At some point, almost every kid dreams of becoming a rock star and living a glamorous life of fame, fortune and power. And music really is powerful. Research has shown that playing a musical instrument helps kids do better in school and relieves stress. Plus, creating music is just plain fun. The folks at Boise Rock School know this, and they've been teaching music to young 'uns since 2008.
Boise Rock School offers all kinds of programs that teach kids how to rock--everything from after-school programs to summer camps to private lessons. Kids who participate in these programs form their own bands and give performances at venues like the Linen Building and the Knitting Factory. But learning to rock doesn't only mean a kid can become a real-life guitar hero--he or she will also learn social skills, like cooperation and teamwork.
Boise Rock School's musical mission has proven popular with an increasing number of students and its founders decided it's time to expand and get thrashing in a swank, brand new studio on Idaho Street.
To break in the new location, Boise Rock School is hosting a grand opening, featuring a live concert by students. The music is the main attraction, but there will also be a raffle, food and beer available with ID. Get down to the new studio and listen to some amazing kids as they show off their super-sweet shredding skills.
