A Chat with The Schoolhouse of Rock
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Unlike other music schools run by corporate entities, we are a collective of teachers who love music and love to teach. It’s no wonder that we have such a high student retention rate. The Schoolhouse of Rock is proud to have Grammy winning alumni. How many other schools can say that?
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
All our students need to bring is their desire to succeed. During the lesson we provide the instruments, the amplifiers, the microphones, the keyboards and the inspiration. However, bringing a notebook wouldn’t hurt.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
When we started the Schoolhouse of Rock, we thought to ourselves: Why do music lessons have to be boring? What is the point of studying music if you walk away in tears? The Schoolhouse of Rock was founded on the idea that music lessons should not only be educational, but fun and inspirational.
What do you love most about your job?
We love waking up in the morning knowing that for the rest of the day we will be playing & teaching music to kids and adults and inspiring them in ways we can’t even imagine. We wake up because of music. We love instilling that kind of love for music in our students. It’s the best job in the world.
