Celebrating 10 Years of Rocking Middle School

“Rock and roll isn’t a career or a hobby — it’s a life force. It’s something essential,” said the Edge, the guitarist for the band U2.

For thousands of kids in the Germantown area, the essential life force has been emanating from a very unlikely place for the last 10 years — there middle school, specifically from a music teacher, Randi Levy who is a life force all her own.

The Rock Band class and curriculum at Roberto Clemente Middle School, which allows students study the history and culture of popular music, master drums, guitar, bass, and keys and perform the hits of each decade in rock bands at no extra charge, celebrated its 10 year anniversary in grand style on Thursday night. Hundreds of parents, school administrators, students, and former students gathered for a night of music and memories at the Bethesda Blues & Jazz Club in Bethesda.
