Andy Santiago
Guitar and Bass Teacher

Andy has been learning musical instruments starting with drums at the age of 8 and eventually progressing to guitar and bass at age 13. By that age, Andy started and joined his own bands and he is also a School of Rock House Band alum. His main genre of interest is Punk, but he explores all genres with equal interest. Andy plays many shows within the local punk scene and venues in Chicago with his band, Scumbag Skippy. Currently, he is working towards his Associate's Degree in Music Business at College of DuPage, hoping to transfer to a four-year university to further his education.

Emily Vela

Emily has been playing guitar for about four years now and is a recent graduate from School of Rock, having joined House Band after two years of being a student! Over the years, they participated in multiple Performance program shows, showing off their skills with guitar, bass, and also drums! Emily's goal is to teach anyone how to play music because they believe it can change your life. Playing guitar and performing is something that helps them feel like a real human. Emily is a guitar and bass instructor at School of Rock Naperville.
