School of Rock, the leader in performance-based music education with over 322 schools across 15 global markets, is looking to expand its presence in the Boston and Providence metropolitan areas to meet the demand for quality music education programs.
"Our franchisees come from a variety of backgrounds, but what they all share is a passion for music and a desire to improve lives through the power of rock 'n roll," said Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock. "We coach and guide each of our franchisees to be successful. Our ultimate goal being that together we can help aspiring musicians master skills, unleash creativity, and develop the tools they need to thrive in life."
With more than two decades of experience, School of Rock offers entrepreneurs the opportunity to quickly plug into a global brand with a proven business model. In addition to music education, prospective franchise investors have the ability to positively impact the lives of their students and the community as a whole.
"As a former professional musician, high school mentor, and entrepreneur, School of Rock is the perfect project to combine my three passions. It's very rewarding to watch our students go through all the phases of their musical journey," said Dave LaSalle, owner of School of Rock Attleboro. "Owning a School of Rock is so much more than the music played. We provide a safe place for youth and teens to develop musically, socially and learn many life lessons. At times, we don't see the impact that we are making on a child's life until a parent shares an intimate story with us."
School of Rock's approach to music education is unique. Whereas traditional music education approaches focus on teaching music only through one-on-one lessons, School of Rock's METHOD™ combines one-on-one instruction with group rehearsals and live performances, starting students on their musical journey by playing songs that inspire them. The integrated SongFirst® approach teaches students techniques and theory while also helping them apply those skills when performing with other musicians. This results in remarkable musical proficiency.
The initial investment for a School of Rock franchise is approximately $395,800 – $537,400 including a $49,900 franchise fee. Ideal candidates have a net worth of $350,000, of which $125,000 is liquid. Additionally, Veterans receive a special discount on their initial franchise fee.
School of Rock provides students of all ages an exciting and engaging music education experience, which includes bass lessons, guitar lessons, singing lessons, drum lessons, and piano lessons. Drawing from all styles of rock and roll, School of Rock students learn theory and techniques via songs from legendary artists such as Aretha Franklin, Lenny Kravitz, and Led Zeppelin. Thanks to the school's performance-based approach, students around the world have gained superior musical proficiency, with some moving on to record deals and larger platforms such as American Idol, The Voice and Broadway.
