About School of Rock Kirkwood

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

At School of Rock Kirkwood, we believe that playing real music is the only path to proficiency and a true appreciation for music.

    In Rock 101, students select one instrument to study, and we begin teaching fundamentals: scales, chords, notes, time signatures, and all the rest. Our unique approach to music instruction teaches our students vital fundamentals through songs they know and love, not rote memorization. With real musical context in a fun environment, we give all of our students the knowledge they need to really pursue their passion for music.

    Each summer, our AllStars embark on an authentic concert tour to perform in jaw-dropping live shows across the country, including Red Rocks, Lollapalooza, Hangout Music Fest, NAMM, Gathering of the Vibes, and countless others. AllStars also get to share the stage with experienced, larger-than-life performers like Alice Cooper, Eddie Vedder, and Slash, to name a few. There is no better way for a star on the rise to get a taste for what professional music is really like.

We get our students playing and learning at lightning-quick speeds through practical performance rather than run-of-the-mill music instruction programs. At School of Rock Kirkwood, the thrill of the performance is just as important as learning the skill to rock.

    Our adult students learn the fundamentals of music, including scales, chords, notes, progressions, and more, through some of the most iconic songs and sounds in music history. Whether you’re a die-hard fan of rock ‘n roll or a metal-loving head-banger at home in the mosh pit, our teachers know how to best connect your love for music with a passion for learning it.

  • School of Rock Kirkwood’s Rookies Program offers a gateway to understanding music for first and second graders. Using proprietary set-ups for guitar, bass, drums and keyboard, as well as other tools, we introduce our Rookies to music fundamentals in a fun way. The skills and passion for music that our Rookies learn prepares them for Rock 101 and a lifelong love of music.

    With exercises, tools and games customized to their age group, our Kirkwood Rookies learn the concepts of music theory, rhythm, pitch, form and dynamics as they play alongside their friends. We encourage our students to explore various instruments and play styles so they begin to understand how individual contributions form a band; even the best solo keyboard players or vocalists need to understand how an ensemble works.

    All students in Kirkwood’s Rookies Program can expect:

    • Weekly group lessons using guitar, bass, keyboard and drums
    • Exposure to essential fundamentals like music theory, pitch and rhythm
    • A focus on teamwork and collaboration
    • An understanding of what it means to play solo and in a group

Our students learn music by playing it with their peers, guided by experienced instructors from the music community.

      With a background of two years managing Euclid Records, five years traveling with vintage clothing company Donnaland Vintage Variety, and ten years of playing music in Saint Louis, I joined the team at School of Rock Ballwin in September of 2015. I was inspired to join the team at School of Rock because of my experience teaching vocals at the school. I strongly believe in the value that comes from working in a group. The most rewarding part of my job is seeing the development and growth of the kids during a show season. I love having a job where I can be constantly surrounded by music, and work closely with the amazing musicians who make our mission of inspiring kids to rock on stage in life possible. I front a 4 piece Rock 'n' Roll band under my name and I have released 5 records across two bands since 2012. Music is life!

      I've enjoyed teaching music since the early 2000s, and love being part of the School of Rock community. I've been with SoR since we first opened in the St Louis area in 2013, and have been able to see numerous students take their first steps on stage at a rock venue, conquer new challenges in music, and build confidence through their musical successes.

      I also work as a professional guitarist with Celebration Day and Street Fighting Band as well as original bands The Cree Rider Family Band, The Feed and The Incurables. St Louis is a vibrant music community and it's rewarding to be able to open doors into music and performance for the students at School of Rock.

      I would be excited to get to know you and the aspiring musicians in your family!

      We are proud rocker parents of two very talented children whose music education journeys took two very different paths with two different outcomes. Starting in 5 th Grade, our son learned the guitar from a well-reputed local bass and guitarist in St. Louis. Josh would spend countless hours practicing in his room and in the basement with headphones on. While Marc would tell us how great Josh was progressing, we never could tell since Josh would never perform for us or let us hear him practice. It wasn't until three years after starting lessons that we heard Josh play the guitar at his middle school talent show. We were amazed at his talents and felt how much better he would be if he had more opportunities to perform. Abby, on the other hand, began to learn the guitar in a similar environment but she lost interest after a year and stopped playing because she needed to be around others in the learning process. Had she been able to start her learning process in a program similar to School of Rock's Music 101 and had the opportunity to perform on stage, we believe she would still be learning and playing the guitar. Each of our children's learning experiences led us to seek out School of Rock and bring your children the opportunity to learn music in a way we wish existed for our children.

