The Paul Green Rock Academy (PGRA) is an advanced touring ensemble of young musicians between the ages of 14 and 20 who have been selected for their musical prowess, showmanship, love of performing, and ability to share the stage with professional musicians as they tour the world.
The students of Paul Green Rock Academy completed three 2022 Summer Tours as the backing band for Jon Anderson, lead singer of Yes, and for three tours with Gibby Haynes of Butthole Surfers. They have headlined the Meltasia Music Festival, performed at the Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice, and played countless sold out shows throughout the United States.
In 2023 they are touring Europe with Jon Anderson, including a stop at the legendary festival Zappanale, which Paul Green has named as his "favorite music festival in the whole world."
Paul Green is the founder of the international music school chain School of Rock, and PGRA is the net iteration of that method and the school of his dreams...a small audition only school for only the most dedicated students, with branches in Philadelphia and Southwestern Connecticut.
