Kids Music Day went out with a bang at the School of Rock in Mokena on Friday, Oct. 4.

Drums, guitars, keyboards and vocal cords were turned up to the max as children jammed into the late hours of the night.

Each year, the School of Rock celebrates children having access to music instruction by holding a lock-in open to the public.

“The day is meant to bring awareness to music, the arts and things that aren’t being taught as much in schools as they used to be,” said Mokena resident Mark Doyle, owner of the School of Rock. “We try to get kids more involved with music.”
