Customer Testimonials

Amazing things happen when students enter the Princeton School of Rock. They transform from kids taking music lessons to performing musicians. What sets this program apart from other music schools is that in addition to regular instruction the students participate in weekly show rehearsals. It is in these rehearsals where the students help push each other to grow and make the songs come together. The outcome is not recital - the outcome is a full fledged rock concert!

I am very glad to be associated with Princeton School of Rock. My son, Sarvesh thoroughly enjoys his lessons with Mike and looks forward for the rehearsals every Saturday morning. Two aspects that stand out with regard to the exposure that my kid gets at Princeton School of Rock are jamming with a group of students during rehearsals and secondly here the learning happens as a matter of fun!! In fact he started recently, 4weeks ago with drumming and has a window of opportunity to try his hands with the various numbers. It is great to be part of fun learning at Princeton School of Rock with able tutors who are friendly with kids and bring the best of the talent in them!! Thanks Princeton School of Rock and Sarvesh looks forward to be learning and performing with Princeton School of Rock team.

My son's been going to the School of Rock for six years. He's 13 now, and is a guitarist, drummer, and singer. He's got musical and performing skills that'll last a lifetime, and he knows more about classic rock than most adults I know. School of Rock rocks!
