About School of Rock Franklin

Welcome to School of Rock Franklin—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 Franklin 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 Franklin. Students are not only learning an instrument—they’re making friends, building confidence, and becoming better people.

      The School of Rock is 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.

      We also believe that music is more than a solo act. That’s why the School of Rock 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 Franklin. Students are not only learning an instrument—they’re making friends, building confidence, and becoming better people. Come see these amazing young musicians' performance of one of the greatest albums in rock n' roll paired with one of the all-time classic films.

      Few albums ever achieve the unanimous recognition of Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon. Released in 1973, the 43-minute long concept album tackled massive themes -- greed, mental illness, the passage of time, and personal conflict -- and propelled Pink Floyd into the echelons of rock immortality.

      Upon its release, Dark Side of the Moon topped the Billboard charts and remained on the list for 741 weeks -- from 1973 to 1988 -- and proceeded to sell nearly 50 million copies worldwide, making it one of the top-ten best-selling albums of all time. More than four decades later, the British psychedelic rock band’s greatest work still sells 8,000 to 9,000 copies on any given week. One music scholar estimates that one in every fourteen people in the United States under the age of 50 owns, or has previously owned, a copy.

      The ethereal nature of The Dark Side of the Moon led to a strange observation: in the mid-nineties, users in an online forum pointed out that the album served as a perfect soundtrack for the 1939 film “The Wizard of Oz.” Urban legend, coincidence, or a mastery of synchronciity--come see the School of Rock perform this iconc album in sync with one of the great movies of all time.Read less
