School of Rock launched the virtual music education platform, School of Rock Online™, earlier this year as an expansion of its patented School of Rock Method™. The platform was created to enhance the experience of online lessons, significantly improving audio quality compared to other online video solutions to ensure clarity for all students and teachers on every instrument.
"We are so proud to see the impact that School of Rock Online™ has had in such a short time for thousands of students across the country," said Sam Dresser, Chief Innovation Officer of School of Rock. "The pandemic changed much of how things are done, but one thing that remains consistent is the power of music education. School of Rock Online™ provides our students with the highest quality of remote music instruction regardless of where they live."
School of Rock Online™ allows students to safely and securely connect with their School of Rock instructor for online lessons. It includes innovative features and functionality built specifically for music lessons, like a built-in metronome, tuner, virtual keyboard, scale and chord generators, and more. The entire platform is integrated into School of Rock’s billing and scheduling system and the revolutionary Method App™, powered by MatchMySound®, allowing students to connect to their remote lesson seamlessly and safely.
The platform has garnered widespread success since its launch, with almost 4,000 students participating in online remote lessons from School of Rock Online™, as well as the reception of major accolades, including a 2022 Franchise Innovation Award for Most Innovative Use of Customer-Facing Digital Tools.
