RAD GRADS!
 
It's that time of year when we have to say goodbye to our graduating seniors. Each of these students have contributed an astounding level of musicianship and leadership here at SOR Silver Spring.  We love you, thank you for being so awesome and send you off with our best wishes for the bright futures you each hold!  See you soon at an alum show!

Riley Howard- top right rocking the mic:  
I will miss this opportunity to be able to play in shows so easily. I just get to sign up and play! It's great! I will remember this time as a lot of growth in the past 4 years. Back when I was first here I used to get in trouble for evertyhing. But now, I feel like a leader being in House Band. I've been able to step it up in the last year and see the significant growth both as a human and musician. My advice I have for students is to learn all your materials so you're not 'THAT GUY' at rehearsal. I will be working all to pay for car insurance and attending Montgomery Community College Fall 2018.

I just recently experienced my first Sunday without House Band rehearsal in two and a half years and my entire day was thrown completely out of whack. My very last rehearsal with the school will be next week, and after that I cannot even begin to imagine the lostness I will feel. School of Rock, its students, teachers, and music have given me much more than I ever anticipated four years ago when I first signed up for voice lessons. Just as my voice has grown and come into its own through School of Rock, I feel I have too. I learned how work in a team, how to be a leader, how to put on a real show, and above all how to have a blast doing something I absolutely love. I hope that after I leave, School of Rock continues to change kids' lives, while also churning out spectacular shows (I will be back to see them!). As I move on to the next chapter of my life at the University of Vermont, I will keep all of my wonderful memories and everything I've learned close to heart because I know they will help me succeed not only in my further pursuit of music but also in my academic studies. I am forever grateful to SoR Silver Spring, thank you to all of the best friends, teachers, and mentors I've had the honor of getting to know throughout my time here.

Sean Wilson - bottom right: 
I will miss the friends I've made playing music with and the postive, constructive environment. I will remember my time with School of Rock as a period where I truly honed in on my musicianship. My advice for all and any new students, PRACTICE, don't worry everything takes time, and don't give up. Starting this summer I will be working to save up and attend Howard Community College. I'm look forward to being able to play my own music, meet more musicians on my own, and take the skills I've learned at School of Rock Silver Spring to the next stage of my life.
