      Originally from Florida, Daniel was drawn to music from an early age. He followed the typical path of young aspiring drummers banging away on everything within reach. This passion led him to study music in school while being influenced by the sounds he heard on the radio. After graduating, Daniel quickly learned that this passion extended beyond playing to include teaching. Currently residing in Atlanta, he continues to do both, maintaining an active performance schedule while sharing his experiences with students at the School of Rock.

      The oldest of three, Michael grew up in Pensacola, Florida, participating in high-school band and chorus. With his head set on performing, he accepted music scholarships from Pensacola Junior College and the University of South Alabama, majoring in voice and piano. After college, Magno moved to NYC intent on making it big. 'I remember being happy without a car, eating pbj's and ramen noodles.' Always describing NYC as 'electric', Magno drew constant inspiration from the city for his songs. A couple of years later, Michael relocated back to the Gulf Coast, vowing to return to the Big Apple.After a few months back, Michael found himself in Nashville, living there only in between road shows and rehearsals. Never really benefiting from the city's 'songwriter's mindset', Nashville was only a stopping point in Magno's musical career. Fast forward to Atlanta.In just a few short years, Michael has established a reputation in Atlanta as an avid performer and singer/songwriter. Honing his skills, Magno writes songs conveying emotional content rather than storytelling, often defined by his crystalline vocals. Michael states that he is a singer foremost than a songwriter, but a growing legion of fans are determined to ensure him of both titles.Inspired by radio-loving parents, Michael recalls his earliest albums were a mix of pop, rock, funk and disco. He credits Elton John and Billy Joel as his early piano heroes, but it was Rick Springfield and 80's rock that really inspired him to pick up guitar. The infatuation of three-chord songs and sing-along pop melodies became his instant theme, but you can still hear the influence of piano within his writing. ' I want people to walk away remembering something from any of my shows and music; even if it's just the melody.'

      Luke was introduced to guitar at a young age by his older brother who was studying guitar at the collegiate level. Being surrounded by all of this music at an early age allowed him to pick up playing guitar with his brothers guidance and helped carve the way for Luke to attend music school for himself. While studying guitar at Berklee College of Music, Luke experienced a completely diverse and unique culture of individuals influencing each others learning by exploring music with people from around the world. It's from these experiences and individuals that helped Luke find his own unique musical self. As a teacher, Luke wants to expose to students all the possible journeys one can take in starting out, or continuing, a musical exploration and help guide the student toward their own, personal discovery of music.

Testimonials

  • “I can’t tell you what an enriching experience this has been for our whole family and especially for Josh. The instructors there were so much more than teachers for Josh, they were his idols and his role models. It has been an amazing time, and I know that as Josh gets older he will look back on all the memories he made at the SOR fondly. You have created something special there, and I hope you understand what an impact your efforts have had on the lives of these children.Thank you for everything! ”
    — Tim Gallagher, Father of School of Rock Denver student
  • “Carlson's time at School of Rock helped her recruit most of her current bandmates. It spurred her to apply to Berklee which, unlike other colleges that offer music majors geared mainly toward classical and jazz, offered the opportunity to train as a well-rounded musician. ”
    — Chelsea Carson, student from Long Valley School of Rock
  • “School of Rock is the best thing we have done for our three children. They learn self-confidence, teamwork, and musicianship in an environment that is safe and free of the typical age-barrier restrictions that are often inherent in other student activities. The youngest and oldest kids in the school work together and everyone is an equal on stage. I wish other youth activities were as welcoming. ”
    — Tony C., parent, Great Valley, PA
  • “School of Rock has helped develop my daughter's self confidence. She just lights up when she is on stage. I just love watching and seeing her growth as a person and as a musician. SOR is her second family. ”
    — Lori H., parent, Downingtown, PA
