title: School of Rock
In 1998, School of Rock's first location was built in Philadelphia to strengthen students' self-confidence, develop their musicianship, and most importantly, spark an insatiable enthusiasm to learn. Today, the School of Rock franchise has branched out to more than 65 locations throughout the United States and Mexico. During the school's music lessons, encouraging instructors well versed in methods of rocking and rolling—such as strumming guitars, tickling keyboards, and causing avalanches with yodels—demystify music theory for mini Mick Jaggers of all skill levels.
School of Rock's Rock 101 program acquaints beginners with the instrument of their choice using a curriculum of weekly private lessons and group band rehearsals. Virtuosos ready to hit the stage can participate in the performance program, which prepares students for live performances that pay homage to beloved rock icons such as Queen, Led Zeppelin, and Mount Rushmore.

New England Studio of Music founder Alisa Luciano took her first piano lesson when she was 4 years old, sparking a lifelong love of music. She would go on to study under numerous pianists, including Svetozar Ivanov, before getting her master's degree in teaching. Since 2003, she's been teaching students as young as 4 years old themselves, passing on her life's work to those of all ages. In addition to piano, the studio offers lessons for voice, brass, strings, guitar, and woodwinds.
