I like the rapport Jim (owner) has with the parents and his staff. We very much like Brandon Morris, who runs the office, but also actively helps advise other instructors, even filling in for them for guitar lessons, etc., on occasion. We particularly like that the instructors have real music-world knowledge and college experience they willingly share with students interested in navigating a career in music.
SOR Denver holds expectations high in regard to student conduct, following through with consequences if necessary, keeping kids and rehearsals focused and productive. The high level of musicianship and proficiency, even in the "non-advanced" shows, is evidence of this. (As well, evidence of great instructors and directors)
Jim appreciates his clients --parents, and this comes through with every interaction. It's always a pleasure working with him and his staff!

It's amazing what you can teach the kids in a week. The Led Zepplin performance that they put on at the end of camp last week blew me away. They sounded like a real band! This was my son's third camp and I can see how his confidence has grown by being given a chance to be on stage as part of a real band. It's such a great growth experience for kids who want to rock!
School of Rock gives our daughter the opportunity to express herself in an environment free of judgement or criticism. She has grown in ability and confidence - both in performing on stage and speaking to the crowd. Onstage and offstage, her ownership about being a musician has blossomed. Friends talk with her about starting a band, but School of Rock actually follows through on that committment! Thank you for creating the environment where she can thrive!!
School of Rock puts kids center stage. In addition to offering private lessons, the School of Rock allows children to put their new skills to use with others. What better way to inspire your children with music than to get them together with others who love to play? My daughter has been with School of Rock for almost two years and it is the only program she wants to participate in year-round, without exception. The School of Rock rocks!
The instructors are great and my son loves learning in the band environment. The end of season concert at Herman’s Hideaway is so much fun and watching the talented older kids really inspires the younger ones.
All of the teachers are committed to inspiring passion for music in their students. They eat, breathe and study music all the time. I can't say enough good things about this school. If your kids are into music and want to improve their skills, this is the best thing for them.
I love that it provides a creative outlet - creativity is all too easy to lose if not developed. It also helps the kids learn to work both together and individually to achieve a common goal. Not only does this keep them engaged in something "meaningful" and fun - the skills they develop also transfer well beyond the lighted stage!
SOR is the most amazing place. I highly recommend it to any kid wanting to experience music. The community that comes with it is such an added Bonus. The Staff is so great. It’s a place where my kid can be creative and have fun while learning so much at the same time.
