WHAT OUR FRANCHISEES SAY ABOUT SCHOOL OF ROCK

At School of Rock, you don’t have to be a musician to join one of the most successful franchises in music education. Some of our franchise owners are parents who were impressed with how our rock school transformed their shy, isolated kid into a self-confident musician performing with a band onstage. Other franchise owners are former corporate professionals who changed careers in search of more entrepreneurial, purpose-driven work. No matter who they are, all our franchisees have one thing in common: They feel a deep connection to music and love being able to improve the lives of children in their local communities.

WHO IS SCHOOL OF ROCK?

You may already be familiar with the movie that bears our name. Yes, we were the little startup that originally inspired that movie, but the real-life School of Rock is so much more.

WHAT MAKES SCHOOL OF ROCK DIFFERENT

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. It combines one-on-one instruction with group rehearsals and live performances, starting students on their musical journey by playing 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.

WHY PARENTS & KIDS LOVE US

When parents watch their kids perform music from the Beatles or AC/DC onstage in a local venue, they immediately get that this is nothing like the piano recitals put on by other music schools. In fact, our students play over 4,000 live shows each year. Our franchise music instructors are all professional musicians who teach familiar, fun, and engaging music that children want to play and don’t need encouragement to practice.

They won’t be sitting on the edge of their beds glumly picking out “Mary Had a Little Lamb.” They’ll be practicing their power chords to Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A.”

The lessons are made to be fun
“ The lessons are made to be fun, to allow the kids to play music before becoming too academic as traditional music schools do. As in life, we learn to speak before reading and writing. School of Rock gets you to speak music before having to read and write music. ”
