JUST like the movie, Perth now has its very own ‘School of Rock’.
The Jolimont-based business opened its doors recently, with the official opening attended by Subiaco Mayor Heather Henderson.
Owner Dom Loiacono said School of Rock was an international company that had 180 schools around the world.
“We have just opened the most exciting music education school and program for kids (and adults),” he said.
“This is going to be an amazing opportunity for kids in the area who have an interest in music and want to develop and mature by gaining confidence and networking with their peers.”
Mr Loiacono said students learnt music by actually playing music.
“We take students from the lesson room to the stage, which develops their confidence and musicianship with programs designed for all skill levels,” he said.
“Our kids will be performing regular live shows to a paying audience, which skyrockets their musicianship and confidence.”
School of Rock (Worldwide) has had affiliations with some very prominent musicians as mentors, such as Mark Schulman (drummer for Pink), Eva Gardner (bass player for Pink), Kiss and Jack Black.
