School Of Rock, an international franchise that operate over 100 schools throughout the United States, Canada, and Latin America, is opening a branch on Douglass Street in Gowanus. School Of Rock offers after-school music education programming for kids by providing "individual music lessons taught by working musicians, group rehearsals, performance experience, exclusive limited access to the school and equipment during business hours, and branded merchandise for students between the ages of seven and nineteen."
The original concept for the school started in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1998. It began franchising in 2005.
From the school's web site:
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 lessons 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.

Brooklyn School Of Rock will be opening in March 2014. In the meantime, those interested can already book a trial lesson here.
