School of Rock 25th Anniversary 01/11/2024

Ever wonder how School of Rock became a global music education brand?

Teddi Tarnoff was one of our first students. Her mom enrolled her in guitar lessons 25 years ago. Now, Teddi's journey has come full circle - she's the Regional Manager at School of Rock Las Vegas West and School of Rock Green Valley.

Hear more about her story and School of Rock's journey to becoming the most revolutionary music school in the world:

We can't help but rave about the incredible culture that Shelly Norehad and her team has cultivated at School of Rock Highland Heights in Ohio. Here's what one parent had to say about their experience:

"We wanted to give a special shout out and thank you to Alex and Jess, Holden's instructors, who have been absolutely amazing with him. They're always so encouraging and the knowledge they share and patience they have with their students is astounding. Holden feels so "at home" at School of Rock. That's because the culture of the school is one of acceptance, encouragement, and positivity. That's what ALL the instructors, and Louie and Allison, have created. I sent the video of Holden's performance to my sister in Seattle and she was so touched by all of the older students on the sides and front of the stage rockin' out as Holden bravely performed his original song he was so nervous to do. Thank you for the opportunity you all give to students to be themselves, grow their confidence, and of course, learn to value the gift of music."

If you're looking for a place where your child can grow their musical skills while being part of a welcoming community, School of Rock is the place to be.


Today in music history, The Beatles started recording their 12th and final chart topper album, “Let It Be”. Footage was recorded from these studio sessions to later make documentaries about the band.

Recently, the House Band students at School of Rock San Jose had the privilege to perform at an event for a non-profit organization that supports families facing housing challenges. The experience left an indelible mark, not just on the families they played for but also on our students. Here are unfiltered sentiments from some of San Jose's House Band members:

"Performing at the Family Supportive Housing event was a rewarding experience. Seeing the kids in the front row rockin' out was quite inspirational. I wouldn't mind performing there again to just see the kids enjoying themselves listening to the music. Supporting families going through tough times is always a good thing in my book. I truly hope everyone enjoyed the event as much as I did."

"It was one of the most rewarding gigs I've ever played. For me, playing music is about the faces in the audience and making sure they are having fun, and just seeing the eyes light up in the crowd was amazing. I would love to play there again!"

"I thought it was really fun to do, and it made me feel so good to do it for a good cause. They all seemed like they were having fun, and seeing all the kids having fun too made it really fun for me. I really hope we play there again."

"It was awesome performing and bringing something positive to the kids and parents we performed for. They are not as fortunate as us, and performing for these kids was something special that they will not forget, so it was awesome to make a positive impact on them."


This is Samantha, one of our top keyboardists AND bassists. Sam has been with us a while and her talent and work ethic are unmatched. Here is one of her favorite memories.

"My favorite memory was the Jam Bands show. It was the best show I have ever been in and it truly made me a better musician. Specifically, the song Jessica by Allman Brothers had the hardest piano solo I have ever heard, and it took me months to learn, but at the show it really paid off."

This is Dar, one of our best guitar players, and a member of our elite House Band. Here is what his mother had to say about our programs.

"School of Rock has brought so much to my son’s life. He is in a band with other SOR kids. He has been on tour and made friends with kids from one end of Memphis to the other. An amazing experience! It has been so fun to watch him grow as a musician."

Favorite moment: "House Band playing 'Guess Who' by B.B. King at MoSH Planetarium! I will never get over that haunting and beautiful performance."

School of Rock families don't just show up, they show out - with a wealth of support and homemade merch!

The parents and families of School of Rock students show up in full force to every event and performance. One family, whose young guitarist attends School of Rock Folsom, shows their support by creating custom tour tees and wearing them to his shows.

Jaxon aka Jax Man, picked up a guitar at age 7 and has been nurtured by a family that is deeply rooted in music culture. His grandma attends music festivals and concerts across the country, and his family regularly exposes him to the music they love. Jax's progress has astounded his school's staff - from leading solos to mastering intricate guitar techniques after just one season 🎸

Safe to say he will be bringing a big crowd for School of Rock Folsom's next show!

“Guitar Hero was such an important tool for exposing kids from the late-’90s to the electric guitar. We’ve got some guitar heroes now – 10 years ago, we didn’t”: Michael Rubin went from playing video games to rocking vintage guitars with 12/14/2023

Michael Rubin started out at School of Rock as a student, then teacher, and now he's being interviewed by Guitar World.

Michael, the guitarist of the rock and roll band, King Falcon, started his School of Rock journey as a student, but before that, his love of guitar began with the video game, Guitar Hero. Since then, he's traded the guitar-shaped controller for a pretty sweet vintage guitar collection - and one of those, a 1957 Fender Stratocaster, has a unique story behind it.

In the flurry of holiday shopping and gift-giving, here's a reminder that the best gifts are priceless.

Henry, a student at School of Rock White Plains, recently approached Jeff Silverman, the school's owner, and asked if he could take home a broken guitar so that he could try his hand at repairing it. Henry took it home, replaced the neck of the guitar and returned it a few weeks later. When he brought the repaired guitar back to the school, he also presented the old guitar neck to his school's staff. He had transformed it into a remarkable hanging trophy, commemorating the school's 5 year anniversary.

Etched on the back are Henry's heartfelt words: "To School of Rock and Jeff. Thank you for 2 years of fun, music, and learning about being a musician! I hope to stay with SOR 'till I go to college. Thank you!!!! - Henry M"

This trophy now stands proudly in the White Plains lobby for all to see. But it's more than just a display piece – it's a symbol of the lives we change through music every single day.


musig! that’s what we do best (other than spelling)!

Tammy, organized by Larry Burch 11/30/2023

Your support is needed: help our student recover from a tragic accident.

Just over a week ago, a School of Rock student named Tammy was struck by a trolley while crossing the street. She was swiftly attended to by incredible first responders and thanks to their immediate actions, she was quickly transported to the local hospital, where she remains under intensive care today.

Tammy is facing a strenuous journey to recovery and requires extensive surgery and treatment for injuries, putting an enormous strain on her family.

To support Tammy's family during this challenging time, a GoFundMe page has been set up to assist with the overwhelming medical expenses that continue to mount. Your generous contributions will directly aid in covering the costs of her current care and the future treatments she requires for a full recovery.

Tammy's father says, "I understand that times are tough for many, and it's never easy to ask for assistance. However, any donation, no matter the size, will make a significant difference in Tammy's journey toward healing and rebuilding her life."

Please consider donating at, sharing this post, or leaving a positive message for Tammy and her family in the comments below.
