IRON MAIDEN Drummer To Visit 'School Of Rock' In Coral Springs

IRON MAIDEN drummer Nicko McBrain will take part in a meet-and-greet at the Coral Springs, Florida location of School Of Rock on Thursday, November 8 between 7:45 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.. The young music students of School of Rock are presently in rehearsals for a "tribute to IRON MAIDEN" show and are looking forward to some first-hand advice from Nicko himself.

"Nicko is awesome for volunteering his time to mentor the kids," says School Of Rock Coral Springs Music Director Andrew Musselman. "This is an opportunity that the kids will never forget."

"Our house band has been working on a cover of IRON MAIDEN's 'Aces High'," says Christian Davis, Music Director at the School Of Rock West Broward. "It would be amazing if they got to rehearse it with Nicko."

The performance-based music school, has decided to open their doors to the public for this one night, so that other kids in the community can meet Nicko and better understand the importance of music education. In lieu of an admission fee, School Of Rock will be accepting optional donations to the Rock School Fund. This fund will provide instruments and scholarship funding to cover tuition expenses based on a student's financial need combined with their desire to actively and passionately participate in a rock school program.
