Philly SOR is great. Super atmosphere that lets kids be kids, but also learn to be serious musicians. My daughter has been at SOR for 3 years, and it was a great respite after her 2 years of classical lessons, which were great until she got totally bored with the music itself. The model of performance rock is one that is perfect for kids who want to DO it. Manager Craig Waxman and Music Director Noelle Hoover just make the place a wonderful environment for not only music learning and appreciation, but fun, craziness, and serious performance.
Achievement At All Levels
At the Philadelphia School of Rock, all of our students are encouraged to reach a high level of achievement, grow as artists and become leaders in their community. Whether they are just starting in Rock 101 or are in their local house band, our students will be comfortable in our system. While our music programs are delivered with a team dynamic, each student is provided individual private music instruction that ensures that he or she will continue to advance on their own personal musical journey.
Our unique casting process ensures the integration of various skill levels and promotes mentorship and leadership in our more advanced players. For our very best students who work hard and show dedication, there is an annual nationwide audition process. The accepted students are rewarded through the AllStar Program with amazing performance and touring opportunities all around the country.
