Bono, the leader of one of the world’s greatest rock bands, once said, “Music can change the world because it can change people.” Dave LaSalle, owner of School of Rock Attleboro, has taken that quote to heart. Music teaches kids life lessons with every note. For Dave, School of Rock Attleboro is a culmination of his three great passions: playing music, starting businesses, and working with kids.

Dave’s love of music began at age 6, when he started playing his first instrument. By age 14, he was playing professionally in a very successful local band in the Rhode Island / Southeastern Massachusetts area. Dave capitalized on the discipline, team building, leadership, and perseverance that he developed through his experience with music when he co-founded a medical device company in 1999. Throughout his professional career he never forgot about his great passion for music. His commitment to creating and performing music has paid dividends over a lifetime.

While in the medical device industry, Dave joined the Taunton Area School to Career (TASC) Board of Directors and served as their treasurer. In addition to helping guide the organization, he has volunteered as a mentor to help numerous high school students explore career development opportunities.

Dave sees School of Rock as the right mix of business and fun. School of Rock is a music education company that operates and franchises over 300 locations worldwide.
