The staff helped me fit in when I was new and feeling a little shy or nervous. Teachers really want the best for you and therefore give you honest tips on improvement. Overall I’ve only been here for three weeks and I already love it!

Very Helpful!

The staff took the time to let me tour the facilities during one visit and then my husband on a second visit. My daughter is quite shy and they made her feel relaxed during the lesson. She is excited every week to attend and practice.

Lessons are tailored for each child.

Every child is made to feel welcome and special. Kids are working towards something, the shows, rather than just learning an instrument for no purpose. I would definitely recommend School of Rock, and I have done on many occasions!
