Grammy-nominated heavy metal superstar visits School of Rock Doylestown


Randy Blythe, the lead vocalist/lyricist for the award-winning and multi-million selling heavy metal band “Lamb of God,” visited School of Rock Doylestown to lead an instructional workshop for 65 of the school’s young students.
Blythe performed a repertoire of “Lamb of God’s” songs, along with songs that were influential to his musical development, with members of School of Rock Doylestown’s House Band, which is comprised of the school’s most advanced students. During the dress rehearsal with the House Band, he taught the students how to do vocal warm-up exercises and offered them tips to improve their live performances. He also shared stories of how he got his start in music and his greatest career moments.
“It was an absolute pleasure to work with the kids at the School of Rock Doylestown,” said Blythe, who has performed at music festivals around the world with “Lamb of God.”
“The students were all well-rehearsed, super polite, and (most importantly) PRESENT while we were practicing for the evening’s performance. In this modern era of incessant technological distraction, to be around teenage kids who were 100% focused on expressing themselves in a creative manner and communicating with each other in the special way that only band members do made me so very happy.

“The students practiced very hard under the tutelage of competent instructors, because the songs we played were not easy. Once we hit the stage, they performed well. I had so much fun!
“I would recommend School of Rock Doylestown to any parents with kids who want to make music. Playing music with other people is about effective communication and focusing on a common goal. I’ve always said the world would be a much better place if everyone could be in a band just once in their lives, and that is exactly what the School of Rock Doylestown provides!”
“Lamb of God” was cited by the music news site Consequence as being one of the most important artists of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal. The band will be a headlining band on the Shiprocked Cruise in January.
