About School of Rock

Paul Green began offering music lessons out of his home in 1998, and in 2000, he opened the Paul Green School of Rock Music in Philadelphia. He opened more locations and began franchising the schools in 2005 before being bought out by investor Sterling Partners, who changed the name to School of Rock. School of Rock music schools teach guitar, bass, vocals, keyboards and drums, combining weekly private music lessons and group band rehearsals to prepare students for live performances. Day camps are also offered during summer, winter and spring breaks.
