      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.

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.”

  • “My son's been going to the School of Rock for six years. He's 13 now, and is a guitarist, drummer, and singer. He's got musical and performing skills that'll last a lifetime, and he knows more about classic rock than most adults I know. School of Rock rocks!”
    —Cary Sullivan, Hopewell, NJ
  • “Our son Corey felt different from the kids in our community. He didn't play sports like them and needed an outlet where he could show his true talent on the drums and feel comfortable with his peers. School of Rock Princeton has given him the opportunity to make friends and jam on the drums to his favorite rock classics. This school has definitely boosted his morale and has given him the confidence. He doesn't feel different when he is there because the kids there are just like him, Future Rock Stars doing what they love to do!!”
