ROCK U is a FUN way to boost your playing skills and get valuable on-stage experience!

Rock University is our group class that focuses on performing with a live Rock and Roll band. It allows students to take the practical knowledge and skills they get from our private lessons, and put them to a greater use. Each weekly band rehearsal lasts 3 hours, so the students can collaborate and rehearse with the goal of performing in two live concerts.

Our instructors coach and guide Rock U students as they rehearse for 4 months (16 rehearsals). Then, we produce two rock concerts in a theater, club, or outdoor facility with professional sound and lighting. The concerts are free for students’ family and friends to attend.

Why you should join Rock University?

  • Play in a band
  • Learn how to rehearse with a band
  • Make new friends
  • Play in a concert – Two concerts for each Rock U session
  • Opportunity to play another instrument
  • Gain confidence and ability to play with other musicians
  • Strong emphasis on fun
  • Values of self discipline – teamwork – dedication – knowledge – self confidence – hard-work – practice

Past Rock U shows have been held at World Café Live, Trocaderro, Carolina Blue, Vera’s in Cherry Hill, Grand Theater in Williamstown, House of Brews in Turnersville, Hi Nella Inn, Ott’s on the Green Bar & Grill in Sewell NJ, Riverwinds and Washington Township outdoor Amphitheaters, Racks Pub & Grill in Williamstown, NJ and other clubs throughout the area.

Benefits of joining Rock U

Get Started

Unequaled performance opportunities

School bands, orchestras, wind ensembles, and traditional chorus programs often provide little or no performance opportunities for electric guitar players, drum set players and pop singers. But at Old Towne Music, your child can perform on stage, in concert, and become more creative and confident while learning the value of working with others. It’s amazing to see the confidence level rise with every kid after only one show. We find shy kids coming out of their box, and kids who have been struggling with their instrument shine.

Dedicated coaching

Our brilliant teachers are incredibly positive and motivating. Students love their patience and dedication. Rock U students learn what it takes to play WITH other instruments, how to listen to each other, and what it takes to perform, all with the encouraging mentorship of an experienced teacher!

State-of-the-art equipment

We have everything you need for Rock University, including a sound system and microphones. We have a background in performance and sound, so we know what it takes!
