    In Rock 101, we focus our instruction on the one instrument that students have chosen to study. Whether we’re teaching scales, chords, notes, or time signatures, we put concepts in context so students understand how the principles they learn are applied to real music.

      Born in Dallas and raised in Coppell, Richard Sanchez began learning musical instruments at five years old. While he notes that the drum set is his primary instrument, he is proficient in guitar, bass and piano and has studied mallet percussion and cello as well. Rich began performing on drums professionally at the age of seventeen with students from the UNT college of music; playing almost every venue in Deep Ellum by the time he turned eighteen. He strongly credits rock music as being the catalyst that led him to study music in college. Rich was accepted to Berklee College of Music but decided to pursue jazz studies at University of North Texas where he got a degree in music. Rich has also worked as an audio engineer which he credits to giving him insight into the workings of the professional music industry. In his time working at Maximedia Studios he came in contact with artists such as The Jonas Brothers, Pat Green, Andy Timmons, Amy Lee of Evanescence, Filter, Justin Timberlake, Usher, and Timberland. He also worked as a session drummer for many local and regional artists. Richard currently plays in his original band, Jambunctious, and plays jazz gigs with top musicians from UNT's jazz studies program. Rich is a strong believer in the program at School Of Rock: 'I feel very privileged to have music in my life and to make it my career. I wish School Of Rock had been in existence when I started out because I've always wanted a mentor'¦a voice of experience in rock music. I've sought those people out in my career. Now I have the opportunity to be that person for these kids. They are the most important people to me and I want them to not only be good musicians, but to have fun. I want to share all of the joy that musicianship has brought to me.'

      A Texas musician, born and raised, Rory moved to the Dallas area from her home-town of Midland in 2013. She came out of the womb singing and started playing guitar at the age of 10. By the time she was 15, Rory was performing as both a local musician and a church worship leader. She spent two years studying opera and classic voice at Midland College before moving to North Texas to study at UNT. After settling into the music scene in Denton, Rory formed her band "The Wit and the Whimsy". She has since released a full length album, and performed in several Texas music festivals.
      Rory is known for her positive attitude and high energy personality. She loves to laugh loudly and learn something new at every given opportunity. She loves her new position at School of Rock Flower Mound because it allows her to put that energy into facilitating music in other people, which she considers to be the greatest honor and purpose any musician could have.
      Outside of music, Rory likes to spend her time in the outdoors with her dog, Puck. She is an avid hiker and climber, as well as a Kung Fu student.

      Joe, who has lived in Texas his entire life, can’t imagine anything else as a career other than music. On his 15th birthday, he received his first guitar from his parents. While he was raised on more contemporary music such as pop and country, Joe gravitated more towards rock music or anything that made you want to head bang. Understanding that learning an instrument takes an unreal amount of effort, he began to immerse himself in music. His instructors often told him that the only person who could hold him back was himself, and so he began playing and practicing at least 6-8 hours everyday. Soon after, Joe joined the School of Rock program as a student and then quickly made it into the Deans List and then the DFW summer tour. During his years as a student there, Joe practically interned under Marty Morris, the Music Director and General Manager of the Southlake School of Rock. Marty taught Joe how the program worked and the best way to approach each individual student in order to help them achieve their potential and motivate them to learn.

      Born in Denton Texas, Micah comes from a long line of musicians including an award-winning fiddler for a grandfather and a wonderful pianist, opera singer, and music educator for a mother. His father played the radio and has worked in live music production as well as amp repairs and custom guitar pedals. It was from these sources and more that Micah grew his eclectic tastes in music. From early blues and classic rock to classical, bluegrass, and world music, Micah’s use of various instrumentation and thorough application of musical systems embodies his desires for musical progression through every style of music. Some of Micah’s greatest influences include Doc Watson, Johnny Cash, Jim James, George Harrison, Larry Coryell, Jimmy Hendrix, Ravi Shankar, Lightnin’ Hopkins, John Medeski, David Rowlings, John Scofield, Issac Brock, Victor Wooten, Derek Trucks, Jimmy Page, Moondog, and Jerry Garcia.
      Micah started playing violin at age 4, started singing with the church choir and moved to piano at 6 as well as saxophone at age 8. When he was 15, Micah finally picked up the guitar and his world has never been the same since. In college, he played with the Berea College Bluegrass Ensemble as well as the Fusion Ensemble, all the while teaching and writing music as well as playing with various artists in the Appalachian region. It was during this time that Micah picked up the banjo as well as the bass guitar. Since then, Micah has moved back to DFW to go to UNT for an additional degree in music. Now, he teaches guitar, bass, and keys at the School of Rock Flower Mound in addition to composing his own music, and he also plays with two bands of local notoriety: The Wit and the Whimsy (featuring 4 other SoR employees) and...

