      Butch has been a veteran of the Philadelphia-area music scene for over twenty years. He joined School of Rock in the Fall of 2011.

      Following years of private study and music courses in high school, Butch attended Community College of Philadelphia, where he studied composition, theory, and orchestration with Lee Silvan of the Philly Pops. During this time, Butch also studied guitar with jazz great Jimmy Bruno.

      It was through Jimmy Bruno that Butch started to form the ideas and the approach that have shaped his teaching style. Referring to his style as a “Crayon Method”, students are encouraged to be creative throughout the learning process. “People can draw pictures with only 8 crayons, which is knowing just a little. As students learn more about music, they add more colors, and the picture only gets better. Eventually, we get the player to draw from as many colors as their imagination will allow.”

      Butch can be seen performing in the bands Mane Attraction and Out of Nowhere, as well as contributing to various recording projects and films.

Testimonials

  • “I cannot say enough about the FWSOR . Our son has been there almost 2 years and has thrived both musically and socially. He has had such amazing opportunities to play at such a wide range of venues! It has been a blast to watch him grow and to meet all of the other great families! Everyone is so supportive of each other and the culture is positive and uplifting! ”
    — Jennifer C., parent, Ambler, PA

  • ““You are transforming my child into someone who knows that she "can." She doesn't hope for the "I can" anymore - she KNOWS she can now. Our daughter is learning how to come out of herself, take risks, close her eyes and just fly. We are so grateful. More than you can ever know. ””
