School of Rock announced a grand opening of its newest location from 1 to 5 p.m. April 26 at 2515 East Piedmont Road in Marietta. The event will feature a guitar-smashing ceremony, live performances, trial lessons, guided tours, refreshments and giveaways.

School of Rock is a concept that gets kids and adults rocking out to the classics and on-stage performing with their peers. Music programs are designed to create a supportive environment where music students of all skill levels are comfortable yet challenged at every turn. In addition to individual private music instruction on guitar, bass, vocals, keyboards and drums, students also learn how to jam with their peers in a weekly rehearsal session.

School of Rock East Cobb is owned and operated by Adam Lavinsky, who discovered his love for music when he started playing his first drum set at the age of 9.

The 28-year-old entrepreneur graduated from Berklee College of Music, where he studied Music Business and was the original drummer for the band, Passion Pit. Upon graduation, he returned to Atlanta where he played drums for both Lexi Street and Waller. He now is the drummer for the Asheville, N.C.-based band Ryan Sheffield and the HighHills.
