Her Favorite Activity Ever.

I enrolled my daughter in the Rookies class a little over a month ago. She's been in dance, gymnastics and a different music class, but this by far is her favorite. Thanks School of Rock!

My boys feel like stars.

Both of my boys have been taking guitar lessons here since they opened. The instructors are wonderful and very knowledgeable. They teach the kids what they really want to know- how to play great music.

Can't Rave About It More!

We felt right at home immediately. My son has some special issues and the people catered to our every need. My son who struggled with music now loves it and found a home there.

There's no school greater!

It's the best music program for kids and adolescents. If you want to become a good musician and learn how to really play, as well as learn music theory, this is the place for you.
