MySchoolROCKS founders Anthony Kolozetti and Cliff Callaway were thrilled to be live on the air at NewsTalk 1010 The Weekend Show with Dave Trafford. Cliff and Anthony touched upon the key elements of the MySchoolROCKS program and how it connects with the timely subject of youth mental health.
"Young people will not only love our studio when they come in, they will learn new things about their creative selves...its about being in the moment, playing along with popular songs and truly having a musical experience".
Our sincere thanks to the fine professionals at CFRB 1010 and Dave Trafford for inviting us to appear on the morning show.

"Music sends signals to the brain to aid in the expression of emotions, manage stress, enhance memory, and improve communication. Once we are aware of how music affects us, we can start to intentionally select it to better support our mental well-being and self-care". In addition to these cognitive connections, the positive vibe generated by music can energize the tone of your classroom and school!
Housed in our fully equipped studio, MySchoolROCKS teaches popular/ modern songs using innovative instructional methods reflecting best practices in Progressive Music Education.
Participants learn valuable skills that promote co-operation, team building and conflict resolution. Our 45 minute ROCKSHOP sessions touch upon youth friendly strategies for positive mental health.
Our Instrument Carousel Program is divided into 4 specific instructional sessions: Guitar, Keyboards, Drums and Vocals. Participants rotate through each 45 minute activity and will be playing along with popular/ modern songs.
Participants will learn 3 easy guitar chords and will be playing along with Bruno Mars and The Black Eyed Peas songs by the end of the carousel session!
Our innovative keyboard instruction combines visual graphics with hands on music learning. As the session builds on skills, participants will be playing along with Adele, Drake and others!
Participants will learn the fundamentals of drumming and will be able to play along with almost any song on the radio!
Using popular songs, participants are introduced to vocal techniques such as beat boxing and karaoke. This session will also cover the craft of song writing. MySchoolROCKS models song writing skills that can be used to create your own school anthem!
Utilizing best practices in Respect Ed, Social Emotional Learning and youth mental wellness, MySchoolROCKS encourages participants to make the cognitive connection between learning music and developing a growth mindset focusing on mindfulness, resilience and responsible risk taking.
