Depoimentos

  • “The School of Rock is one of the best kept secrets in the Crofton/Gambrils area. My 13 y/o daughter and I saw the sign from Route 3 and out of curiosity we walked in to check it out. We were met by a friendly staff member named Ian who was eager to answer our questions. We were hooked at, "hello". Ian provided a detailed description of the programs available at the School of Rock (SOR) in Gambrils and invited us to schedule a trial lesson. Additionally, he informed us that he would pass our information on to the owner who would contact us regarding our interests. Within 24 hours, I received a call from a very enthusiastic Kelly Mannix, the owner, who basically said everything that I wanted to hear and offered everything I was looking for in a Performing Arts School. My daughter, Corrine, attended the next available trial lesson and even though it was half way through the existing performance session, we joined immediately. Corrine was registered for weekly Performance and Vocal lessons. Corrine absolutely loves SOR, and the talented staff. She has also made new friends who share her interests in music, style and performing on stage. Corrine recently participated in SOR's very first Performance in May 2015, and is currently enrolled in the next Performance scheduled for September. However, this time not only is she enrolled in Performance and Vocal lessons, after seeing all of the multi-talented kids at the May 2015 Performance, she is now also learning to play the keyboard with no previous experience on keys. It was truly incredible to see the kids perform in multiple capacities. In fact, a close friend of Corrine's was a vocalist, drummer and played keyboard during the May 2015 Performance. She learned it all at SOR with no previous experience, just the interest, desire and support of a caring, competent staff. Additionally, Corrine is signed up for every week of summer camp offered by SOR. In summary, SOR ROCKS!, Corrine ROCKS!, And I highly recommend this local business. Come check out SOR and ROCK with us!!!' ”

  • “Love this place! My daughter has been in their Rock 101 program for two months. Every week she gets a 30 minute keyboard lesson and an hour and a half group rehearsal. She loves it. We came from a more traditional, classical piano school. She was never excited about going to her lessons. NOW, she looks forward to jamming with her band every week. Her teacher, Charlie, is amazing. He's great with the kids, and really shares his passion for music with them. Every staff member has been so kind, and so responsive! Emails and calls are always returned, and they have even worked with me to switch lesson times. I even love hanging out in the parent's lounge...where I am typing this review and listening to my daughter rehearse right now. :) Looking forward to my daughter's first performance at Union Jack's in Annapolis!. ”
    — Grace R, Crofton MD
  • “I like the "real world" experience kids get playing with others in a band setting. It takes learning music out of the dry & sometimes frustrating setting of learning on your own, and introduces the exciting experience of crafting some "joyful noise" with other musicians. There's nothing like that; it's what playing music is all about. ”
    — R. Timm, Gambrills, MD
  • “Wonderful people and so much fun! Teaching rock and performance skill in a encouraging way. My daughter loves the instructors and the entire program. ”
