School of Rock Celebrates the Opening of 300th Location

Milestone school opens in Plymouth, MN

Global brand more than doubles student count and grows unit count by over 60% in five years, despite pandemic disruptions

October 06, 2021 // // CANTON, Mass. - In 1979 Neil Young sang that “rock and roll can never die” and School of Rock is proving the lyric to be true. The leader in performance-based music education is opening its 300th location in Plymouth, MN, this month. The milestone marks School of Rock’s progression to a scale that few franchises achieve and underscores the company’s position as the premier music education brand with more than 45,000 students rocking around the globe.

“At a time when so many businesses have been disrupted, this is a particularly gratifying milestone for the School of Rock community,” said Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock. “Reaching this scale speaks to the power of our concept and the relentless drive of our people. Few brands resonate equally in markets as different as Minneapolis and Madrid, but the School of Rock model has universal appeal.”

Jora and Adam Bart, the owners of the newest School of Rock, epitomize the franchisee talent. Jora has nearly 20 years of diverse experience in entertainment and sports promotion and Adam is a lifelong musician and songwriter.

“Opening a School of Rock combines our passion for music, people and making a difference,” said Jora. “One of my motivations for opening a School of Rock is to ensure that our three kids grow up to be kind and that they love music. It truly ‘rocks’ to open School of Rock’s 300th location and be part of this incredible organization.”

School of Rock provides students of all ages an exciting and engaging learning environment for taking guitar lessons, drum lessons, bass lessons, keyboard lessons, 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 Led Zeppelin, Lenny Kravitz, Aretha Franklin and Green Day. Thanks to the school's patented performance-based learning approach, students around the world have gained superior instrumental skills and confidence on the big stage, with some moving on to record deals and larger platforms such as American Idol, The Voice and Broadway.
