      Pat starting playing guitar at the age of 5, inspired by the Gene Simmons' KISS solo record. His first guitar was a tennis racquet. His second guitar was made out of cardboard, using yarn for the guitar strap, and colored with Crayola markers. His first real guitar was a Yamaha nylon string 3/4 size. Totally an instrument of rock (sarcasm). Many years, many guitars, and many lessons later he attended Berklee College of Music in Boston. Pat played professionally throughout Northwest Missouri with the band Furley (yep, Don Knotts), and worked in the radio industry at KY-102 (Kansas City), 95.3 WAOR (South Bend, IN), and PYX 106 (Albany, NY). In 2004, he opened Funky Munky Music in Shawnee, KS. He sold that in 2012, and is now scalloping his fretboard in the world of School of Rock !

Testimonials

  • “School of Rock has taught me how to perform in public with self-confidence. ”
    — Dan, 18, Downingtown, PA
  • “School of Rock. The best music school anywhere. This whole idea of getting kids not just taking lessons and learning notes and chords, but learning songs and playing with other young musicians, and getting out on stage… I was so impressed that my daughter Cheyenne goes to School of Rock on Long Island. ”
    — Dee Snider, Twisted Sister
  • “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." ”
    — Trisha Ybarra-Peters, Leesburg, VA
