By inspiring the world to rock on stage and in life, School of Rock transforms the lives of kids and adults through music. As the leader in performance-based music education, it is an ingenious concept that gets kids and adults rocking out to the classics and on stage performing with their peers. Music programs are designed to create a supportive environment where music students of all skill levels are comfortable yet challenged at every turn. In addition to individual private music instruction on guitar, bass, vocals, keyboards and/or drums, students also learn how to jam with their peers in a weekly practice session. The team dynamic creates a supportive and motivating environment where kids feel inspired to excel. Genres of music studied include Rock, Reggae, Motown, Blues, Pop, Metal, and more. The schools offer individual lessons, performance classes, summer camps and workshops. School of Rock just hit its 15 year milestone and has more than 125 locations nationwide.
