Rock and Roll University is a music school in Hauppauge, NY offering private lessons and band performance programs for all ages and skill levels. Our music programs provide a supportive and encouraging environment where children of all skill levels can gain the confidence and skills to perform at their fullest potential
Our private lessons include training with percussion, brass, woodwinds, strings, & vocals. Students that participate in Rock and Roll University’s five month Semester Band Performance Program will have the opportunity to perform on stage in front of a live audience at a concert venue in the community!
All lessons are with an experienced instructor. Strings, percussion, vocal, & wind instruments welcomed.
RNRU provides instruction to people of all abilities & skill levels. Great for those participating in self direction.
Just wanted to thank you for such a great job all of you do and we are so happy to be a part of a great thing!!! All the kids are outstanding and talented. Looking foward to the spring performance!!!
We so rarely hear compliments during the regular work week. I thought I’d share some really nice words from Derek Placente’s mom. Not only was she thrilled with the solo recital, she loves the way the school is run.
She knows that she could go somewhere closer to home, but chooses to continue here. Specifically because she watches how Bill handles the kids (before and during rehearsals) and wants her son to have the opportunity to be a part of this school.
These kids are just too much!!! We totally owe their new friendships with their bandmates, and their exciting rock and roll lifestyle to RNRU, for sure. Wouldn’t have met the Niederauers if my buddy Sly didn’t BEG me to take my kids over there and check it out. Sly was on my case for months to go over and meet Bill and sign the kids out. I finally listened to him and for once he was right. haha! just joking.
My kids for damn sure wouldn’t be playing their instruments in front of other human beings if the Friday Night program didn’t exist. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the program…and to be honest, I appreciate it more for the confidence it gave my kids than anything else.
Sure they can play. I have talented kids, no doubt about it. But without the confidence to play with others and play in front of a crowd and the courage to make mistakes, they would just be playing in the basement, being talented with no one listening, and too afraid to come out and play. I’ve said it to whoever will listen, RNRU has been life changing for my kids. Thanks so much.
I just wanted to drop a quick note to say thank you to you all of you and acknowledge Therese.
Monique has been with you guys since June. Everyone, including the students have been wonderful to her and embraced her. She looks forward to Mondays and has a blast every week all of the Directors as well.
What I am most impressed with is how she has bonded with Therese. She not only takes her out of her comfort zone and pushes her to be a better performer, she is has also become a trusted advisor and friend. I have never seen such a bond form or such improvement in a relatively short period of time. Her self-esteem has improved tremendously and she has remained humble, what a nice combination! My family and I very grateful for Therese. We are so happy they were paired together and Monique absolutely loves everything about Therese!
Usually, you may get issues or complaints from parents. You deal with our kids and their issues for 2-3 hours a day several days a week and that is not easy in any way. Thank you very much for all that you and I can’t thank you enough for Therese!!
