      Dave, A Boston native, has been a lifelong supporter of the city’s music scene since the day he snuck into the legendary rock club, The Rat, at the age of 9 years old. With a curiosity for the relentless stylings of punk music, that first punk band that Dave snuck in to see was a young and unknown group called, Dropkick Murphys.

      Dave’s professional career began in Bunker Hill Community College where he studied and excelled at entrepreneurship and management. While at college, Dave sharpened his skills in the campus Business club where he quickly became President for the remainder of his education. Parallel to his studies, Dave held the position of Store Manager at a well known bakery in Boston’s prestigious North End. Along with the owners, Dave, helped to design, staff and market the new location. With the hunger to explore all facets of the business, he eventually stepped into the role of Sales Coordinator in the wholesale/manufacturing side of the bakery world and was quickly promoted to Office Manager of one of the most successful wholesale bakeries in New England.

      With his education behind him and his continued dedication to the bakery, Dave created his own marketing contracting business. His mission was to help local small businesses develop a stronger web presence and promote awareness for themselves. A point of pride was the creation of the annual SAPD Sean Collier Memorial Scholarship Fundraiser which raised funds to help Somerville, MA high school seniors pursuing a career in law enforcement. The fundraiser for the fallen MIT Police Officer has raised over $23,000 to date since it’s inception in 2013.

      First and foremost, Dave and Bill share the same last name, Galatis, as first cousins. Second, they share a passion for music, having both been in rock bands in the better part of their teenage and adult lives. Dave has played bass guitar in numerous punk bands in and around New England and currently lends his voice & guitar to the SOR Lynn Adult Band. This led them to a momentous breakfast in the Spring of 2014 where the synergy for their mutual love of music and proven business endeavors was apparent. School of Rock Boston Marketing Director was added to one of Dave’s many titles, thus contributing to the decision to have Dave spearhead school number 2, located in Lynn, as General Manager.

      Having opened in the Spring of 2015, alongside Music Director Pat Speece, Dave has constructed an extraordinary and flourishing school in Downtown Lynn. Call it serendipitous, Dave has hosted members of the Dropkick Murphys family here at the school for all the students to enjoy. If you’re lucky, you may also catch Dave on stage sitting in on vocals for Dropkick from time to time.

      Pat Speece has been in the School of Rock family since 2004. After being inspired and impressed with seeing the Philadelphia school's student concert, he began as one of the very first students at their 2nd ever location in Downingtown, PA.

      Bill opened up the Watertown School of Rock in 2007 as the Music Director, and it stands as the first School of Rock location in all of New England. For the next 5 years he ran the school with the help of the late Anderson Mar, and continued to teach lessons daily, direct 2-3 ensemble rehearsals weekly, run summer camps, choose the seasonal curriculum and hand picked his magnificent staff. In October of 2012, Bill set his sights on owning the school outright. He succeeded in becoming the owner of the Watertown School of Rock and as of March 2015, he has opened his second school location in Lynn, MA. Bill is a Massachusetts native, and has been heavily involved in music and art since his elementary school days. He started on the cello and saxophone in the 3rd grade, having been a part of concert and marching bands well into his teens. The exciting jump to the electric guitar, at 16 years old, was made after he was persistent in bringing rock guitar music to sax lessons. "Why don't you just play guitar?!?!?" the instructor said. He soon saved $75 for his first electric guitar, and the rest is history. Within 6 months, he was performing in a rock band. Bill's experience on the guitar comes from various teachers, band mates, musical acquaintances and his beloved music collection. He's a firm believer that music can be heard anywhere and everywhere. He has love for everything from Black Sabbath to Bjork, gypsy jazz to classical, Seattle based rock to Frank Zappa, film scores to "Weird Al" Yankovic. Being 100% Greek, he's also been exposed to Hellenic traditional and hymnal music his whole life. Bill got his undergraduate degree in Art with a minor in cinema studies and a concentration in computer animation. He studied it's many forms, including the music theory, as well as it's therapeutic side and it's healing and meditative qualities. He has been privileged to share the stage with such musicians as Mike Keneally, Cave In, 24-7 Spyz, Suicide City (composed of members from Biohazard and Kittie), Pray for the Soul of Betty (lead singer is American Idol finalist, Constantine Maroulis), Jesse Dee, Creeping Death (Metallica Tribute) and many more. Some of his own outfits include Mr. Bruce (singer/guitarist/co-writer), Rogue Donut (singer/guitarist/co-writer), Audible Crayons (bass/co-writer), An Evening with Black Sabbath (tribute band guitarist), Sleeprunner (singer/guitarist/writer), March of Sound (guitarist/co-writer), Ugly in the Morning (Faith No More tribute band guitarist), The Rise Park (bassist), Throe (session guitarist and co-writer) and Shaman/The Straight Down (guitarist/vocalist/writer). Bill also released a solo album at the end of 2012, under the moniker of "WCG." Currently, Bill continues to participate in several studio projects in his free time as well as getting involved in film.

      John began playing guitar at 15, and by 19 began serious study into the classics and into jazz. Originally influenced by rock guitar players of the 70s and 80s , his studies led him to a lot of the modern crossover jazz artists and those who influenced them. He developed a particular liking for Miles Davis' music and the groundbreaking artists he shared stage and recordings with. The list goes on and on.

      Making a living as a music instructor and playing in local Top 40 and general business groups, John quickly realized how absolutely essential reading, writing, and grasping advanced concepts of contemporary harmony were to his studies and continued success in the field, so he taught himself by analyzing and transcribing melodies and solos, arrangements, and chord progressions in jazz music.

