Reviews
This is a fulfilling enterprise.
This is really about self-actualization and achieving a dream of having a high-profile positive impact in the community. You can look long and hard from Alaska to Miami, but it’s really difficult to find a business you can start that’s actually fun. Maybe you can make $100 more a month at a franchise deli shop, but you’re making sandwiches. This is so much more unique.

Franchise Owner, School of Rock Chicago West
There’s absolutely nothing like it.
It’s a proven model: The opportunity and the structure of the business and the programs are a success. There’s nothing out there in the majority of markets I know of that can compete on that level. You may have some mom-and-pop type of schools that do something similar, but we’re a global brand.

There’s nothing more rewarding than seeing kids having fun.
...learning to become skilled musicians quickly, and building confidence through performing at some of the most well-known venues in the world. We’ve been riding the School of Rock wave with our own kids for several years and are thrilled to now be bringing the same joy and opportunities to others!

My vision for School of Rock West Cobb is that it will be a place for everyone.
...of every age, and of every background. Our goal is to become the leader in performance-based music education for the community, where all students are welcomed and encouraged to express themselves through the universal language of music, so they can rock both on stage and in life.

School of Rock students make friends, have mentors, and gain confidence.
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.

All my customer experiences are glowingly positive.
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.

Franchise Owner, School of Rock Arlington Heights, IL
I have never seen such a powerful product.
School of Rock is truly an amazing brand! Because of what we do for kids and the impact we make in our community, we are able to attract some very talented and passionate people to join our team. Having great staff makes a huge difference when you own a business.
