The snow is falling, the presents are under the tree, and the menorah is lit. But we have our eyes fixed on warmer weather! That’s why we’re excited to announce our next Sunburst Rocks Season: “Countdown to Summer” (a tribute to the Bonnaroo Music Festival).
The Bonnaroo music festival is held deep in the hills of Manchester, TN and has been attracting over 73,300 concertgoers since its creation in 2002. So why did we choose this theme for our spring season? This time around we wanted something that included a wide range of artists for our students to choose from, and that’s what this festival has–something for everyone.
Starting as a jam and folk event, with it’s roots in the Monteray and Woodstock festivals of the 60’s, Bonnaroo has grown into a genre defying mashup of pop culture. U2, Mumford and Sons, Stevie Wonder, The Black Keys, Bob Dylan, Radiohead, Tom Petty, Beastie Boys, Phish, Tool, D’Angelo, Metallica and Jay Z are just a few of the eclectic artists that have played the main stage over the years.
How do you know if your young rocker is a fit for main stage? That’s a question we get asked often. If you’re a guitarist playing open or power chords, a drummer that can play along to songs, a pianist that knows chords, or a singer that can hold a tune, then you’re the perfect fit!
Playing music with other people is one of the best ways to grow as a musician, and it’s the most fun! Ask your instructor if you’re ready for Sunburst Rocks Main Stage or Emerging Artists and try a free 1st session along with half off your 1st month when you sign up this January.

Sunburst Rocks Emerging Artists (ages 8-10) runs Thursdays 5-6:30pm and Saturdays 11:30am-1pm
