Students at Charlotte’s School of Rock location partnered up with Jack Black, who starred in the “School of Rock” movie, for a soundcheck at a recent concert.

Black and his bandmate Kyle Gas, who together make up Tenacious D, played for the students on June 26 at the Fillmore before Tenacious D’s show. The students then attended a meet-and-greet with the band after the show, where they had their albums signed and chatted with Black and Gas.

School of Rock locations give students opportunities to meet industry professionals as well as perform at venues and festivals around the city. Find more information on the school at its website, www.schoolofrock.com.
