Confidence in all aspects of life.

School of Rock has introduced my daughters to all genres of music. They have fallen in love with musicians that they otherwise would not have been introduced to. The instructors have given them confidence.

A safe and fun place to meet new friends.

Enjoys having a private lesson followed by a band rehearsal later in the week. He enjoys meeting new people and forming new friendships. SoR Green Valley is a great place for kids of all ages!!!
