Elk Grove & Sacramento Music Lessons – Swap screen time for stage time!

School of Rock Elk Grove – Swap screen time for stage time.


These days, virtual experiences get passed off as the real thing. But not here. At School of Rock, kids have real fun learning. Here they play actual instruments, not game controllers. Here, garage band is a thing kids form, not simply download. And here’s where they can develop the confidence and charisma that wins them real followers, not just the online kind. So what’s better for your kids — screen time, or stage time?

Our Approach

The conventional way to teach music? Push students to master musical concepts before letting them play music they like. But we’re unconventional: Here students start by learning to play and perform songs that inspire them. In the process, they learn the music theory that they need to get better. Build the confidence that comes from being onstage. Discover the ability to work with others. And enjoy the friendships and sense of belonging that come with being in a band. It’s that approach that’s made School of Rock the world’s largest music education company.

Our Programs

We believe incredible things happen when kids get together onstage. That’s why performance is at the core of everything we teach. It’s the best way for kids to learn music, and a clear path for them to develop skills that will help them in all aspects of life. Skills like collaboration, which we foster by integrating students of various skill levels in every band we form. This promotes mentorship and leadership in more advanced players and accelerates the progress of beginners. And regardless of skill level or age, all of our students learn one thing above all: How to have fun playing music.

Our Lessons

At School of Rock, kids can learn to play whatever interests them: guitar, drums, bass, or piano/keyboard. We also offer singing/vocal lessons. But no matter what kids choose to learn, our goal is the same: To do everything possible to encourage their passion for music and their love of performing. That’s how we believe music should be taught — and why our kids can’t wait for school to be in session.

Our PERFORMANCE-BASED APPROACH develops both their confidence & musicianship.

Through our performance-based approach to music instruction, School of Rock students are more inspired to learn, more motivated to excel and more confident as a result.

We believe the best way to learn music is to play music. We take students from the lesson room to the stage, developing both their confidence and musicianship with programs designed for all skill levels.

School of Rock teaches guitar, bass, vocals, keyboards, drums and combines weekly private music instruction and group band rehearsals to prepare students to take the stage in front of live audiences in an authentic concert setting.

To date our students have played thousands of concerts, to more than 100,000 people, at such legendary venues as CBGB’s, The Trocadero, The Knitting Factory, The Whiskey, The Roxy, The Experience Music Project, The Big Easy and BB King’s Blues Club in Times Square. We have also had the great fortune to be able to perform at music festivals from Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits, to Zappanale in Bad Doberan, Germany.

Our immersive method inspires our students to be their best. We get them playing music as quickly as possible because we know that is what they want to do. As a result our students become more interested in the theory of music.

We deliver an authentic experience using professional equipment, a staff of seasoned musicians, and performances on real rock stages, at real rock venues in front of real live audiences.

Our instructors live to play and play to live. They are experienced professional musicians that can instruct students on the finer points of their instrument, while at the same time educating them on everything that goes into putting on a great live show.

We teach and perform music that our students love to play and our audiences love to hear. From the fundamental roots of rock and roll through classic rock, funk, reggae, heavy metal, alternative, indie and prog rock – we share, engage and celebrate it all.

Be happy and play music. Guitar, Bass, Drum, Vocal, and Keyboard Lesson in Elk Grove, CA

Be happy and play music. What people are saying about School of Rock.

School of Rock is the best thing we have done for our three children. They learn self-confidence, teamwork, and musicianship in an environment that is safe and free of the typical age-barrier restrictions that are often inherent in other student activities. The youngest and oldest kids in the school work together and everyone is an equal on stage. I wish other youth activities were as welcoming. ”Tony C., parent, Great Valley, PA

“I can’t tell you what an enriching experience this has been for our whole family and especially for Josh. The instructors there were so much more than teachers for Josh, they were his idols and his role models. It has been an amazing time, and I know that as Josh gets older he will look back on all the memories he made at the SOR fondly. You have created something special there, and I hope you understand what an impact your efforts have had on the lives of these children.Thank you for everything!” ”Tim Gallagher, Father of School of Rock Denver student

“School of Rock has taught me how to perform in public with self-confidence.”— Dan, 18, Downingtown, PA

“You want your kid to be passionate about something, whether it be sports, scouts, dance or whatever. School of Rock does this for my son. We have discovered a talent we didn’t know he had. My son would live at School of Rock if he could. We’ve already recommended the program to several friends. ”Susan Snyder, Clifton, VA

Elk Grove Music Lessons - School of Rock Elk Grove

Why we decided to bring School of Rock to Elk Grove, CA

Why School of Rock? We wanted to be involved with a business that we could be completely passionate about. There are so many franchises available that boast big profits and forecast huge success, but none of them made us excited like School of Rock did. We are a husband and wife team (Jason & Cecilia) and currently own a small business in Elk Grove, CA called AXE HEAVEN. Built from the ground up with passion for music, products, and people has made our AXE HEAVEN business a success. Building a business is so much more than turning a profit. From the very beginning and to this day we are very passionate about offering a product/service that makes people excited.

Passion, is where it all starts. With any great idea you have to be passionate about what you are building and love what you do. After our very first visit to a School of Rock we knew that we wanted to be part of this organization. Seeing the kids run through the hallways racing to their next guitar, bass, drum, vocal, or keyboard lesson was nothing less than incredible. After hearing countless stories of how School of Rock changes kids lives for the better by putting kids on stage and getting them involved with peers. We are excited at the opportunity to bring this music school to Elk Grove, CA.

We have always loved music and are proud parents of twin boys, Lucas & Lennon. Our boys are 4 years old and having kids helped us ultimately start our School of Rock. Elk Grove needs a music school like this and we are beyond excited to help be the music in our community. Please like our School of Rock Elk Grove Facebook page and see the exciting process of building one of the coolest music schools in Northern California.
