School of Rock Lafayette Keeps Rocking With Launch of Remote Learning Program

Lafayette, LA – School of Rock, the leader in performance-based music education, has launched virtual, one-on-one music lessons for its 40,000 students around the world through its School of Rock Remote program. The program is in response to the growing number of citizens being asked to remain in their homes or limit travel.

Students will use video conferencing to meet with their skilled music instructor. The new virtual lesson room coupled with School of Rock’s proprietary Method App™, SongFirst™ approach and Method Books™ will offer a comprehensive music learning experience that is fun, educational and safe.

“At School of Rock, the health and safety of our students is our top priority, which is why we have rapidly adapted our operations in order to meet students’ needs,” said Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock. “School of Rock Remote along with our School of Rock Method App is a fantastic way to provide continuity and connection. Our instructors are gigging musicians, and they have shown their flexibility to make sure the music goes on.”

“We are thrilled to offer students the ability to further their music education from wherever they are,” says Scott Feehan, Owner of School of Rock Lafayette. “School of Rock Remote allows us to provide the same level of instruction that we’re known for, but in a way that prioritizes health and safety.”

Additionally, Hal Leonard, the world’s largest print music publisher of performance and instructional material, has partnered with School of Rock to provide students a free 60-day pass to SheetMusicDirect.com, a nearly endless library of notation in virtually every genre, including rock. Sheet Music Direct PASS is the world’s leading digital sheet music subscription service.

We are grateful to continue to connect with our community of students through School of Rock Remote™. In partnership with the Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide (sptsusa.org), we are connecting with artists to make a difference in the lives of our students through guest artist workshops, live Q&A, contest, and more! Some of our past artist partners have included Alice Cooper, Eddie Vedder, Slash, PhilX(Bon Jovi), Frank Zummo(Sum 41), Chad Smith(Red Hot Chili Peppers) just to name a few.  The Artist Sessions series is available to EVERY student enrolled in School of Rock at no additional cost.