      For those about to rock, there's a new place in Flower Mound to do it.School of Rock, which has six locations in the Metroplex, had a grand opening for its most recent school in Flower Mound in November.Owner Darryl Williams said Flower Mound was the perfect location for a new school.'This was just a pocket that made sense for this demographic,' Williams said. 'The kids here have a tremendous interest in music, and music is huge here. So it made sense to put one here.'School of Rock uses the concepts of both individual instruction and group performances to teach students of all ages how to play music at a high level. The school teaches vocals, guitars, bass, drums and keyboard. There have also been lessons in the banjo and the ukulele.The school is divided into different levels, beginning with the Kinder Rocker program for children as young as 3 years old. It goes up to 6 years old.The class serves as an introduction to music and rhythm, and it lasts for one hour a week.'The class is to get them to understand the joy of music, so we make it fun with games, Williams said.The next level is School of Rock 101. In this stage, students start out with 45-minute basic lessons followed by 90-minute group rehearsal. The program concludes with a live group performance with the instructor playing along with the band.The Performance Program is the next level, in which students again participate in 45-minute private lessons and 90-minute group rehearsals for about 12 weeks. It also concludes with a live show.Music director Ray Kidd said the group setting is what helps School of Rock students become so successful.'We see progress happen because of the band setting, and we see it so much faster,' Kidd said. 'For one thing, being part of the band is like being on a team. You want to help each other. But there's also a good peer pressure aspect to it. You want to practice and learn because you don't want to be the one who disappoints the band because you don't know your stuff.'Kidd said the Performance Program often draws in young students from the School of Rock 101 class.'We've had 10-year-olds in the Performance Program playing alongside 17-year-olds. I wasn't that good when I was that young,' Kidd said, laughing.Kidd said there are two things he looks for in bringing someone up to the Performance Program.'Can you hang out for three hours, and what kind of work ethic do you have?' Kidd said.There are also plans for an adult class for individuals in their 20s and older. Students in this class will receive a 45-minute lesson each week and then rehearse with a group for three hours before performing in front of an audience at night.Williams said it's rewarding to see how quickly some of the students pick up music.'We had a girl the other day who was playing [The White Stripes song] 'Seven Nation Army,' and it was her first time to pick up the guitar,' Williams said. 'She's 8 years old. To see that girl with the big guitar on her lap -- she was so proud.'Williams said the key to any of the students' success is work outside of the class.'It's all up to them,' Williams said. 'If they work at it at home, then we see tremendous results real quick. Practice, practice, practice is our big thing.' School of Rock also offers intensive five- to 10-day sessions during the summer, winter break and spring break. Those classes also conclude with a live show.For information, go to www.flower mound.schoolofrock.com .Read less

      You aren't going to find any quiet classrooms filled with studying students at a new school in Flower Mound. Instead, this campus encourages kids to get loud and rock out to some great tunes. They're cool, confident, and capable of making a big splash with their musical talents. Welcome to the School of Rock! 'We have a motto that we inspire kids to rock on stage and in life,' said Ray Kidd, the school's music director. He explained that these students learn more than just how to play rock and roll songs. 'Students learn how to sing, write and produce music, play instruments and, yes, rock out.' The walls of the school are decorated with band logos and photographs. It certainly doesn't look like a typical classroom. 'Kids want to learn bands that they listen to,' said Kidd, 'like the Metallicas, the AC/DCs, the Zeppelins, and even the new stuff '” the My Chemical Romances of the world and all that type of stuff. That's what we do. And we encourage that. Kids learn faster when they enjoy what they do.' The students also learn to be in tune with each other, by working together as a band instead of individually. And eventually, the bands take their talents to an actual stage. 'A lot of the people here are misfits, for lack of a better term,' said student Joe Medina. 'So, when it's like a bunch of people who are different coming together, you instantly feel more accepted.' School co-owner Darryl Williams opened the Flower Mound location after seeing how much fun his grandkids had at another campus. For him, this is a fun and rewarding gig. 'I was at a point in my life where I wanted to do something I was passionate about,' Williams said, 'and something where I could give back to the community, and this is just a great way to do that.' 'It's something that helped me,' said Medina. 'I was pretty shy and stuff, but I've gained a lot of confidence being on stage and stuff.' There are more than 125 other School of Rock locations, including one as far away as The Philippines. The school offers lessions for a wide range of age groups, from toddlers to adults.Read less

My boys have learned so much, they feel accepted and they can Rock with the best of them. This place is our home away from home, everyone is like family. I can’t say enough great things about this school and staff. We Love SOR FLOMO! ”
    Candice Valdez, Rocker Mom, Flower Mound, TX
  • “Both of my daughters are in the Flower Mound School of Rock program. I am absolutely amazed at what they are doing. Listening to my girls practice is awesome, and the fact that they want to practice daily is what really shows the difference in the SOR program. They want to get better. All of the teachers are great with the kids and incredibly knowledgeable. If you have a child who even shows the slightest interest in music, I urge you to check out School of Rock. You will see such a difference in just about everything they do, school, confidence, and not to mention the fact that you will have a rock star kid.”
    Kirby Williams, Rocker Dad, Flower Mound, TX
  • “My son has found his place at School of Rock. He has moved beyond a kid who didn't want to perform in public to a confident preteen who looks forward to being on stage and can play through a song even if there's a misstep. The instructors have taught him guitar but also life skills that go on long after the band leaves the stage. ”
    Jennifer Wilford, Rocker Mom, Flower Mound, TX
  • “Our daughter has attended since August 2014. In just that short period of time we've seen incredible growth in her abilities and her confidence. The staff are incredible and there's no doubt in their skill or their devotion to the kids. There's a reason they get kids from outside the Flower Mound area. It's simply because they are the best! Long rock Flower Mound School of Rock!”
    Joel Voelkner, Rocker Dad, Flower Mound, TX
