School of Rock Maywood is Ready to Rock N’ Roll

Maywood’s grand opening event includes live performances, tours and more

June 07, 2023 // Franchising.com // MAYWOOD, NJ - School of Rock announces the grand opening of a school in Maywood, NJ. The event will take place at 24 W. Pleasant Ave, Maywood, NJ, on Saturday, June 10, from 10 am - 5 pm ET. The event will offer live performances, studio tours and more.

School of Rock Maywood is owned by Mike Lisante, a lifelong guitarist who embarked on his musical journey at the age of nine. With a Master's Certificate in Guitar from Berklee College of Music, Mike's passion for music radiates in every note he plays. Over the last 24 years, he has been an integral part of a local cover band, continually refining his craft through captivating performances on stage. Prior to his venture with School of Rock, he spent 22 years as the Director of Operations for a renowned musical instrument fulfillment company. When the world was taken by storm by COVID-19 in 2020, Mike felt a calling to a more purpose-driven career, one that put human spirit above bottom line dollars. He crossed paths with School of Rock’s CEO, Rob Price, and felt instantly connected, which led to the opening of School of Rock Maywood.

“From the moment I joined the School of Rock community, I instantly felt a profound sense of belonging and familiarity. School of Rock Maywood is a place where music becomes more than just a lesson. It's a community that embraces and empowers, offering solace for the soul and a stage for belonging. Here, everyone is a rockstar, regardless of background,” said Mike. “With the power of music, we transform lives, forge friendships, provide a social outlet, and foster a sense of accomplishment. School of Rock changes lives. I know because it changed mine.”

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.

“There is a lot of heart and soul that goes into School of Rock,” said Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock. “Mike is someone who embodies this spirit. His passion for music as a gigging musician informs and inspires his effort. I look forward to watching his students thrive through music education and live performances.”
