Ten years ago music teacher Randi Levy created a free Rock Band class and curriculum where students study the history and culture of popular music, master drums, guitar, bass, and keys and perform the hits of each decade in rock bands all for free in school! This intensive three-year course of study includes performing at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio!
Clemente Middle School’s Rock Band Class has grown from one class to five full classes a day churning out hundreds of rockers over the last decade, many whom continue to create, produce, and perform beyond their middle school years. Without this free opportunity in school so many children would never have the access “pay to play” rock camps and private music lessons provide. Clemente Music Rocks! keeps music education equitable by making it freely available to all students so that every child can succeed on every type of instrument!

This benefit concert brings together Clemente alumni from across the country for a one-night performance and celebration! All proceeds will be donated to support the children at Hope & Bright Future School in the Soweto slum of Nairobi, Kenya.
