      School of Rock Legend!
      After graduating the Princeton School of Rock, Billie taught at the Doylestown, Philadelphia and Princeton SoR’s, but Princeton will always be his home. From a young age he was always surrounded by music, either from helping his father with his sound engineering company or attending many shows his mother, father and grandfather performed. He really found his love for music in middle school though. At the time, bands like My Chemical Romance, Green Day and Foo Fighters were all over the radio and he started picking up bass and guitar to learn songs by ear. It was only in high school that he attended the Princeton School of Rock, but he credits much of his skill and knowledge to the instruction he received there. Now, after performing, touring, recording, engineering and releasing albums with his band True Will and many others, he is glad to be able to give back to the program that did so much for him.

      Megan has been involved with the School of Rock for about 9 years. She showed up as a student at 13 years old with 2 years of bass and 4 years of flute under her belt. As a child, she was a lover of visual art, which has translated to her love of music, acting, and cosmetology; she's always been destined for a life indulgent in expression, and she'll take it in any form she can get it: singing, painting, makeup, the stage; she loves it all. Over the years, she picked up a multitude of instruments, including guitar, keyboard, vocals, and ukulele (not to mention a short spurt of drums and a 3-month long battle with the saxophone thanks to a Green Day Dante convinced her to learn). Thanks to her training both while at School of Rock and after, she's been in countless bands and had the opportunity to work and surround herself with some of the greatest musicians in the world. When she got to highschool, she started getting more serious about studying the voice and how it functions. She took voice classes under the tutelage of Betty DeMonic, and eventually Lamont Caldwell, until she graduated.

      Raghav has been a student at Princeton School of Rock since he was 5. He’s taken guitar, bass, and drum lessons. At the age of 9 he became the youngest student accepted into the School of Rock All-stars Program.The All-stars partake in a tour each summer with the best musicians and vocalists from the international network of schools, which included performances at the Lollapalooza Music Festival in Chicago and Gathering of the Vibes in Bridgeport, CT. During his time at School of Rock Raghav has had the opportunity to play with John Wetton of Asia, and Guitarist Earl Slick and countless talented School of Rock Students.

      While most of our students take some time off for a vacation Raghav has been spending his summer on Broadway in Sir Andrew Lloyd Weber’s School of Rock The Musical, where he makes use of all of his drum lessons playing Freddy the drummer. In his time there he has had the honor of performing for and with Steve Smith of Journey, Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash, Alex Lifeson of Rush, and Heidi Klum! He also had the experience of a lifetime performing live on the Tony Awards.

      All of us at School of Rock are so proud of everything Raghav has accomplished and we look forward to all that you do in the future!Read less

      MACH22 will be opening for Guns 'N Roses and Wolfmother this Thursday July 14th at the Lincoln Financial Field! We couldn't be more proud of the individuals we've seen grow here at the Philadelphia and Princeton School of Rock and this is just the icing on the cake. From students to teachers, MACH22 has a long-standing and enriched history with Philly SoR and in the city, in general. Let's take a gander.
      Lamont Caldwell, MACH22's founder & singer, has been teaching at the Philadelphia, Princeton, & Doylestown School of Rock for many years now while simultaneously driving his band to success. Having played and toured with The Roots, Jay-Z, Dave Matthews Band, and more, Lamont is no stranger to the spotlight. He certainly deserves to be standing on that stage on Thursday amongst the rock 'n roll idols. Lamont has become an idol to many of the students at the school seeing how hard work and dedication within the music world make the big difference. Having his second son most recently with his lovely lady, Lamont is a rock star both on and off the stage, in the truest sense of that very definition.
      Ric Haas joined MACH22 recently as a guitarist with a huge grin on his face. He essentially graduated from school straight into being in the band and immediately took it to the next level. He was a standing member of the Philly House Band, School of Rock All Stars who toured the country, and is now an intern at the Philly School. He also just recorded parts on a record for Dee Snider, so he's not just turning heads here but all around. Ric embodies what the Philadelphia School of Rock is and what it means to be a part of this family. From a very young age it was pretty clear that Ric was going to be doing great things and this is only one example of that coming to fruition. He's a full package of amazing talent, stage presence, and a good heart to round out what truly sets him apart.
      Sebastian LaBar plays guitar in MACH22 and he's help build their sound to what it is today. Also coming from the Philadelphia School of Rock as a student, All Star, then as an instructor, he's built up the stamina to run the gamut in this music industry, no doubt. LaBar rings a bell you say? Well, his father is Jeff LaBar from the legendary band, Cinderella. That's right, the apple never falls too far away from the tree. Sebastian is carrying the torch for a new generation of rockers.
      A big congrats to MACH22's Damian MonteCarlo (drummer) and Jaron Gulino (bassist) who have put their blood, sweat, and tears into helping this band get to where they are now; and moreso, where they are going. The pair are quite the rhythm section to be reckoned with, indeed. MACH22's roots with the School of Rock go even deeper as former members include guitarist Ty Asoudegan (instructor at Philly & Princeton) and Chris Seeland (student & instructor at Princeton).

Testimonials

  • “Amazing things happen when students enter the Princeton School of Rock. They transform from kids taking music lessons to performing musicians. What sets this program apart from other music schools is that in addition to regular instruction the students participate in weekly show rehearsals. It is in these rehearsals where the students help push each other to grow and make the songs come together. The outcome is not recital - the outcome is a full fledged rock concert!”
    — Karen Reading, Princeton, NJ
  • “I am very glad to be associated with Princeton School of Rock. My son, Sarvesh thoroughly enjoys his lessons with Mike and looks forward for the rehearsals every Saturday morning. Two aspects that stand out with regard to the exposure that my kid gets at Princeton School of Rock are jamming with a group of students during rehearsals and secondly here the learning happens as a matter of fun!! In fact he started recently, 4weeks ago with drumming and has a window of opportunity to try his hands with the various numbers. It is great to be part of fun learning at Princeton School of Rock with able tutors who are friendly with kids and bring the best of the talent in them!! Thanks Princeton School of Rock and Sarvesh looks forward to be learning and performing with Princeton School of Rock team.”
    — Sathya Shankar, Plainsboro, NJ
  • “Princeton School of Rock has done some pretty amazing things for my son since he enrolled a year and a half ago. He came in with several years of private guitar lessons under his belt, but had never actually played with other kids or in front of an audience. School of Rock made all the difference in the world! Not only has his playing improved dramatically, but he has acquired a stage presence that to me is nothing short of amazing. But the kids don't just learn music and performing there, they learn real life lessons. How to be a team player, how to mentor younger and more inexperienced kids, how to be a role model. Most importantly, they make lasting friendships with other like-minded kids that they never would have met otherwise. Princeton School of Rock truly is a family - the kids, the staff and the parents are all some of the most amazing people I have ever met. I just wish we had found it sooner!!”
    —Emily B, Hopewell, NJ
  • “Princeton School of Rock—both camps and individual lessons has become the complete music education resource for our son. The staff are kind, encouraging and empowering. The kids are dedicated and excited—it’s an incredible atmosphere for kids who love rock and roll music and want to be part of a community. Our son is consistently inspired by everyone there, he has expanded his instrument base and learned about how to blend commitment with passion all while having more fun with friends than we ever imagined”
    — Shari and Rob Short, Pennington, NJ
