School of Rock Allstars
Each year School of Rock’s most talented students (approximately top 2%) from our nationwide network of schools audition to become part of our highly coveted Allstars Program. An Allstar is an exemplary student who shows not only great musical skill, but who is also a positive role model and mentor to others.The selection process takes place amongst thousands of students, and if chosen, the student will have the opportunity to tour with the best young musicians in the country on some of the most prominent stages.
At one time there are five tours running consecutively throughout the US with 125 students stopping for 30 dates, playing on some of the most prominent stages in the country, including Gathering of the Vibes! We host the tour to provide our students with a truly unique experience and to create a level of inspiration that lasts a lifetime.
The Allstars have shared the stage with Jon Anderson of Yes, Perry Farrell, Slash, Eddie Vedder, Alice Cooper, Dee Snider, Joe Lynn Turner and Brendan Small, to name a few.
“School of Rock is honored to be involved with one of the most amazing music festivals on the summer circuit,” said Mark Biondi, School of Rock, Director of Product Development and Allstars. “The opportunity to have our students watch, listen and learn from the masters while sharing the gift of music with the Vibes audience is something these kids will never forget. We can’t wait to see the magic they’ll be creating together.”
Each year, as part of the tour, we look to provide inspiration beyond the music. Our purpose is to elevate our students not only to enjoy great musical experience but an opportunity to give back and inspire other kids.It is an unbelievably powerful teaching tool and offers incredible moments for a young musician. It is also a tremendous opportunity for an established artist to give back and mentor the next generation of hopeful young artists. We have seen kids transformed by this experience.
