With more than a decade of experience and over 170 schools throughout North and South America, Africa and Asia Pacific, School of Rock is the leader in performance-based after school music education, and was recently honored as an Entrepreneur Magazine Top 200 Franchise. Students learn from professional musicians in an interactive environment combining weekly one-on-one lessons with structured group rehearsals culminating in a live performance in front of real crowds in real rock venues.
Through our performance-based approach to teaching music, our students are more inspired to learn, more motivated to excel and more confident in everything they do. Our series of programs are specifically designed to take each student through their unique musical journey, always giving them something to aspire to. Whether they are a complete novice or a seasoned musician there will always be something new and challenging for them to reach for. Not only do our students learn to be great musicians, but they also establish a work ethic, learn teamwork, and gain confidence that they can take with them throughout their lives.

"My partner and I opened The School of Rock in North Palm Beach Florida in July of 2009. We went into this hoping to make a difference in kid's lives through Rock n Roll and build a business at the same time. Since, we have played amazing shows on awesome stages and have watched our school grow in the process. People ask me all the time, "Looking back, are you glad you opened the school?" HELL YEAH!
~ Rick Rothschild - North Palm Beach, FL
"In 2008 I made the decision to follow my dreams of incorporating my business background with my passion of working with kids and teaching music. I learned of School of Rock and was not only blown away by the philosophy, values and programs, but also the business model and leadership team. Two years later, I own and operate four schools in two distinct markets (Dallas and Detroit), and live my dream every day of working with amazing kids, families, and some of the finest musicians in the local music scenes. I'm proud to be part of the School of Rock family!
