For those about to rock, we salute you. For those who aren’t quite sure how to start a music school and turn it into a successful business, we’re going to tell you how it’s done, and why we’re ranked among children’s franchises as the No. 1 Child Enrichment Program by Entrepreneur magazine in 2017.

Even if you’re not familiar with the history of School of Rock the franchise, or School of Rock the Broadway musical, chances are you’ve heard of School of Rock the 2003 movie. We share a name and a rock ‘n’ roll spirit with the movie, but we’re also so much more.

If you’ve been looking for a children’s franchise that changes lives and has great earnings potential, School of Rock has figured out the winning formula.


Today, School of Rock teaches music to more than 26,000 students around the globe. We have over 200 franchises in ten countries and we’re continuing to expand. We are owned by a private equity firm, Sterling Partners, which provides us with resources a smaller music franchise wouldn’t have access to.

For more than two decades, kids have been learning how to channel their inner rock stars at School of Rock, and franchisees have experienced the joy of building a music-related business in the children’s franchises space that helps change lives.

Our leadership team is comprised of a group of experienced franchise executives who are either musicians themselves or deeply passionate about music and music education. Our performance as a franchisor has been consistently recognized in Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 rankings. We know our approach is still radical, even after all these years in business, and other companies are starting to imitate the way we do things. That’s okay; we welcome the competition.

We understand what it takes to succeed as a franchise, and we have a proven track record going back to the mid ’90s. Over the years, we have developed the techniques, the business processes and the franchisee-centric culture that provide you with a blueprint for your own success.

Best of all, you’ll be able to work in a music-focused business that helps transform children’s lives and makes a difference in your community. You’ll be able to employ 20 or so professional musicians as instructors, helping them further their musical careers. It’s an amazing franchise to invest in, and we have multiple opportunities still available.

Kids who are in those group programs stay longer, and they’re much happier with the experience that they’re getting.
