Forget Jack Black’s Hollywood version of the School of Rock. Asheville has the real thing. Under the leadership of Anne Coombs since 2007, the Asheville Rock Academy has been teaching aspiring teen guitarists, bassist, drummers, keyboardists and singers how to play various styles of rock as well as stagecraft.
The Asheville Rock Academy’s talented students have played some high profile gigs lately, including the main stage at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland last June. Academy bands have also played with Cliff Williams of AC/DC, bassist Victor Wooten and Roy Wooten of Bela Feck and the Flecktones fame, guitar shredder Joe Stump and American Idol’s Caleb Johnson. The future of rock is in good hand with these committed teen musicians and their dedicated teachers.
Join us at Altamont Theatre for a Rock Academy Summer Showcase and be treated to the best teen rock music in WNC! Come enjoy the best Rock Music, Asheville has to offer!
