School Of Rock
With more than a decade of experience and over 200 schools throughout North and South America, Africa and Asia Pacific, School of Rock is the leader in performance-based after school music education. We were recently named a Forbes Best Franchise (#2 in the Medium Investment Level) and the #1 Music Franchise in America, as well as an Entrepreneur Magazine Top 200 Franchise and the #1 Child Enrichment Franchise for 2018. Students learn from professional musicians in an interactive environment, combining weekly one-on-one lessons with structured group rehearsals that culminate in a live performance in front of real crowds in real rock venues.

Through our performance-based approach to teaching music, our students are more inspired to learn, more motivated to excel and more confident in everything they do. Our series of programs are specifically designed to take each student on a unique musical journey, always giving them something to aspire to. Whether they are a complete novice or a seasoned musician there will always be something new and challenging for them to tackle. Our students not only learn to be great musicians, but they also establish a work ethic, learn teamwork and gain confidence that they can take with them throughout their lives.
