Testimonials

  • “The programs at School of Rock introduce kids to all aspects of learning and playing music. Whether it's independently or cooperatively in a band. Their niche is the performance program. Kids are introduced to various types of music, learn to play together and perform at various concert venues in town. It's an enriching experience that any child could benefit from. There is no better feeling than watching your child performing on stage as part of a band.”
    — Kathryn Lambos, Seattle, WA
  • “I love how they make the kids feel empowered – it’s centered around them and the instructors really engage at the student level. I also like starting with the songs instead of with the technique. It keeps them more engaged and they feel like there's a point to learning the technique as part of the song.”
    — Maile Bohlmann, Seattle, WA
  • “I like the fact that the teachers are totally committed to giving the kids a strong foundational experience in music, and that the teachers are so good with the kids!”
    — Tim Sadler, Seattle, WA
  • “The SoR staff is outstanding. They are all talented musicians who have excellent teaching skills and are well suited to instruct kids. My kids have enjoyed their instructors tremendously, and have learned to love good music and are self-motivated to practice and be part of a band. The performance based learning has elevated their interest in becoming musicians. As a parent, I have enjoyed the entire program and process. Seeing my kids inspired and making friends with peers along with watching their confidence increase has been magical. I have also had extremely positive experiences working with the SoR mgt helping to direct and place my young kids into appropriate groups to enable fun, comfortable and inclusive transitions.”
    — Laurie Brown, Seattle WA
