Eden Prairie School of Rock is the premier after school music education for kids. We specialize in teaching guitar, drums, piano, vocals, ukulele and bass guitar. Most of our students live in Eden Prairie, Minnetonka, Chanhassen, Plymouth, St Louis Park, Edina and Shakopee. But we also have students who come from as far away as Rogers to the north and New Prague to the south!
We offer a variety of music lesson programs, depending on a child's age and/or experience.
For Ages 5-6: We offer private ukulele lessons, Mommy & Me keyboard lessons and Rookies Band Lessons, so there's something for every child, from the student who wants to study individually to the child who isn't quite ready to leave mom's side to the extrovert who wants to star in a rock band!
For Ages 6-7:
The School of Rock Rookies program inspires first and second graders to pursue music by channeling their inner rock stars. Young rockers learn pitch, rhythm and musical teamwork through musical games and group rehearsal of simple rock songs. This hour-long program is entirely group based, so kids learn how to play in a band right from the start. The program Includes once a week group rehearsal where they will experience the magic of playing all of the major rock instruments: guitar, bass, keyboard/piano, drums, and vocals.
For 8+ Years Old:
Our program was founded in 1998 on the belief that taking music lessons and never playing a gig is like going to basketball practice every day and never playing a game. After a while, there's no point. So we combine private lessons and group rehearsals so your child learns to play the instrument of their choice and to work as a team within a band setting.
Once your child is comfortable playing with other students and has mastered the basics of the playing their instrument with the band s/he will graduate to the Performance Program. In Performance, your child will continue one-on-one lessons with a private music instructor and the group rehearsals prepare students to perform a live rock concert in a real rock venue. This is a real confidence booster (not to mention tons of fun!)
Advanced students may audition for additional programs including a monthly performance, a spot on the Road Crew (house band that performs frequently through the summer and occasionally through the school year), Summer Tour which includes performing in multiple cities over multiple dates, perform at Summerfest in Milwaukee as part of the annual School of Rock International Music Festival and the nationally acclaimed AllStars program which is comprised of the top 1.5% of School of Rock students from around the world.
For students who want to learn how to write songs, we offer a song writing curriculum. A song writing instructor will teach your child song structure, music composition, lyric writing and where to look for inspiration. This course is for ages 12-18 with a basic knowledge of piano or guitar.
We specialize in teaching children music lessons. To ensure the safety of our students, all of our instructors have participated in safety training and undergone a national background check. Unlike most music teachers who are Independent Contractors at the location they teach, School of Rock teachers are all employees who are held to our strict, international standards and are required to adhere our professionally developed curriculum.
