SUMMER ROCKIN'!
HELLO SCHOOL OF ROCK ASHBURN COMMUNITY!!!
Though the weather may be hot, in here, it's always cool. Here's a bit of what's keeping the groove going strong!
We're Rockin' DOAH FEST!!!!


We are so pumped to be a featured artist again at Doah Fest 2017!  If you don't know about Doah Fest you should!  It's a great local music festival and camping experience right on the banks of the Shennandoah (get it Doah) River.  Great music, a lazy refreshing river, yoga, art and "vibe".  We will be hitting the stage FRIDAY JULY 7th 6:15 to 7:30PM.  
We would love to have you come out and support and enjoy a wonderful day or weekend at Doah with us.

Our Last Day of School Showcase  was Sooooo Good!
Wow.  We are still basking in the glow of this amazing evening!  Thanks to the many folks who contributed to our success and to Mother Nature who made it a perfect June evening for us.  

And it has to be said that our Ashburn musicians really put on a FANTASTIC performance.  We are very proud of all who stepped up and brought the rock to Ashburn.


Definitely a night to remember for sure - let's do it again!
Youth Fest 2017 - Kudos to our SOR Students Who ROCKED!
Super proud of the three bands and almost 20 kids that participated in this year's Loudoun Youthfest. Stone Cold even left with a fan favorite award but we can't choose - they all ROCKED it!  Our kids are a force to be reckoned with!



If It's Summer, It's TOUR TIME!  
We Rocked with our friends from Australia and Minnesota!
We had an absolute BLAST hosting a tour stop for our sister schools' Liberty Tour 2017!  40 School of rockers from Sydney Australia and Eden Prairie MN hit the downtown Silver Spring Fountain Stage for four straight hours along side a mash up band from our three DC area schools.  Check out this fun video of from the day!
Schools of Rock Bucks County and Downingtown PA Coming to Jammin' Java
It's a ton of fun to host our sister schools when they come through town!  On Wednesday, July 5th, our friends from PA will be stopping to jam with us at Jammin Java.  12:30 to 4:30PM.  It's a rare FREE show at JJ and everyone is invited!  Hope to see you there!