      This led to his entrance to the Berklee College of Music via several scholarships, and he entered as a Junior. While there he discovered a love for the technology used in the making of modern music and made the decision to become an Electronic Music Production and Design major. He distinguished himself by winning the Peter Gabriel Production Award and graduating Summa cum Laude with a BA in EMPD and minor in Jazz Composition.

      Upon completion of his studies, John was hired as a sound design engineer by a company initially helmed by visionary Ray Kurzweil--Kurzweil Music Systems. There he and the rest of the sound design team developed products and sound libraries that would be mainstays to artists ranging from Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails to Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, Andrew Lloyd Webber, and composers for TV and film as well. The results of John's and the other sound design engineers' R&D can be heard in blockbuster films, productions by PBS, Discovery, Bravo, MTV, HBO, etc. Most recently, John was the Lead Sound Design Engineer for audio content developed for the Kurzweil Forte stage piano, nominee for a 2014 TEC award. The Forte was described as “the do-it-all performance keyboard” by Keyboard Magazine. Ask.Audio had to say “hats-off to the sound design team at Kurrzweil.”

      Having spent several years in R&D, John wanted to get back to what he loved to do most-- teaching, performing, and writing music. A close friend recommended that he check out the School of Rock, and that a musician like him would thrive in the environment there.

      From the second he walked into the School of Rock Boston, he knew he was home.

      While maintaining an active presence in R&D as a consultant, John continues to make education, composition and performance a priority, guiding people of all ages and backgrounds towards their musical goals and beyond.

      Kim is a Florida panhandle native who relocated to Boston in 2007 to attend Berklee College of Music and now considers New England a second home. She comes from a musical family and had the love of music instilled in her at an early age. She became interested in music as a career after her first live concert seeing Chicago and Earth, Wind, and Fire at age 11. These horn heavy groups inspired her to pick up the saxophone, which she continued to study through high school and college.

      Following high school graduation, she attended Stetson University in Central Florida studying classical saxophone. After her first semester she felt that the classical genre was not fulfilling, and searched for an education that matched with her interest in contemporary music. This led her to Berklee College of Music where she continued her studies in wood winds, vocals, and piano, and songwriting while majoring in Music Education. Upon graduation she taught music theory, appreciation, and vocal and piano performance in the Boston Public School System to both the general population and groups of special education students.

      Kim has been actively performing in entertainment groups in New England on lead vocals, keyboards, and saxophone since 2011. She is thrilled to be able to share her love of music and performance with the students at The School of Rock!

      PHOTO BY PAULA MULLER
      Backed by Noel Rudloff on guitar and Brad Ayers on keyboard Melina Laganas hit a high note for the Lynn School of Rock’s David Bowie show.


      BY GAYLA CAWLEY

      LYNN — Fran’s Place was rocking on Sunday night with the sounds of David Bowie, or more fittingly, his alter ego, Ziggy Stardust.

      The School of Rock Lynn, “where students learn to rock their world,” presented its first show of the season at the pub, including 15 students ages 10 to 18.

      Thomas Wallace, 17, a junior at Lynn English, said before he found out about the school, he was taking guitar lessons but wasn’t too connected with the instrument.

      “I fell in love with the way they teach and the way they get us on stage performing,” he said.

      Tira Rock, 18, a senior at Lynn Classical, said she always liked playing guitar before joining the school more than a year ago. She liked the vibe of the show and venue.

      The performance was a tribute to Bowie, featuring songs from his 1972 album, “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.” The disk tells of Bowie’s other persona, Ziggy Stardust, a bisexual alien rock star whose job was to bring rock n’ roll back and save the world from Armageddon. In the Stardust story, the world would end in five years because of a lack of natural resources.

      The album featured the singles, “Starman,” “Rock n’ Roll Suicide” and “Suffragette City.” It was praised by critics and named the 35th greatest album ever by Rolling Stones Magazine.

      Dave Galatis, the school’s general manager, said the group rehearsed every Saturday for three hours over four months to prepare for the show. When students sign up for the school, they choose between two themed shows offered that season. The tribute to Bowie was chosen following his death in January, when organizers searched for ideas.

      The second show, featuring a different group of the school’s students, is the Clash vs. Ramones, set for next Sunday at Koto in Salem. Some of the Lynn kids are also joining the School of Rock Boston’s Best of Season Show at the Hard Rock Cafe.

      Each student received 10 free tickets for family and friends. Everyone else was charged $10. Any money raised will go back into the school.

      Galatis said the Bowie show featured a rotating cast of students. The opening act, the Show Team, was also comprised of the school’s students, featuring the older and more advanced ones from the program.

      He said the program features beginner to advanced musicians. The goal is to get the kids out of the house and on stage as much as possible, he added.

      “Our goal is to kind of provide an outlet not only to build yourself as a musician, but to build yourself as a person,” Galatis said.

  • “You want your kid to be passionate about something, whether it be sports, scouts, dance or whatever. School of Rock does this for my son. We have discovered a talent we didn't know he had. My son would live at School of Rock if he could. We’ve already recommended the program to several friends. ”
    — Susan Snyder, Clifton, VA
  • “Our son explored many other extra-curricular activities prior to SOR, and no other activity was able to keep his interest. He has been challenged with new material, gained a foundation in theory and songwriting, as well as learned how to work in a group with other students to put on phenomenal rock 'n roll concerts in real" concert venues." ”
