“We are very excited to have Paul Green's School of Rock as part of Music Player Live!,” said Valerie Pippin, MPL!’s Events Director. “The School of Rock is one of the most exciting and original concepts for getting kids involved in music in years. Their participation in Music Player Live! provides an excellent opportunity for kids and parents to have a wonderful music experience that will stay with them for a long time.”
Paul Green’s School of Rock has played over 350 concerts to more than 100,000 people in the past seven years, including shows in Philadelphia, New York City, San Francisco, and a premiere spot at the Zappanale festival in Bad Doberan, Germany, where they received standing ovations from legions of Zappa fans. The seminars at MPL! will include a discussion on gender dynamics in music education, a talk on why the School of Rock method works for young musicians, and a seminar about life on the road hosted by Ween’s drummer, Claude Coleman.
MPL! attendees will also be able to enjoy two special concerts from former School of Rock members, Atlas and Flamingo. “I am most excited about showing off the best thing about our program, which is our students,” explains Paul Green when asked about his involvement in Music Player Live!.
MusicPlayer Live! is a thrilling, totally over-the-top extravaganza for anyone interested in making music. To ensure that all levels of interest are thoroughly covered, the event is multi-layered and multi-faceted. MPL! offers a chance to hang with stars, professional musicians, and the people who make the hardware (guitars, basses, keyboards, drums, etc.) and software (recording programs, effects plug-ins, etc.) that helps translate inspiration into music. MPL! is set to take place in New York City’s Crowne Plaza Times Square October 21-23.