      My name is Adnan Kahvedzic. I have received a AA in Music in May 2014 at St. Louis Community College Meramec. Since transferring to UMSL I began to study Music Education and Piano Performance. I study piano with Alla Voskoboynikova, jazz piano with Ken Kehner and cello with Kurt Baldwin. During my undergraduate study at UMSL, I was was a finalist in the UMSL Music Department Concerto Competition in November 2015. I actively participate in various ensembles, playing the cello with the University Orchestra and jazz guitar with UMSL's Jazz Combo's.

      I love not only teaching but learning from students. I strongly believe in being "lifelong learners". This is one of my greatest joys, when students are curious and question fingerings, phrasing or technique. This helps reinforce my own playing and solidifies my teaching. Working at School of Rock has exposed me to many different musical genres and taught me different styles of music. The environment at SoR is very relaxed, students and teachers enjoy their time spent together because of it. Seeing students improve in just a couple of weeks is so rewarding not only for them but myself as well! This constant drive and motivation is very inspiring!

      Hello everyone,

      My name is Raye Cole and have been blessed with the honor of becoming a vocal instructor with the School of Rock. I thoroughly enjoy helping people tap into their full musical potential. I enjoy teaching others how to effectively use their voice. Also, I like to help build other’s confidence as a performer.Currently, I am an Independent singer-songwriter and recording artist. I consider myself a “Soul Singer”, however, I can sing for multiple genres.

      During my youth, my grandmother realized that I was musically inclined. She encouraged me to sing in the church choir. During high school, I participated in Theater Arts as well as choir. Later, I would take vocal lessons at Southwestern Illinois College. I received my start in St. Louis by singing at open mics and jam sessions. Later, I would start performing at different venues around St. Louis and I was able to see the inner workings of performing.

      2015 was a breakout year for me. After years of hard work I finally began to see the fruits of my labor. I won an online music contest that granted me the opportunity to attend the 57th Annual Grammy Awards in Beverly Hills California. It was amazing. I felt like I was in a dream. I performed with STLive which is an organization that supports local artist and helps them to book shows. Next, I won the title of “RAW Artist Musician of the Year for St. Louis” for my performance during a showcase. After that, my original songs were placed in film called “ Cronies” which was produced by the legendary Spike Lee. The film was shot here in St. Louis and it is available on Netflix. Finally, I am a volunteer songwriter with the “Songs of Love Foundation”. The Songs of Love Foundation believes that music has healing properties. As a songwriter, I write personalized songs for children with severe illnesses.

      I look forward to helping you to become the singer or artist that you were born to be! Thank you for taking time to read my story!

      My name is Julio Prato. I am a guitar performer and sound engineer from Caracas, Venezuela. I came to Missouri to study Music Performance in Lindenwood University, where I graduated magna cum laude and received the Conover Award for Outstanding Male Music Student and the Musica Cum Laude Magnum departmental award. I love music more than anything else in the world. I spend most of my free time listening to new material and expanding my stylistic knowledge to unexplored horizons.

      Performing live is a very big part of my life; my experience co-founding and leading STL based experimental punk band Kenshiro's since early 2013 has been wonderful and has taught me a lot in terms of how to put together and coordinate a musical group. I also produce all sorts of music under my moniker "nebulosa", with material ranging from simple beats to expansive electronic compositions. Recording, mixing, producing, arranging and composing are all common practices in my day to day; that's why I always strive to teach my students to love and interpret music in their own way, using all the technical and ethereal tools the musical world has to offer.

Testimonials

  • “Jordan and Molly are a real asset to the School of Rock. Their passion for music shows when they engage the students. All my interactions with any of the instructors has also been great. Spencer has really grown as a musician, and it has really built up his confidence. Thanks!”
    - STL Parent at School of Rock
  • “What a quality operation! The opportunities these kids have to play with professional sound and lighting in amazing venues is something that countless times I hear parents say they wish they had had when they were teenagers! IT's fast tracking them into quality production, giving them a sense of entitlement that I find promotes confidence for their passion. By stripping away the logistics of the performance and publicity aspect, their grit can focus on practicing and playing. ”
    - Sharon, a parent at Kirkwood School of Rock
  • “How quickly my child learned to really play actual songs, and now she plays on stage with confidence. My child has excelled beyond measure at School of Rock Kirkwood in every aspect. He has learned so much about different genres of music, gained confidence in his playing, made some of the best friends of his life. He cannot wait to be there (and he's there almost every day this summer!) and enjoys telling and showing us what he's learned. Thank you!”

I get to see all the kids come and go for their lessons. The teacher walks out with the student at the end of their lesson and reports to the parent the progress that they are making. No matter the age of the child, there is always a confident smile on both the child's and the teacher's face. To me, that shows that the teachers are promoting confidence and patience in their students.”
