We had the School of Rock franchise on our show many years ago. Since that time, the organization has had
tremendous growth. We are meeting with Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock. School of Rock provides students of all ages an
exciting and engaged music lesson experience, which includes guitar, drums, piano and singing lessons. Drawing from all styles
of rock and roll, School of Rock students learn theory and techniques via songs from legendary artists such as Pink Floyd,
Led Zeppelin and Frank Zappa.
Thanks to the school's performance-based
approach, students around the world have gained superior musical proficiency, with some moving to record deals and larger
platforms such as American Idol, The Voice and Broadway. The rapid-growing international franchise currently operates more
than 230 schools in 10 global markets, and since 2009, School of Rock has grown student count from 4,000 to more than 33,000.
