Method Books:
Available to all students except Rookies: The School of Rock Method Books are a series of proprietary method books written specifically for use between School of Rock students and their instructors. These books will give students access to a structured approach to music theory, traditional notation, and development of technique that puts expertise from across the School of Rock community into every lesson room in addition to the insight of each individual instructor. The books are a tool to increase the depth of students’ understanding, organize the presentation of key topics, document and motivate student progress, ensure a well-rounded approach to each students’ education, and reinforce and expand on the techniques and concepts within students’ assigned songs and parts. There are five levels of book for each instrument (guitar, bass, drums, keys, and vocals), which each level covering increasingly more challenging and complex material. 

Method Apps:
The School of Rock Method App is a revolutionary tool created specifically for School of Rock. The Method App contains all of the musical exercises from School of Rock’s proprietary Method Books, allows School of Rock instructors to assign these exercises to their students, and features revolutionary tools to aid students as they practice at home. The Method App also contains part-specific transcriptions for over 1,000 popular songs that are core to School of Rock’s performance-based curriculum to help students learn their assigned songs in preparation for their performance. And of course, parents have full visibility to all activity in the app. 

Download the app in the Google Play or Apple App Store! Found under: "School of Rock Method App".

Important note: in order to use the new tools we have available, you'll need access to Pike13.  Please ask the front desk to resend you a welcome email if you've never claimed your account. This is the site where you'll be able to to see scheduling, billing, lesson notes and more!

You must claim your Pike 13 account in order to access the app!


Are You Ready For Grad School? The Fun Begins in November!

Have you always wanted to learn to sing or play an instrument but felt it was too late? Or has your guitar been gathering dust because of the craziness of daily life and your “real job”? Maybe you are a “weekend warrior” who would like to gain some new musical skills and knowledge, as well as some new friends and musical contacts? Have you ever wanted to play a rock show at a real rock venue?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above, the Grad School program at the School of Rock is for you. This program will help you gain new musical skill in both private lessons and in a group setting. You will learn from experienced teachers, who are all working musicians and will help you gain real-world knowledge, new musical skills and contacts that can help you start, resurrect or enhance your musical pursuits.
