Midwest Rock Music Tour Features America's Most Talented Teen Musicians

From Bon Jovi to Metallica and Judas Priest to Led Zeppelin this rock cover concert has something for every rock music fan. A great first concert for kids. A terrific step back in time for parents. Family friendly with just enough edge to be cool.

 
PRLog - Jul. 1, 2009 - In two weeks, 25 of America’s most talented young rock musicians will hit the road for an old-fashioned, hard-core rock concert tour.  These young rockers represent the best musicians studying at seven of 55 branches of the Paul Green School of Rock Music in the United States.

The PAUL GREEN SCHOOL OF ROCK MUSIC was founded in 1998 on one simple ideal: The love of rock music in all its myriad forms has the power to transform young lives.

From that profound insight a true phenomenon has grown.

Today, the PAUL GREEN SCHOOL OF ROCK MUSIC operates more than 50 branches from New York City to Los Angeles, Miami FL to Salt Lake City UT and Austin TX to St. Paul MN, with many other choice locations in between. Expansion into nearly a dozen more major markets and their surrounding areas are on the immediate horizon.

In 2009, the PAUL GREEN SCHOOL OF ROCK MUSIC will perform over 1000 concerts nationwide, including performances in such prestigious venues as the House of Blues, the Knitting Factory, The Whiskey and Carnegie Hall and at festivals such as Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and more.  A respected force among professional musicians, the School of Rock boasts associations with a growing cadre of rock legends, including Ian Gillian of Deep Purple, Ann Wilson of Heart, Stewart Copeland of the Police, Jon Anderson of Yes, Marky Ramone of the Ramones, Adrian Belew and John Wetton of King Crimson, Alice Cooper and numerous members of Frank Zappa's classically grounded groups.

The 2009 Midwest All Star Tour includes
July 17      Frisco, Texas
July 18      Kansas City, Missouri
July 19      St. Paul, Minnesota
July 20      Chicago, Illinois
July 21      Detroit, Michigan
July 22      Cleveland, Ohio
July 23      Milwaukee, Wisconsin
July 24      St. Louis, Missouri
July 25      Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
July 26      Austin, Texas

A natural media magnet, the PAUL GREEN SCHOOL OF ROCK MUSIC has been featured in such broadcast, print and electronic outlets as the CBS Evening News, CNN, MTV's Total Request Live, NPR's Fresh Air, Rolling Stone, Spin, Guitar Player, Mojo, the U.K. Guardian, New York Times, Washington Post, and countless others. The institution was the subject of the critically acclaimed A&E documentary Rock School, with a soundtrack produced by Grammy winner Phil Nicolo (Bob Dylan, the Roots, Train). And Green and his programs are widely believed to have inspired the hit Jack Black film School of Rock.

It all began in Philadelphia, where Paul Green was teaching guitar at home and at local music stores to put himself through college. In doing so, he realized the most practical and purposeful application of learning rock guitar was being ignored in traditional music education - playing in rock's inherent surroundings. That was the beginnings. We have since spent the last ten years putting our students on the greatest stages in the country and raising the level of professionalism and expectations from playing a local venue to being a part of the market’s show band to auditioning for the national All Stars and the today’s ultimate honor is to be invited to perform in Paul Green’s personally directed band, travel internationally and perform next to and with world-renowned musicians. By continually challenging our students, we hope to instill in them an appreciation of hard work and love of music that will stay with them their entire lives.

The Paul Green School of Rock Music specializes in teaching kids, ages 7-18 years old, how to play guitar bass, drums, keys and vocals in a rock band environment, promote themselves as serious, dedicated musicians and entertain at the same level, or better, as their professional counterparts.
