School of Rock Charlotte Introducing New Artist Development Program This Fall

This fall the School of Rock will launch three new Artist Development
programs in the Charlotte area designed for musicians who want to take
their playing to the next level. Band Coaching, Project Studio, and
Epic Albums, are designed to give intermediate to advanced students of
all ages the opportunity to enhance their performance skills, broaden
their creativity in the studio, and further develop their musical
knowledge and skills. "Our students possess the talent and desire to
be in their own bands, get in the studio and write their own music"
said Mark Biondi, VP of Product Development. "It is our goal to
provide a nurturing environment to help foster the next generation of
great artists."

-BAND COACHING gives bands an edge through coached rehearsal sessions
with a professional musician, focusing on the development of their
live show and how to tighten up their sound. Bands receive musical
guidance, constructive feedback and assistance with getting gigs. Band
Coaching features a weekly 90-minute rehearsal for bands who want to
improve the quality of their performances. Follow the Twitter hashtag:

features a weekly private music lesson and 90-minute pre-production

recording in a studio environment. This program will give students an
opportunity to collaborate, write and record original music. Project
