What is School of Rock?

As educators, we’re trailblazers with our patented performance-based model of music instruction. You may already be familiar with the movie that bears our name. Yes, we were the little startup that inspired that movie, but the real-life School of Rock is so much more. Today we’re an education franchise with over 290 locations worldwide. We have schools in 15 countries and continue to develop and open new schools around the globe.

The conventional method of music instruction is that you must master musical concepts before you move on to play songs that actually inspire you. Our approach is different. You start by learning to play and perform the songs that inspire you, and through that process you will develop mastery of music theory with the added benefit of knowing how to play with others.

Our unique approach to instruction and our love of rock music helps 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
