What is School of Rock?

As educators, we’re trailblazers with our performance-based model of music instruction. Today we’re an almost 300 unit global brand, boosting the lives of over 40,000 students in 9 countries. We continue to develop and open new schools across the world. The leadership team is comprised of a group of experienced franchise executives who are either musicians themselves or deeply passionate about music and music education.

Traditional music education approaches rarely teach students how to perform with other musicians, focusing instead on teaching music only through one-on-one lessons. The School of Rock Method is different. We combine one-on-one instruction with group rehearsals and live performances, starting students on their musical journey by teaching the songs that inspire them. This integrated SongFirst® approach teaches students techniques and theory while also helping them apply those skills when performing with other musicians. This method results in remarkable musical proficiency.

The patent-pending School of Rock Method includes the Method Books, the Method App, manuals and the Method Engine to integrate the content. The app was designed to be used by students and instructors. It houses all of the exercises from the Books, tools to practice the music skills at home, and also for the parents to monitor the kid’s progress.

This unique approach instruction and our love of rock music help young, aspiring musicians find themselves, hone their talents, and build the confidence they need in their lives. School of Rock is a safe place for kids to learn, develop friendships with other kids who are into music, and carve out a niche for themselves in a world where they might never have felt a sense of belonging before.

Testimonials:

“Most of the kids who come to School of Rock are just drifting through school, they’re not plugged in anywhere. Their parents are frustrated. They’ve tried band, they’ve tried soccer — nothing sticks. They feel like failures. They send their kids to School of Rock and now they’re plugged in, they’ve got a network of friends, they’ve got mentors in our teachers, they’re performing on stage, they’re confident. Their parents are over the moon.” Steve McFarland - School of Rock Carmel and Fishers, IN

“As a retired 22 year Navy Officer and Veteran, I could have chosen many paths to follow and done well on any of them. Instead, I chose School of Rock and have never been happier with a career decision. The product/service is a worthwhile, community-focused endeavor providing skillsets to the next generation, employment for our local artists, AND income to the business owners/leadership. The global brand is solid, well known and brings with it a host of proven standardized processes – FOLLOW THEM. And YES, I’d do it again... in a heartbeat.” Mark Sheffield – School of Rock Otay Ranch, CA

“I was talking to a lot of different friends with similar-sized businesses in and out of franchising. I was looking through all the Yelp reviews for School of Rock and I couldn’t find a bad one. Some Schools have 40 reviews and you can barely find anything negative. I saw the strength of School of Rock. All of my customer experiences are glowingly positive.” Jim Gignac - School of Rock Arlington Heights, IL
