Rock and Roll Academy is a hands-on music program that emphasizes social emotional learning through a project based experience of playing in a band. There are no auditions and no previous music experience is required. Rock and Roll Academy students form bands, choose their own music, and self-direct their learning.

The kids comment that they feel welcome and that they do not judge each other. They are encouraged to take risks and try. They like being part of Rock and Roll Academy and it inspires them to get more involved in school.

I thoroughly enjoyed talking with Mark. You will hear us talk about his background and Rock and Roll Academy. We focus on how the program works and how the adults get involved.
