School of Rock Ashburn

We teach guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and vocals along with group performance and summer camps! Come rock with us!

Founded in 1998, our results driven programs combine one-on-one lessons with group band practices, making School of Rock the ultimate music school. for kids and adults.

About Us - School of Rock, the original School of Rock founded in Philadelphia in 1998, has now grown to 160 locations nationwide, including three in the Washington DC area (Ashburn, VA, Silver Spring, MD and Vienna, VA). Paul Green, the inspiration for the Jack Black character in Paramount’s hit movie “School of Rock”, created the school to help our students realize their potential as artists, to put them on stage in front of as many people as possible and to help foster a new generation of incredible musicians. The school performs hundreds of shows annually across the nation, and locally in venues such as The Rock and Roll Hotel, Jammin’Java, Arlington Drafthouse, Santa Fe Café, Ned Devine’s Irish Village, The State Theatre and Jaxx Nightclub, National Stadium and more... Our Performers – We have hundreds of students, aged 5 to 17, in our Washington area schools. From these we pick the cream of the crop to create a touring unit – our house band. In addition to the regular shows performed by all students, our house band plays in festivals, special events and as openers for larger acts. Our Music – We play classic rock covers in all rock genres. We customize our shows as needed for the event, but typically play one or two sets of 30-45 minutes each.

Mission: We create musicians.

Did you guess The Cure? If you did you're correct!

The Growlers: Your Best-Kept Secret Favorite Band

Super proud of School of Rock Ashburn Alum and bass player extraordinaire Brad Bowers who has been carving out his place in the music world. Check out this piece from NPR about his current project The Growlers. The California band's music blends lo-fi surf-rock, garage rock, Americana and psychedelic into something so unique it needed to come up with its own genre.


- Numerous films have been named after their song titles, including a 2005 film starring attorney Elle Woods, Napoleon Dynamite and The Huik
- For a brief period in 1989, This band could lay claim to being the biggest band in the world. That year they played a sold-out show at Wembley Stadium, followed by a gig at New York's Giants Stadium in front of 44,000 people (30,000 tickets had been purchased in one day). The lead singer later reflected gloomily: "It was never our intention to become as big as this."

VAN HALEN (And Friends!)

ATTENTION ALL TUESDAY STUDENTS: We are incredibly disappointed to announce that we are CLOSED Today, Tuesday Jan 7th, due to the inclement weather. We know this is your first day back in a couple of weeks, but out of an abundance of caution for our students and staff, we have opted to close. Please keep an eye on your inbox for information regarding scheduling make-ups for today's lessons and rehearsal. Thank you!

Can you guess what our first Spring Season band is? Here's some facts!:
- They are the 19th best-selling band/artist of all time with sales of over 56 million albums in the United States alone, and is one of five rock bands that have had two albums sell more than 10 million copies in the U.S.
- They had a provision in their contract demanding M&Ms backstage with the brown ones removed. This was a way of seeing if the promoters read the contract.
- They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007

We'll announce the first of our bands at 6 PM!

Attention School of Rock Tuesday students: We're monitoring the weather and will make a determination about being open or closed today by 1PM. Stay tuned to this page and your email inbox for our announcement either way.
