About School of Rock Dublin

Welcome to School of Rock Dublin—a haven for aspiring musicians who love rock n’ roll. We believe live performance is the most fun and effective way to teach an instrument, which is why we get kids playing on stage as quickly as possible. Our classes are tailored to all age groups and levels of proficiency, and instructors are passionate about creating a legacy of music by helping students succeed in music and beyond.

We also believe that music is more than a solo act. That’s why School of Rock Dublin teaches kids to play alone and as part of a team. This approach promotes accountability, speeds up the learning process, and fosters an inclusive community of rockers in Dublin. Students are not only learning an instrument—they’re making friends, building confidence, and becoming better people.

Currently he is a dueling piano player and you can catch him anywhere, in any state, anytime at notable clubs such as; The Hard Rock Cafe, comedy clubs, corporate events, and blockbuster private parties.

      While growing up in communities of Southern California, and later Central Ohio, Spencer had several encounters with the guitar. At the age of 14, Spencer began studying with private instructors to develop his skills as a guitarist, and spent a majority of his free time pushing the limitations of what he knew about the instrument. As he continued to develop, he began to write music, and jam with friends. In the summer of 2009 he attended Musician Institute’s one week Summer Shot program. This is where Spencer realized he wanted to study music once he finished high school. He soon found out about The Los Angeles College of Music. After being accepted into the guitar program, he relocated from Columbus, Ohio to Pasadena, California. Spencer continued to evolve as a guitar player under world class instructors such as Jody Fisher, Bill Fowler, Dave Hill, Art Renshaw, and others. Spencer formed the band Raw Sky with fellow students of the Los Angeles College of Music. They collaborated and recorded with producer John Avila (Bassist of Oingo Boingo), and performed live around the Los Angeles area.

      Upon completing his Associate of Arts in Guitar Performance at the Los Angeles College of Music, Spencer pursued teaching guitar lessons, and passing on his knowledge to the next generation of guitar students. He has since returned to Columbus to continue his career as a guitarist, with a primary focus on jazz. He enjoys creating engaging lesson materials, and encouraging his students to listen to a wide variety of music. He also believes that direct application of musical concepts is imperative to progression on any instrument.

Testimonials

  • “I tried different activities for my 4yr old son, and none of them really held his interest; he never wanted to go back. Then we tried the School of Rock Dublin, and my son LOVED it. He looks forward to it every week, and he has so much fun. I love the fact that there is a class for little kids (Little Wing) that will help develop his musical knowledge and aptitude. And the staff is great and so friendly. I would highly recommend the School of Rock to anyone!!!!!”
    — Christine W., parent, Columbus, OH
  • “We are so lucky to have a School of Rock in Columbus. My 9 year old daughter loves learning how to play guitar and being in a band. The teachers Steve and Eric are amazing and so patient with the kids and Molly, the general manager does a great job running the show. I would recommend School of Rock to any kid who wants to learn how to play an instrument!! So awesome!!”
    — Charline B., parent, Columbus, OH
  • “My 9 year old son started taking guitar lessons a couple months ago and he has really enjoyed learning from Eric- who is a fantastic and nurturing teacher. The School of Rock is a great environment so I always wait there for my son’s lesson. I got to thinking, I should learn to play the bass- and I’m 52! I approached Molly the manager about this idea and she was VERY helpful in arranging the opportunity for me to take bass lessons from Lynetta in the same time slot as my son. Lynetta is also a wonderful instructor and is designing the lessons around what I want to accomplish as an adult learner. As it turns out my son and I are having a ball “going to school together”. It has been a very fulfilling bonding experience as we both learn something new together, practice our instruments together AND listen to music together. I highly recommend the School of Rock for you child……and for you! ”
    - 2 very satisfied customers, Dublin, OH
  • “My son loves the music he learns how to play at School of Rock. That makes a huge difference to the programs he tried before. He is always happy to go to his lessons, always looking forward to the next song, the next show. I wish he would be that eager to go to regular school and sports practice!”
