About School of Rock Nashville

Welcome to School of Rock Nashville—a haven for aspiring musicians who love rock n’ roll. We believe live performance is the most fun and effective way to teach an instrument, which is why we get kids playing on stage as quickly as possible. Our classes are tailored to all age groups and levels of proficiency, and instructors are passionate about creating a legacy of music by helping students succeed in music and beyond.

We also believe that music is more than a solo act. That’s why School of Rock Nashville teaches kids to play alone and as part of a team. This approach promotes accountability, speeds up the learning process, and fosters an inclusive community of rockers in Nashville. Students are not only learning an instrument—they’re making friends, building confidence, and becoming better people.

      Angie has loved music her entire life. One of her earliest memories is listening to artists like Elvis Presley, the Doobie Brothers, Elton John and more with her parents and dancing around the living room as a toddler. Angie was involved in dance as a young girl for 10 years and started singing at the age of 5 and joined her church choir as the the youngest member at the age of 8. Growing up, music class was her favorite and she will never forget her first music teacher for helping her develop and nurture her passion for music while in elementary school. In middle school, Angie was a member of the Ketron Singers who performed at the World's Fair in Knoxville, Tennessee and continued to develop her vocal skills with private instruction from 6th grade all the way through college. Angie continued to perform in high school with her high school jazz band and secured a spot her junior and senior years in the Tennessee All State Choir, as well as a slot in the Tennessee Governor's school for the Arts.

      Heading into college, although Angie did not pursue a degree in music, she continued her vocal training and participated in many activities that allowed her to continue to sing on stage, as well as continuing to sing in her church choir and for other private functions. She went on to earn a Bachelor's degree in Medical Technology and worked in the pharmaceutical research industry for over 20 years. She did not, however, lose her passion for music and in 2011, after leaving her career in the pharmaceutical industry, she and her husband Kelly decided to open the first School of Rock in Tennessee in the Franklin/Cool Springs area and opened the Nashville location 2 years later. Having not been encouraged to pursue music as a career when she was younger, but to "get a real job", Angie is very passionate about providing this outlet for budding young musicians and has also seen both of her own children participate in the program and become School of Rock National AllStars in the process. Every day is a gift when she sees the students get excited about their music and performing in live music venues, and even when they get excited about just being in the building!

      Amberly Winfrey is a singer, songwriter, and teacher from Cincinnati, OH. With church musicians for parents, gospel music was her first experience with singing. Outside of church music, she was exposed to funk, soul, and R&B at home. In her early teens, Amberly began taking voice lessons in classical music, and singing in choirs, in addition to branching out into musical theater. At the same time, in a search for “heavier” sounding music, she discovered her love for rock.
      At Northern Kentucky University, Amberly received a Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance. Her time there was marked by countless opportunities for musical exploration and growth. For four years she was a member of the NKU Chamber Choir, and NKU Vocal Jazz Ensemble. Both ensembles toured and competed regionally and internationally, including gold and silver medal performances at the 2012 World Choir Games. Amberly also performed as part of NKU’s Opera Workshop, R&B Combo I, and JusTones New Music Ensemble.
      Outside of school Amberly sang in funk, jazz, Top 40-cover, and soul bands, participated in community theater productions, and worked as a soloist and chorus member for several churches in the Greater Cincinnati area. All of these diverse musical experiences have driven Amberly to seek out and create music that reflects the influences and sounds of multiple genres and styles.
      Combining her love of music with her love for teaching is something Amberly has found joy in for years. She has taught a wide range of students of all ages and voice types, with a very diverse range of musical interests. Now pursuing a Master of Music in Commercial Voice Performance at Belmont University, Amberly continues to pursue diverse musical experiences in her own writing and performance, and encourages her students to do the same!

      With roots in Dayton Ohio, this Midwest native was born with a passion for music. At a very young age, Erin showed extreme interests in singing, competitive dance, and songwriting. These musical affections lead her to study classical operatic voice at Wright State University. After desiring something “edgier”, she decided to embark to Nashville Tennessee, where she attended the prestigious Belmont University and graduated with a Bachelors of Music in Commercial Voice with a Performance emphasis.

      Shortly after graduating, Erin landed her first gig singing back up vocals for A Thousand Horses, touring with the talents of Darius Rucker, Brothers Osborne, and Cassadee Pope. At their premier performance at the Austin City Limits festival in 2014, Rolling Stone hailed the band as the best up-and-comer praising their "undeniable energy and stage presence for their live performance..." and of the back up vocals, "..three boho-chic backup singers whose head-turning gospel-style vocals added so much righteous padding to [the] frontman,”. She’s also sang back-up for Rayvon Owen (American Idol season 14) Lukas Nelson & The Promise of the Real, and local favorite’s, Friends of Lola.

      She now pursues her music career through her artistry and songwriting, performing with The Downtown Band (voted “Best Live Band in Tennessee” & “Top 10 Best Live Band in the United States 3 years in a row by The Industry Expert Awards), an award winning, high energy, dance driven band which delivers top quality live music entertainment.

      She is thrilled to be sharing her love of all things rock and roll with School of Rock!

      John O'Brien has spent most of his life making music. At the age of 10, he began learning the saxophone and started playing music through school programs. Picking up guitar by the age of 13, he knew that music would always be an important part of his life and sought out every opportunity to perform. School programs provided performance opportunities in wind ensembles, jazz ensembles, marching bands, pep bands, pit orchestras, jazz combos, show choir combos, and saxophone quartets. Still needing more, John would form his own bands outside of school. These bands would emphasize original material and range in styles from blues and jazz to rock, pop, and metal. Over the years he’s played hundreds of shows all over the Midwest, recorded several albums, and had his music played on commercial radio stations in Chicago and elsewhere.

      Originally from Chicago, John has made Nashville his home since 2008 and enjoys living in a city where live music is everywhere.

  • “The instructors are talented well seasoned musicians. I've noticed an increased confidence in myself when I play with other musicians. My experience with SOR has not only improved my skills but has made me an overall better musician. Didn't think that was possible for a guy my age but SOR gave me the chance to re-ignite that fire in my belly and never stop rockin .”

  • “My daughter takes voice lessons at SOR in Nashville. She LOVES her voice instructor. J.( my daughter) has been singing with her Dad and I since she was 2 years old. She needed more vocal instruction than I could give her when it came to breathing techniques. J's voice and breathing have improved tremendously since SOR. She is now developing her own unique style of singing. J. loves the casual but professional style of her instructor. It is a joy to see the look on J.'s face when she comes out of the room from a vocal lesson....she always has a smile on her face and can't wait to tell me all she learned and talked about with her instructor. It has been a wonderful experience.”
