Testimonios

  • “School of Rock is a unique program that inspires the kids in a way that can't compare to traditional "lessons". The feature of having a rehearsal each week, where they get to perform with others, in addition to a one on one lesson with an instructor, engages the kids on a completely different level. The kids also play out at public venues where they get to experience being on stage. My son is generally shy and loves to play guitar, I never imagined him on stage performing in front of people and enjoying it. School of Rock has brought out a side of him I'd never thought I'd see. He is confident, comfortable and has so much fun playing on stage. They have great instructors that teach and encourage the kids to explore all aspects of music. Thanks School of Rock for taking the love of music to the next level! Your Biggest Fans,”
    - Erica P. Parkland, Fl
  • “For many reasons, my daughter has been a part of this school and its programs for 4 years. She has grown and matured as a young lady. The music knowledge that she has received and been allowed to showcase is beyond measure. The instructors educate and mentor these kids in a positive way. Students are allowed to "be themselves" without judgement in this program, which helps them to socially and emotionally spread their wings and fly!! The School of Rock has opened many doors for my daughter. The managers, instructors, and owners want these students to succeed in LIFE! Through MUSIC, I have watched children become young men and young ladies. It is so rewarding as a parent to have this opportunity. I am grateful to be a member of this AWESOME SOR FAMILY!!”
    - Charmayne D. Cooper City, Fl
  • “"My son is musical Always has been. When he is home, he has an instrument in his hands...almost always. At 14, he has played in large venues, small venues, recorded music, has experienced the responsibilities of being a member of a band, has mentored younger musicians, I could go on and on...for all of this and also where he may go from here, we have the School of Rock to thank. Without the incredible people who have mentored him and instilled in him an indelible passion for music, he would not be anywhere near where he is today. It continues to be one of the best decisions we have ever made and we want everyone to know...if you want to do music, you need to do School of Rock."”
    - Mary L. Coral Springs, Fl
  • “"Our family is grateful for the skills that our kids have learned that are a byproduct of learning music. They've learned leadership, professionalism, initiative, selfdiscipline, and teamwork. We've seen these attributes show themselves at school and in their other activities, so School of Rock has been instrumental in making them into well rounded human beings, not just musicians. I can't recommend School of Rock enough. If every kid had access to School of Rock programs and instructors, our communities would be better places!"”
