Event Details

Learn about the guitar’s evolution from acoustic to electric as well as its influence on modern music. Experiment with the guitar and learn fundamentals like chords, rhythm, and song structure. We’ll listen to some of the most iconic guitar riffs and discover Texas guitarists who have made musical history, like Stevie Ray Vaughn, Glary Clark Jr., and Jackie Venson. Be prepared to learn and rock out! The program is best suited for ages 5-9. No musical experience is required. Inspiration for this program comes from the Bullock Museum's exhibition, Guitar: The Instrument That Rocked The World, and the Museum's Texas History Galleries.

About School of Rock

Twenty years of experience and hundreds of thousands of students have taught us that playing music with others results in stronger proficiency compared to conventional music education. Working toward and experiencing live performance is the core of our curriculum. Our students grow as individuals by taking the stage with others. While our students work with bandmates, they learn broader life skills like collaboration, compromise and courage.

We call this revolutionary approach to music education The School of Rock Method™. The School of Rock Method builds musical proficiency through our proprietary Method App, Method Book collection, SongFirst approach, and performance-based music curriculum. Our Method has been awarded a patent making our teaching system available nowhere else.

About Family Programs

Family programs provide educational and engaging activities for young Texans and their caregivers. Events are designed to bring families together, spark conversations and provide opportunities for growth and development.

At the Bullock Museum, programs have been a place for the community to gather and celebrate culture, explore new ideas, and share experiences together. During the COVID-19 pandemic, programs still provide an opportunity to bring the community together, even if we are apart. Please join us through virtual programs and enjoy lessons, discussions and activities with your family, friends and neighbors who are also participating from home.
