Wellness Wednesday’s Newest Session: “Classic Rock Music Hour”


There is a new addition to Wellness Wednesday called “Classic Rock Music Hour.” The image above is senior Tyler Hogan, who plays the guitar for the session.

Wellness Wednesday has added a new session for students called “Classic Rock Music Hour” in room 331. With Coach Andy Martin as it’s host, it is a sixty-minute period to listen to classic rock music and jam out with senior Tyler Hogan. Every Wednesday, he brings his guitar from home and plays classic songs such as “Bleed The Freak” by Alice in Chains, “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana, and “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Guns N’ Roses. 

Hogan takes requests and even shares his own songs. He remasters many popular rock/metal artists music like Black Sabbath, Metallica, Pantera, and Motley Crue. Hogan has been playing the guitar since he was a freshman and has only gotten better since. His favorite band is Led Zeppelin and he hopes to possibly start a band of his own one day in the future.

When asked what inspired him to start playing the guitar, Hogan expressed, “My uncle has a guitar collection in his basement and said if I learned how to play, I would be able to inherit them. So I thought that I might as well start playing if I was the only one who gets to inherit his guitars.”

Martin encourages students to come and bring their friends to his Wellness session to listen to Hogan play. He feels like rock music helps unite people, and that is what he and Hogan are set out to do.
