School Of Rock is giving their students the chance to play during the inaugural Knotfest At Sea concert cruise.
In conjunction with concert cruise promotor Sixthman and Modern Drummer magazine, the global music education program will give a handful of students the opportunity to play multiple times during the four-day festival. Modern Drummer will also be featuring these students in their print and online magazines in addition to other prizes.
Said School of Rock CEO Rob Price in a statement:
“As the leading music education company in the world, School of Rock is always seeking to provide the most aspirational experiences for students. We have afforded our students the opportunity to play on some of the biggest stages – on land and now at sea. This partnership with Sixthman and Modern Drummer fuels our mission to enrich lives through music.”
Adds Sixthman CEO Anthony Diaz:
“This collaboration with School of Rock supports our mission to tear down walls between fans and bands by creating immersive community-inspired vacation experiences. We are so impressed by the level of talent, passion and commitment we’ve seen in the School of Rock students and couldn’t be more honored to provide a new unique opportunity for them to unleash their creativity and further their musical talents.”
Modern Drummer publisher David Frangioni comments:
“The opportunity to continue collaborating with Sixthman, offering their guests incredible once-in-a-lifetime experiences now combined with School of Rock is a true sign of the power of collaboration, how we can collectively inspire, educate and evolve the music education system for aspiring musicians.
