What Is The Rock and Roll Institute
Do you remember the movie "School of Rock" starring Jack Black?

Well, it is kind of like without all the rule-breaking. More specifically at the end, when Jack Black's character starts the after-school music program.
According to rocknrollinstitute.com,
"If so, you’re ready for our camp! Show up with your instrument on Monday and by Friday night you’ll be playing on-stage in a well-oiled, powerhouse of a rock n’ roll band. Start a band Monday, play a show Friday, indeed!"
How It Works
It is a daytime music camp at Keith School in Rockford for students in grades 6th through 12th. The classes are taught by some of the best musicians in our community. There are two week-long sessions. All levels of skill are invited to participate. Campers will form a band on Monday and play a show on Friday at the Sinnissippi Music Shell. Scholarships are available. For more info, HERE.
The Rock and Roll Institute Is Coming Back
Unfortunately, the Rock and Roll Institute camp had to be canceled the last two summers because of COVID. Well, there is light at the end of the tunnel. It will return for the summer of 2022. That is great news for the area kids interested in music.
