School of Rock Vienna will be CLOSED TUESDAY, JULY 4TH, in observance of the Independence Day Holiday! We will be OPEN MONDAY, JULY 3RD & WEDNESDAY, JULY 5TH, for all regularly scheduled lessons and classes.

This holiday closure is built into the tuition fee schedule, and therefore make-up lessons will not be required.

We hope you all have a fun, relaxing, and safe Independence Day!

Thanks, Brian

Good news! The water is back on and we will be open for all Summer Camps, Lessons, and classes on Tuesday, June 27th, at our normal.time!


Hi Vienna Parents!

Unfortunately we have had a major plumbing issue and will need to turn off the water for the remainder of the day, and will therefore need to reschedule all of today's lessons. The emergency plumbers will be arriving at some point, so we hope to be back in business tomorrow.

Brian will reach out to all affected students/parents directly. But is your student does have a lesson or class today, please kindly let us know that you have received this message.

Thanks so much!!

School of Rock Vienna will be opening on-time today for lessons and classes! We will keep monitoring the weather throughout the day, in case the situation changes. So stay warm, stay tuned, and let's Rock!!



Looks like there might be some cold, snowy weather tomorrow morning. So here's a quick reminder regarding out Inclement Weather Close/Open Procedures:

We do not follow the county school or government closures. Frequently they make decisions in the morning based on whether or not the buses can maneuver through the neighborhoods. We make our decision to open/hold in-person lessons or groups based on whether or not our staff can safely come to work. Once we have that, we will announce our "Open In Person" or "We're Going Online" status on inclement weather weekend days by 8:00AM, by sending you an email, posting on our main SOR Vienna page and in our BAND groups.

And if you cannot make it safely to the school for your lesson, please call or email the school to let us know.

So be sure to check your inbox and social media prior to heading out. And stay safe & warm out there!!



School of Rock Vienna will be open normal hours today, Presidents Day, Monday, February 20th, for all regularly scheduled Lessons, Rookies, and Rock 101 classes. There are no Performance Program Rehearsals this week. Our Spring Season kicks off NEXT Monday, February 27th! If you are unable to attend your lessons or classes, please contact Brian at the front desk.

Thanks and have a Wonderful Presidents Day Holiday!
