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.

A two for one tonight!
How every teacher feels every student sees it. 🙄

We can't stop, won't stop with the dad jokes ever!

It's not failing...It's learning!🤘

It’s the 2nd leading cause of death for youth age 10-24. Even more disturbing are national surveys that tell us that 17.7% of high school studen...
