Michael really enjoys his lessons and the friendships he has made. Zack is a wonderful instructor. I can't believe how well he is playing after less than 6 months! Thanks to everyone for all their hard work and dedication.
The instructors are my favorite part. They dish out positive reinforcement like candy on halloween. You can really tell that they love music and are really interested in sharing their knowledge. They answer all questions. They work with you to come up with adaptations to songs that are difficult. It really is a joy to work with them. I will definitely recommend this location to other people. Shout outs to Rachael, Becca, and Dillon, they are my favs!
My son loves his instructors, the new director and the fact that they ask students for input about songs - they aren't always able to do they songs they want, but at least they feel they have a voice. Additionally, the school maintains a safe and comfortable environment where ALL kids feel welcome.
The camaraderie and the creativity that is inspired throughout the intensive musical experience of the week! The kids are so motivated to "be a band" that can perform, in a week's time, that they enjoy every minute of the process of "learning" without even realizing that they are...it's not like any lesson they have ever had. They not only learn from their teacher(s) in a relaxed atmosphere, but they also learn from each other and how to work as part of a group to achieve their own goals! My son loves it!
My 13 year old son has found a home away from home at SOR. He has developed a meaningful mentor type relationship with three of the school's instructors. His music abilities absolutely blow me away. His confidence has grown most importantly.

The teachers are awesome and show a true passion for music! The performance programs give the kids an opportunity to play at great venues. I like that the program teaches many genres of music. Overall it's a great place for kids to learn and grow their musical talent.
