I love the camaraderie of the students. I love their performance program...the students get to apply what they've learned. The staff member there have been so helpful and treated us like family. The General Manager that was there, Billy Power is missed so much. Huge thank you to Ray Saada, Eric Reynolds, Anna [LAST NAME REMOVED], Ryan Roberts, Erik Rudic and Karlee Bloomfield for all their incredible work keeping the school running in his absence.
It amazes me how the SOR instructors are able to work with a group of mostly inexperienced kids and get them to play songs in just a couple of months. Our son, who can be shy and introverted, has a great time, all the time.
Kids not only learn how to use their talents in a constructive setting, but they practice teamwork and acquire important social skills and experience in a musical setting. How many bands break up because of irresponsibility and drama? The answer is too many! This opportunity to practice accountability at a young age in a supervised setting is priceless.
I like that it's a program that my daughter can meet people outside of school and has the ability to advance her music interest in a fun social setting. I also think the performances at the end are great for confidence building.
We've had a great experience with SoR Red Bank for both our children for more than a year. We love the instructors Ms Des is amazing, the program and the music! Mr. Billy Power is great with the children as well as keeping the programs well organized. My kids have never wondered where they should be like they have at other programs. Also, this doesn't seem like just a job for anyone but an overflow of their passion for music and passing that passion on to the next generation. Thank you for all your hard work!
Everyone is very welcoming. Billy really helped ease my mind as a nervous mom and helped us settle in to the program. My sons teacher, Nash is extremely patient with his learning abilities and always gives great feedback after every lesson. In his short time at the school, my son has already learned so much and has something to look forward to every week. We would highly recommended this school to anyone for their child.
