School rocks Perth

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business - By MON­TANA ARDON

JUST like the movie, Perth now has its very own School of Rock.

The Jolimont-based busi­ness opened its doors re­cently.

Owner Dom Loia­cono said School of Rock was an in­ter­na­tional com­pany that had 180 schools around the world.

“We have just opened the most ex­cit­ing mu­sic ed­u­ca­tion school and pro­gram for kids and adults. This is go­ing to be an amaz­ing opportunity for kids in the area who have an in­ter­est in mu­sic and want to de­velop and ma­ture by gain­ing con­fi­dence and net­work­ing with their peers,” he said.

Mr Loia­cono said stu­dents learnt mu­sic by ac­tu­ally play­ing mu­sic.

“We take stu­dents from the les­son room to the stage, which de­vel­ops their con­fi­dence and mu­si­cian­ship with pro­grams de­signed for all skill lev­els,” he said.

“Our kids will be per­form­ing reg­u­lar live shows to a pay­ing au­di­ence, which sky­rock­ets their mu­si­cian­ship and con­fi­dence.”

School of Rock (World­wide) has had af­fil­i­a­tions with some very prom­i­nent mu­si­cians as men­tors, such as Mark Schul­man (drum­mer for Pink), Eva Gard­ner (bass player for Pink), Kiss and Jack Black.
