      Our resident "shredder" started his first band at the wee age of 14, playing 2 house shows and then calling it quits. This didn't last long when at 15 he joined a band called Mistaken, which he was a part of for 6 years. This band recorded 2 studio albums in Memphis Tennessee at the legendary Sun Studios, home to Johnny Cash, Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, June Carter, Roy Orbison, and many more. He has worked as a solo artist and played in a band called Marca, who had toured the area and played a lot locally. Max is currently involved in many, many music projects. He is playing with Allie Lauren, a pop/jazz project featuring a female vocalist/pianist, with their debut album slated to be released sometime this year. He is involved in a well known electronic trip hop group Count Your Curses, who have had collaborations with members from Destroy the Runner and Dillinger Escape Plan. He is also working on a melodic metal band called Brave Sailor. Max is excellent at tapping and mode variation, as well as song structuring, but can also teach the basics!

      Jennifer was born in Saint Louis, but mainly raised in Iowa. She was extremely involved in piano and competition vocal performance from the time she was 5 (and wishes there was something like the School of Rock when she was younger). After high school she moved to the Northwest Arkansas area for the first time on a whim, and loved it. After moving away twice, once to Minneapolis and once to New York, she has decided to come back for good. Always wishing she could find a career where arts and her particular organizational habits could be combined, the GM position at School of Rock is just what she has been looking for.

      Kirby started his music career as a trombonist in school band. Quickly deciding he wanted an instrument he could hit a bit harder (and not get in trouble) and play a bit louder, he moved to a full drum kit in sixth grade. He has been unstoppable ever since, touring in bands since junior high school and playing in groups that range in genre from southern rock to punk/hardcore. Kirby has toured the country, seen it all and played it all, and is so excited to be able to join his love of hanging out with kids and playing music here at the School of Rock!

      Ryan Brogan began playing drums at 13 years old, playing music with his brothers! They started writing original material and by 16 Ryan was touring. At 18 years old their band, “PM Today”, had released a full album independently and toured in support of the release. Three years later, In Medias Res, the second studio album was released on Rise Records.

      Ryan toured across the entire country, visiting and playing in every state excluding Alaska and Hawaii. He has played for 20 people and for 7000. He has played with local bands and with artists like Dustin Kensrue (of Thrice), Circa Survive, and Brand New.

      Cuinn, the youngest of our trio of Brogan instructors, began his musical journey with percussion in middle school band, laying down a solid foundation before picking up a bass guitar when he was 12, taking private lessons for about a year. He quickly changed to guitar, feeling the need to create his own music. With his brothers he began touring with their band “PM Today” as a sophomore in high school, managing his high education and beyond from a computer. In 2009 “PM Today” was signed to Rise Records, when Cuinn was just 17 years old, and they released one album, titled In Medias Res. After high school, Cuinn expanded his musical horizons, studying piano and saxophone.

      Cuinn continued to tour the country with “PM Today”, playing backyards to stadiums, alongside many different bands and genres of music. Always hungry for more, Cuinn studied composition and performance online at OMI, realizing that one of his favorite parts of music is composing. He also added musical software programming and synthesis from Lynda to his resume.

      Today Cuinn is still playing music and touring with his brothers, under the name “Move Orchestra”, writing and performing piano, guitar, and saxophone. He is always ready to talk rock, and also delve into more obscure genres with his students! He can also help with composition and song-writing, and loves to hear what students are working on!

      Tyler Tradewell’s musical career began in the form of poetry when he was only ten years old. He started reading Dickinson, Frost, and Poe, and was inspired by the way the stanzas worked together in rhythm. He began writing and soon learned that he could put his words to music, picking up the guitar when he was twelve.

      At fourteen him and some friends started their first band (“The Tristan Betrayal”) in which Tyler played guitar and vocals. This hardcore/metal band played shows, toured, and recorded an album before disbanding in 2010.

      While Tyler was still a part of this project he began writing softer, more acoustic singer/songwriter music (Don McClean was a huge inspiration), and recorded his first solo album, I’ll Believe Again, in 2009 and released it independently. Tyler continued to write his own music and play with other musicians, consistently pushing himself to learn as much as he could from other people and the world around him.

      A few years later he decided he wanted to challenge himself to learn piano, so he started with the classics-pushing himself to build a solid foundation in both theory and technique. In 2011 he released his second album: Where Beauty Goes.

      Tyler continues to write his own music and just released his third album, Stayed Too Long. He is also currently working on a two-piece ambient/rock project called “Foxwood". Tyler loves working with students of all ages (he directs both a Rock 101 and a Performance Group), and enjoys teaching the very basics through most advanced students!

Testimonials

  • “I can’t tell you what an enriching experience this has been for our whole family and especially for Josh. The instructors there were so much more than teachers for Josh, they were his idols and his role models. It has been an amazing time, and I know that as Josh gets older he will look back on all the memories he made at the SOR fondly. You have created something special there, and I hope you understand what an impact your efforts have had on the lives of these children.Thank you for everything! ”
    — Tim Gallagher, Father of School of Rock Denver student
  • “Carlson's time at School of Rock helped her recruit most of her current bandmates. It spurred her to apply to Berklee which, unlike other colleges that offer music majors geared mainly toward classical and jazz, offered the opportunity to train as a well-rounded musician. ”
    — Chelsea Carson, student from Long Valley School of Rock
  • “School of Rock is the best thing we have done for our three children. They learn self-confidence, teamwork, and musicianship in an environment that is safe and free of the typical age-barrier restrictions that are often inherent in other student activities. The youngest and oldest kids in the school work together and everyone is an equal on stage. I wish other youth activities were as welcoming. ”
    — Tony C., parent, Great Valley, PA
  • “School of Rock has helped develop my daughter's self confidence. She just lights up when she is on stage. I just love watching and seeing her growth as a person and as a musician. SOR is her second family. ”
    — Lori H., parent, Downingtown, PA
