"Wanna Be A Rock Star?"

"Wanna Be A Rock Star?"

This past weekend, my 13 and 11 year old kids, both guitar player and drummer, performed in a Van Halen concert (our 4th), at a local pub with their friends from the 'School of Rock'... it was a blast for everyone, not just the proud parents... Some of these kids are mega-talented at such a young age too.

 A real stage, real lights, real sound, ... a performance based school founded in 1998, by Paul Green, with over 50 schools across the country.  Each week your child has a private lesson and a 2-3 hour rehearsal, ending in a weekend of 2 concerts.  Then the 'Best of Season' takes place in Manhattan with a few songs from each of the schools in the Tri-State area performing in one giant concert.
Last January one of the themes was 'Southern Rock'...  on 'YouTube' you can see them perform the song "La Grange"... Enjoy, let me know what you think, and have a great weekend!
