The School of Rock: Taking it to the Stage

May 7, 2013

The School of Rock in Mason is founded on the principle that the best way to learn music is to play music.

The faculty of The School of Rock is associated with several notable Cincinnati bands such as The Rusty Griswolds, Wussy, Fairmount Girls and Afghan Whigs.  They take students of all ages from the lesson room to the stage by developing their confidence and musicianship with programs designed for all skill levels.

I met with Tim Garry, owner and General Manager and Chris Barlow, Bass Instructor and Show Director from The School of Rock.

The school also offers a number of Rock Summer Camps that include:

  • British Invasion
  • Hard Rock
  • Pop Rock
  • Songwriting and Recording

Upcoming performances from The School of Rock include:

The Who
Friday, May 10 at The School of Rock Sonic Boom Room
Saturday, May 11 at The Redmoor in Mt. Lookout

Get Your Groove On
Saturday, May 18 at The School of Rock Sonic Boom Room
Sunday, May 19 at The Southgate House Revival in Newport

Also - look for the School of Rock House Band to perform at this year's PNC Summer Music Series on Fountain Square.
