  • “Just wanted to take a minute and express to you how much that School Of Rock East Cobb has meant to Seth as well as our entire family. This school is just not all about music but it is about friendships, team work, and work ethic's. It has truly been a God send opportunity for our son, Seth. See in life we should teach our children that it takes hard work and honesty and dedication to succeed in this world and sometimes life is just not fair. I truly believe that School of Rock East Cobb is run with all this in mind and we thank you for that. Seth has really grown as a young man and he loves the School Of Rock East Cobb as well as the music and each one of his band members. And he thinks the WORLD of Maxine...as we all do. It has been such a great pleasure to watch him and each one of the kids grow and gel together each time they perform. To see how far Seth has come and where he is going really warms our hearts and the fact that he and the rest of the band are playing CLASSIC ROCK well that's just icing on the cake.”
