      Jonny was born and raised in Nacogdoches, 'The Oldest Town in Texas' where he was constantly surrounded by his loving parents, a younger brother and sister, both sets of incredible grandparents, and an amazing group of buddies. He learned at an early age how to love the Lord and what it meant to be a child of the King. His church family poured in to his life every Wednesday and Sunday and even played a part in his early education as they founded a private school for teaching in a Christian environment.At the age of 3 Jonny's great-grandmother promised him her 'Schillings' upright piano when she passed away; then at age 8, Jonny began taking piano lessons. He took lessons from a local college student who taught him how to love piano and to love music. Jonny quickly developed a good ear and a strong mind for music theory, which equipped him to better understand the passionate intricacies of music.After graduating from Nacogdoches High School, Jonny moved 500 miles to Levelland, Texas to earn his Associate's Degree in Commercial Music at South Plains College where he studied piano and voice. He was a member of the auditioned Thursday Nite Live, Country Jukebox, and the Real Book ensembles in his time there.Within his first 2 months in West Texas Jonny started working with 'Thirty-Nine Thoughts' as a roadie and quickly became the group's keyboard player. Thirty-Nine Thoughts has since played with bands such as Bread of Stone, Manafest, Abandon, Seventh Day Slumber, and Casting Crowns.In addition to Thirty-Nine Thoughts Jonny often plays keys at the Cactus Theater and for local vocalist Karleigh Porterfield. He is at First Baptist Church Lubbock every Sunday morning and Thursday night worshipping on stage alongside his brothers and sisters in Christ: his absolute favorite thing to do.Some of his influences include Bruce Hornsby, Floyd Cramer, Journey, Boston, Van Halen, The Eagles, Ray Charles, and Elton John, but nothing has played a greater role in shaping his music than the hymns that he played growing up in a small Nazarene church in East Texas.

      Tony Garcia was born and raised in Abilene, TX , and was introduced to drums around the age of 7. He knew at a very young age that he would spend the rest of his life playing and teaching music, sharing his passion with others as he was so lucky to have growing up. Tony graduated from Cooper High School, where he was a part of the marching band, concert band and school musicals. He then decided to Attend Texas Tech University to study Music Education/Performance where he studied with Lisa Rogers and Alan Shinn. He was a member of numerous top notch ensembles including The Goin' Band from Raiderland, Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Jazz 1, afro-cuban ensemble, Percussion Ensemble 1, and many jazz combos. It's in these years that he found his true love for drum set. Tony can be heard saying, 'I know how to play all percussion instruments, but I can really speak to people with my drum set playing.' Since 2004 Mr. Garcia has been a percussion specialist for LISD and has helped with 6 th -12 th grade percussionist in the Monterey High School quadrant. He has received multiple division 1 ratings from State Solo and Ensemble competitions, UIL concert and marching competitions, among others.

This was a classic rock power trio that taught him about great bands like Cream, the Who, Jimi Hendrix, Steve Miller Band, and of course the greatest of them all Led Zeppelin among many others. A couple of years later Tony joined Brandon Adams and the Sad Bastards where he got the opportunity to play on the road and record their first record. This group helped him realize his love for original music and so he then began working with more original artists such as Griffin Adams Band, Kent Mings Band, and Jenni Dale Lord Band whom he still currently works with the last two. Tony can be seen around town playing every venue from your local night club to your favorite restaurant to your prestigious concert halls and theaters depending on the night and gig. You might see him playing drums for a country band, rock band or cover band, or percussion for a musical or themed show. He can also be seen running sound for a School of Rock concert and giving pep talks to his SoR students and bands before their concerts.

      Kuhrt Cowan was born and raised and the small town of Borger, Tx. His parents were always pushing Kuhrt's musical interests at a young age by putting him in piano lessons and voice lessons. At his 10 year old birthday, his parents surprised him with a drum set and he instantly fell in love. Being in a small town, there were no places to take drum lessons. So Kuhrt started listening and playing along with his favorite artists, teaching himself until he was able to play percussion in his middle school band. From there, he started playing drums in several different rock bands and at his church. It wasn't until he was 17 that he joined the band A Road Less Traveled (ARLT), which he would stay with for 10 years. After graduating high school, Kuhrt and ARLT moved to Lubbock, Tx.

      Hailing from South Florida, Andrew Mason may well be the largest music teacher in Lubbock. He is currently a jazz/bluegrass student at South Plains College in Levelland. When he's not practicing for school, or teaching, you can find him feeding his coffee addiction/studying the effects of guitar tone on the human brain. Growing up with a multi-instrumentalist grandfather and a choir-singing mother, Andrew has been around music for as long as he can remember. He was dragged kicking and screaming, but had stopped by the end of the week. It wasn't until 2003ish that he found the local punk/grunge station and understood his purpose. It was then that he forevermore bound himself to the guitar. He has since picked up the bass and the mandolin to further incur his musical wrath on all willing to listen.

      Yesterday, I was invited by my friend Amy to watch her daughter's ' School of Rock ' concert. What I (along with several hundred other people) witnessed was absolutely awesome! As a matter of fact, my faith in the youth of America was slightly restored. I'm not kidding. Here's why'¦ All of the kids bring their own instruments, play their own instruments and, most importantly, know the history behind the songs and artists that they play. We're not talking about Justin Bieber or Jonas Brothers or some other pop group. These kids are playing Hendrix, Blondie, The Ramones, Cheap Trick, The Beatles and other acts that made music what it is today.

      I have to say thanks to all the kiddos that were so hospitable on Saturday during Lemonade Day. I probably visited a dozen stands that day, and have to admit that I will probably never drink lemonade again (12 glasses in a row will do that to you). But all the stands were awesome and the kids were too cute.Also, kudos to all of you who stopped by and gave the kids $5 for a 10 cent glass of lemonade. I don't know how many people I saw generously pay $5, $10 even $20 for a glass of lemonade, telling the kids to keep the change. Lubbock people rock.

Testimonials

  • “It is hard to articulate the pride you feel as a parent when you see your kid perform on-stage. As a music teacher for fifteen years, it is easy to say that choosing the Downingtown School of Rock for our fifteen year-old son, was indeed, the best parenting decision we have made yet. ”
    — Susan B., parent, Unionville, PA
  • “When we decided to send our daughter to SOR, we never imagined what a positive impact that one decision would have on her life. She transformed from a shy, quiet kid to a confident, incredible musician, with an active social life and many close friends she considers her second family. The amazing memories she’ll always have of touring and performing with the All-Stars at world-renowned venues and festivals are just icing on the cake. ”
    — Karla D., parent, Unionville, PA
  • “I wish I had School of Rock when I was growing up. ”
    — Nearly Every Parent Who Walks Through Our Doors
  • “School of Rock has been a great community for these kids. It is an alternative to extracurricular activities that a lot of these kids can really fit into where they might feel out of place in other arenas. ”
