The Individualized attention to detail, meeting each individual at their needs is truly exceptional. I love the way the program instills a confidence and comfort to perform in front of others and in themselves. The lessons coincide with the band and they still find time to put in some extra fun and challenges for the children!
Creative and fun way for kids to learn about music & performing! Our boys love it, both learned an instrument & one has been having vocal lessons in preparation for OCSA. Also the band aspect has taught them about teamwork and collaboration!
The staff is friendly, supportive and fun. My daughter gets the support and encouragement needed to keep her interested and trying to learn the guitar. The shows have allowed her to face her fears and grow confidence.
There is nothing we know like it. Kids get to really work on performing in a rock band. There is no fluff. They use the time well, and the end result feels real to my child: he's in a rock band, showing off what he can do and enjoying making music.

School of Rock teaches students not only how to play, but how to perform. The shows being held at real concert venues complete with colorful stage lighting really provide an authentic and exciting performance experience for students and their audience. The kids learn confidence and showmanship as well as their songs. They also learn to work together as a team, equal partners in making the music sound good. Students learn to "cover" a wide variety of rock artists, expanding their knowledge of styles and laying the groundwork for becoming working musicians with their own bands when they get a little older. Finally, close friendships are formed at the Tustin School of Rock, and kids feel safe and happy being there. I can hardly get my daughter to go home, even after several years. Its been a great experience for her overall and I can and do recommend SOR to anyone who'd like to be in a rock band. As a music teacher, I've had many people tell me they "wish they played an instrument". School of Rock is one fun way to make that dream a reality.
