March 16, 2023 // // PALOS VERDES, CA - School of Rock announces the grand opening of a school in Palos Verdes, CA. The event will take place at877 Silver Spur Rd, Rolling Hills Estates, CA, from 10 am - 2 pm PT, on Saturday, March 18.

School of Rock Palos Verdes is owned by Jeff and Melinda Doll, who are both lifelong musicians and performers. Melinda, a classically-trained vocalist and pianist, and Jeff, who started playing multiple instruments before discovering his true calling as a drummer, lead their family band with their five talented children. In 2014, while living and performing as a family band in Modesto, CA, the Dolls saw the potential of a music program for children that prioritizes performance and a song-first teaching approach. They then discovered School of Rock and its curriculum and music philosophy. Despite relocating multiple times for work, Jeff and Melinda held onto their dream of opening a School of Rock that caters to children who share their passion for music. In March 2020, after moving to Los Angeles, they embarked on designing and opening School of Rock Palos Verdes.

“We're thrilled to bring School of Rock to Palos Verdes, and we're grateful for the opportunity to share our passion for music with children in the community. We believe music is a powerful tool for self-expression and personal development. We're excited to help children discover the joy of music through School of Rock’s patented and performance-based teaching approach. Our goal is to create a fun and supportive environment where students can learn and grow as musicians while building confidence and making lifelong friends," said Jeff Doll.

School of Rock provides students of all ages an exciting and engaging music lesson 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.

“Jeff and Melinda are exactly the type of people we look for to lead a School of Rock franchise,” said Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock. “They are passionate about their community and eager to provide opportunities for students to further their music education. I look forward to watching School of Rock Palos Verdes grow as their students thrive.”
