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.
When students come to Joe Hastings' lessons, some of the first things he asks are "Who are your favorite singers or artists?" and "What are your favorite styles to focus on." Why? Because he knows that when a student plays what they want to play, rather than suffer through rounds of "Greensleeves," they'll keep playing. Having taught over 25,000 private lessons since 1992, Joe has every style of music and every breed of guitar down pat. In private lessons ranging from acoustic guitar, electric, and bass to 12-string, banjos, lap steels, and even the finicky dulcimer, Joe's students learn how to play quickly and efficiently. Lessons also delve into music theory, pattern recognition, and muscle memory, and handily take place within the music-only confines of
