School of Rock Holds Grand Opening Tour

A new school in Rogers held its grand opening tour this weekend but, there's no history books or math books, it's for kids to jam out.

The first school of rock in the state of Arkansas is now open in Rogers. The schools mission is to inspire kids to rock on stage and in life. The open house this weekend allowed families to tour the facility and try out the equipment.

The school will feature weekly lessons and group rehearsals with their peers while their students gear up for live shows every four months.

“We do think that one on one lessons are important and we do incorporate those into our performance program but, we also think that being in a band, interacting with other people is a very important part of learning music," says Jenni Register, Manager.

All genres of rock will rule at the school of rock.
