Best Music Studio For Kids.

School of Rock is the best studio for kids to learn their craft. The teachers are excellent and the kids' musical talents are nurtured in a fun, inspirational and supportive environment.

Caring and professional staff.

My son's favorite part of the week is knowing he will be attending his band practice and one-on-one instruction. He told me that he can now be himself and not shy because of School of Rock.

A Supportive Learning Environment!

In the short time my son has been with School of Rock, he has gained confidence and he’s highly motivated to practice his vocals in order to become a better performer. We both love that it’s a pressure-free, supportive learning environment.

What a great program!

The kids learn not only music, but performance and team work. It is a positive, supportive experience and we think it builds confidence. Plus it is a blast for the parents!
