The road to becoming a professional musician
The School of Rock and Pop has been educating professional musicians in the area of rock / pop and jazz for more than 20 years.
Before a band can finally make it on stage, there’s always the same problem: find the right band members, set up rehearsal rooms, compose songs, write lyrics, arrange own songs or cover versions … This is where the rock-pop school of SRF comes into play! With us, musicians can focus under professional and creative guidance on the real thing: making music. Whether classic blues or rock, whether soul, funk, heavy metal, hip hop or mainstream – the School of Rock fits each and every one into the right band.
- a band-oriented practice teaching program: Song material for easy entry, instruction on how to implement their own musical ideas, tips for the stage presentation, etc.
- Instrumental and vocal lessons, individually and in small groups, to songs that are rehearsed in the bands

- at least once a year, a workshop with a “celebrity ” from the music business
