“School of Rock has been a great community for these kids. It is an alternative to extracurricular activities that a lot of these kids can really fit into where they might feel out of place in other arenas.”
Benefits Beyond Music
Students in the Portland School of Rock music program are learning how to play by jamming together with his or her fellow students. By taking the focus off the individual and creating a team dynamic, students enjoy a more supportive and motivating environment in which to learn.
As a result, kids feel more inspired to excel and to help their team to victory at the big show. More importantly, the team dynamic makes it fun to practice and allows kids to become more invested in the learning process.
