“As School of Rock continues to touch the lives of students across the nation, we’re seeing a growing number of parents and grandparents enroll in classes and even open their own locations after they watch their children grow as musicians and perform the rock and roll songs they grew up listening to,” said Dzana Homan, CEO of School of Rock. “It’s truly remarkable to see how music touches the lives of all generations, and through this exciting new partnership, we’ll be able to engage young people and inspire them to share their amazing grandparents with the world.”
School of Rock Flower Mound co-owner Darryl Williams was inspired to bring School of Rock to his community after he witnessed his two grandsons build confidence and develop professional skills in such a short period of time. Through School of Rock’s unique programs, his grandsons were able to reach their dreams of becoming rock stars and spent the past summer performing at renowned venues across the country. Williams recently enrolled his granddaughter in School of Rock and even learned to play the bass so he can connect with his grandkids on a deeper level. The rockin’ grandfather also started a weekly jam session at the school for adults of all ages to come together and share their love for rock and roll music, creating the ultimate throwback experience.
