Can't Slow Down: School of Rock Announces Expansion Plans in Motown

School of Rock, the leader in performance-based music education with over 355 schools across 15 global markets, is looking to expand its presence in Detroit, Michigan through franchising.

"We do more than teach students to play their favorite songs," said Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock. "We nurture confidence, foster teamwork and instill self-discipline for success. Over the years, hundreds of thousands have entered our kids' music programs and left as accomplished musicians. We're excited to expand our presence to Detroit, a city with a rich musical legacy from its Motown roots to its rock 'n' roll history."

School of Rock provides students with an exciting and engaging music education experience, which includes bass lessons, guitar lessons, singing lessons, drum lessons, and piano lessons. Drawing from all styles of rock and roll, School of Rock students learn theory and techniques via songs from various legendary artists.

With more than two decades of experience, School of Rock offers entrepreneurs the opportunity to quickly plug into a global brand with a proven business model. A testament to its mission and culture is the fact that many of its franchise owners started their journey as parents of students enrolled in School of Rock programs. Through the power of music, prospective franchise owners have the chance to make a lasting impact on the lives of students and their communities as a whole.

"Music has always been a passion of mine, and owning a School of Rock has given me a career with purpose," said Chris Marek, current franchise owner of three School of Rock locations in Michigan. "I met so many amazing, creative people through opening the Canton school in 2019, that I was inspired to open a second location in Farmington in 2021, and I am currently working to open a third school. I love being a School of Rock owner."

The initial investment for a School of Rock franchise is approximately $395,800 – $537,400 including a $49,900 franchise fee. Ideal candidates, or group of investors, will have a net worth of $350,000, of which $150,000 is liquid. Additionally, U.S. military veterans receive a special discount on their initial franchise fee.
