School of Rock is proud to partner with a number of different organizations around the world supporting music education, music artists and venues, and our neighborhoods. We're passionate about enriching the lives of not only our students but also our communities.
It is important we come together to create a support system for our community of musicians. School of Rock is proud to be an educational and creative outlet for both youth and adults.

Each year, School of Rock hosts in-person and online events in partnership with The Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide to raise awareness and funds for its invaluable services to our community.
