Why we’re the top franchise for music-lovers

At School of Rock, you don’t have to be a musician to join one of the most successful franchises in music education. Some of our franchise owners are parents who were impressed with how our rock school transformed their shy, isolated kid to a self-confident musician who performs with a band onstage. Other franchise owners are retired musicians or musicians who are still active, but looking to spend less time on tour.

No matter who they are, all our franchisees have one thing in common: they feel a deep connection to music and love being able to improve the lives of children in their local communities.

As one of the best education franchises around, we’re the original power player in a music industry segment that has wannabes and copycats. You thought you knew us from the movie that bears our name, but we go so much deeper.


When parents watch their kids perform on stage in a local venue to The Beatles or AC/DC, they immediately get that this is nothing like the piano recitals put on by other music schools. Our franchise music instructors are all professional musicians who teach familiar, fun and engaging music that children want to play and don’t need encouragement to practice.

They won’t be sitting on the edge of their beds glumly picking out “Mary Had a Little Lamb;” they’ll be practicing their power chords to Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A.”


My daughter looks forward to coming to every class! It’s the only thing she will not miss unless she’s ill! The fact that they get to learn every instrument and be with other children in their age range is just such an amazing opportunity for their self-confidence, which is key! My daughter just went on the stage and sang with her band, and she did an amazing show! She has just grown so much since starting this amazing program!

Who is School of Rock?

What Our Clients Are Saying

Every person at School of Rock is a motivating and positive influence on my kids! From the lessons and performances and interaction with other talented youth, it has been a very rewarding experience for our family.
— Karen Farrell, parent, San Diego

The lessons are made to be fun, to allow the kids to play music before becoming too academic as traditional music schools do. As in life, we learn to speak before reading and writing. School of Rock gets you to speak music before having to read and write music.
— Maurice Brisebois, parent, Winnipeg, Canada

The teachers get my kids. They know their strengths and their foibles. And they always treat our kids’ growth as students like they are in it for the long haul as much as we are!
