School of Rock invites established artists to interact and/or perform with our students nationwide. Participating artists have performed with our students at high profile venues and have participated in interactive small group clinics at our local schools. Topics and structure of these events can include Q&A sessions, Meet & Greets, instructional clinics on stage presence and songwriting. This unique program allows artists to not only gain exposure, but to mentor the next generation of hopeful young musicians.

Vinny recently played with the Boulder and Denver House Bands at Film on the Rocks at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Read all about it right here.
Here's what Vinny had to say about his experience with School of Rock:
"I didn't know what to expect when I first arrived at the SOR in Boulder. It turned out to be a special and memorable event that will last a lifetime. The experience of the music, energy, attitude and drive of the students (some so young) blew me away. Combine that with the pro staff and teachers and you have MAGIC! The School Does Rock!!" ~ VA
