CANTON, Mass., April 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — School of Rock, the leader in performance-based music education with over 327 schools across 15 global markets, is looking to expand its presence in Madison, Wisconsin to meet the demand for quality music education programs.

“As we set our sights on expanding in this dynamic city, School of Rock is thrilled to bring our innovative approach to music education to even more aspiring rock stars. We can’t wait to see what kind of musical creativity will be ignited when the School of Rock spirit collides with the energy and passion of Madison’s music scene,” said Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock.

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. Through the power of music, prospective franchise investors have the ability to positively impact the lives of their students and their community as a whole.

“Our passion for helping students find their musical talent led us to join the School of Rock family over 12 years ago. Despite having no music background, we now own five schools in three states,” said Steve McFarland, multi-unit franchise owner. “We’re inspired by the unique and patented approach to teaching that School of Rock provides. Unlike traditional lessons, our song-first approach gets kids playing classic rock immediately and prepares them to experience the thrill of playing in a real venue.”

School of Rock’s approach to music education is unique. Whereas traditional music education programs focus on teaching music only through one-on-one lessons with an instructor, 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 brands’ integrated SongFirst® approach teaches students technique 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, or group of investors, will have a net worth of $350,000, of which $150,000 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.
