BACK TO SCHOOL, BACK TO ROCKIN'
HELLO SCHOOL OF ROCK SILVER SPRING COMMUNITY!!!
And just like that, summer is over, school has begun and we are headed to our fall programs and shows! Check out what's been happening and what's coming this fall!
What a Summer!
We had a record number of summer campers head through our doors, up the stairs and ROCK! We are so proud of each and every camper who overcame their shyness, learned something new, were open to a song they had never heard before and then got on STAGE! It's truly a gift to see a young musician transform in one short week. Thanks to all and we hope to see you this fall rocking our year around programs!
Thank You Summer Interns!
Every summer we launch our Summer Intern Program and this year we had a STELLAR CREW of ROCK SOLID interns helping us keep things on track! THANKS TO Isabel, Oliver, Harry, Christian, Aaron, Emily, Claire, Lucas, and Julien.

You all ROOOOCK!!!
Here's to next summer!
