Rock 101 Rehearsal

Show Weekend Date:

Please reserve the weekend of June 15th for the collective Spring 2019 performances. Exact times and venue to be determined mid-season. Details will be shared in coming months regarding performance date information.

Show Registration Fee:

This $50 fee will be processed at some point before June 16 to cover venue costs, show program, and a collectible commemorative dog tag.

Spring Schedule:

We have no scheduled closings for the Spring Season with exception of Monday May 27th for Memorial Day holiday. If you intend to be out of town and unavailable for rehearsals during the Feb and April breaks, please notify is so we can plan and staff accordingly. We aim to have at least 4 private lessons and 4 rehearsals per month.

Rehearsal Absences (missed, late arrival, early departure):

Please note the above rehearsal dates with holiday closings. If your child will be arriving late, leaving early, or missing a rehearsal, please email our staff at least three days in advance. This helps our Show Directors run their rehearsals efficiently. Please note that excessive missed rehearsals will result in fewer songs overall, or may result in songs being recast. Remember that for every song your child is cast on, there are several more kids on the same song. It is simply not fair to the other kids to continually have to postpone running that song.

Casting Songs: Your child will be cast on 1-2 songs to start and they should be aware of the material they have been assigned to learn in lessons. Song casting is always posted for staff and instructors to reference in the school. Students are expected to show up at their rehearsals prepared and showing progress, and should be working on their songs at home and with their instructors. Show Directors will cast a student on additional songs only when they have their initial songs down. If a student is continually unprepared on a certain song, and the Show Director has talked to the student and the student’s instructor about the song to make sure it is in his/her ability to play, the Show Director reserves the right to cast another student on the song.

What does your student need for rehearsals? We encourage students to protect their ears and bring their own ear plugs (we do have disposable ones in-house but cannot always guarantee availability). Guitar/bass students are also required to bring their own labeled guitar tuners, guitar cables and picks. Drummers should have their own sticks. Singers should bring their own lyrics. A refillable water bottle is also suggested.

Students are also expected to purchase their own sheet music for assigned songs. Instructors will help with directing students to the correct materials for purchase in private lessons.

For musicians who only need a few charts each year, you can also purchase individual titles. Simply visit https://sheetmusicdirect.com, find the song or part you want, purchase it, then print it. And don’t forget to use our exclusive coupon code SOR15 at checkout for 15% off, just for School of Rock students and families.

Presence in the rehearsal room is required throughout rehearsals, learning the material is just as important as playing the material. Casting changes can be made at any time during rehearsal. If you are not in the room, you will miss opportunity to be cast on new songs. In an effort to increase student engagement in rehearsals, cell phones will be collected at the beginning of every rehearsal and returned upon dismissal. If you need to contact your student in the event of an emergency, please call 914-777-1500.

Discipline: Maintaining respectful behavior and student safety is strictly enforced in SoR Rock 101 Class. We have a three (3) strike rule and it as follows: 1) Time out for 5 minutes in rehearsal room 2) Child is excused from class and sits with manager for 5 minutes 3) Child personally calls emergency contact to pick them up from the school while child sits with manager.

Reporting Progress: We will be providing progress reports which will assess grasp of chosen instrument and/or identifying a practice plan. We have a check-list of instrument learning criteria connected with Rock 101 graduation. If parents have any questions about this, we encourage and welcome scheduling a meeting to review in person.
