Carrie Lozier began by teaching students how to play piano from her home studio in 2003, with just 10 students on her roster. By 2011, Lozier Music had 70 students enrolled and new digs of its own. Staff began by teaching only piano, using the Simply Music method, which emphasizes being able to play music before being able to read music, in the same way children learn to speak before they are able to write long letters to the editor about rescheduling Yo Gabba Gabba during naptime. Some of the concepts of this method is translated to other instruments, where classes mirror four steps on learning to play. First is immersion, where students up to age 5 get comfortable being surrounded by the sounds of music; then introduction, where they learn to makes sounds with instruments; finally, musical instruction followed by integration, where musicians learn to play together with other musicians.

Miss Jessie, Miss Mandie, Miss Karen, Miss Michelle, Miss Megan, and Miss Sharon have spent their entire lives learning, teaching, and playing music. Thanks to that devotion and a shared passion for helping children learn and grow, their paths have crossed as Kindermusik educators. At locations in Canton, Farmington Hills, and Southgate, the six women lead musical programs designed to foster each child’s cognitive, social, and physical development. Students sing, dance, and listen, and do so in an environment that is free from the pressures of performing or becoming the Internet’s most popular meme.
In 1998, School of Rock's first location was built in Philadelphia to strengthen kids' 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.
