- The school runs on a basis similar to the one in the movie and is the first of its kind in Africa
Many South Africans may not be aware, but we have our very own school of rock – similar to the one featured in the Jack Black movie.
The School of Rock in Claremont operates in Cape Town and is the first of its kind on the continent.
There are 200 such schools around the world and their objectives are to develop a broad range of musical skills – from mastering the instruments to performing live.
The school places an emphasis on stage performances and students were performing at a gig at Tigers Milk in Muizenberg over the weekend.
During the performance, someone noticed the music had a powerful effect on a car guard patrolling an outside parking area.
The music moved him to such an extent that he felt compelled to start jiving.
The school shared the video via its Facebook page and included the caption: “Well this is the effect that School of Rock has on people!! Our Music Rocks the Nation!!!”
