Swede dreams are made of these

This week on Santa Barbara’s School of Rock we embark on an overseas journey to Scandinavia, and a two-hour ‘Rock It Properly’ lesson, on the music of Sweden.

We’ll listen to tunes from the likes of ABBA, Blue Swede, The Hives, The (International) Noise Conspiracy, Icona Pop and Yngwie Malmsteen; Nordic Pop, Dance, Hip Hop, Hard Rock… and a whole lot more.

Get ready to Rock Out!”

“Rock It Properly” airs on Sundays in the Winter from 8-10pm PST.
