kinds of bands over the last 20 years.

It's finally here: #RecordStoreDay !!!

Today is the day we celebrate those vintage shops that continue UE to provide us with all of our vinyl needs. If you aren't one to listen to vinyl, judging by the story below you'll at least be making an investment ;D
Latest research has revealed that increases in vinyl sales show no sign of slowing down.
