School of Rock, the leader in performance-based music education with over 325 schools across 15 global markets, is looking to expand its presence in New York City to meet the demand for quality music education programs.


“New York City has always been a hub of creativity and a mecca for music lovers, with a rich history of genres such as jazz, rock, soul, R&B, and more. From the bustling music scene to the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit of the city, NYC has been home to some of the greatest music minds in the country,” said Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock. “At School of Rock, we are committed to providing students with unparalleled access to music education, while also creating opportunities for aspiring business owners to join our franchise network. 


“As I prepare to open my sixth School of Rock location, I often ask myself “why”? The answer is always very clear. Being an owner has allowed me the opportunity to not only bring the joy of music into our community but to introduce our students to a universal language that helps integrate them into their community,” says Monica Rubin, owner of multiple School of Rock locations across Long Island and Queens, New York.


The initial investment for a School of Rock franchise is approximately $395,800 – $537,400 including a $49,900 franchise fee. Ideal candidates, or group of investors, will have a net worth of $350,000, of which $150,000 is liquid. Additionally, Veterans receive a special discount on their initial franchise fee.
