Corporate Rock: Get out your lighters, bust out that bandanna, and get ready to sing along to all your favorite guilty pleasure arena rock jams. Fleetwood Mac, Boston, Foreigner, and Elton John are just of the few artists featured in this show. Huge riffs, wailing solos, endless chorus chants and a cheesy toe tappin' good time are promised to all who are lucky enough to witness this spectacle of fist pumping ecstasy. Come and watch as students tackle oldies but goodies from the big rock radio archive, even if you just want to behold the greatest performance of "Eye of the Tiger" ever produced by mortals, buy a ticket NOW.

About the School:

We proceed from the belief that the best way to learn to do almost anything is by doing it. And, we feel that this is particularly true about learning to play music.Our goals at the Paul Green School of Rock Music are: to help our students realize their potential as artists, to put them on stage in front of as many people as possible and to help foster a new generation of incredible musicians. Founded in 1998 by Paul Green, the Rochester and St. Clair Shores school are part of network of over 40 schools of rock across the country.

Each year across the country students play over 500 concerts to more than 200,000 people, at such legendary venues as CBGB's, The Trocadero, Cafe DuNord, The Knitting Factory, Cervantes Ballroom and BB Kings in Times Square. We are always looking for grander stages to put our students on, and to date our students have played Lollapalooza and other festivals from California to Germany, opened for national acts coast to coast and performed live on television and radio countless times.

Student ages range from 8 to 18 years old and their collective experience ranges from beginner to advanced. Every four months our student body puts on performances based on shows hand selected by our staff to showcase different styles and further challenge students abilities and technique. Both Rochester and St. Clair Shores branches have had the pleasure of performing at the crofoot and the very first set of shows ever performed (The Beatles and a complete performance of Pink Floyd's The Wall) were in the Pike Room.
