Policies- Updated 1/12/24

Welcome to School of Rock! Thank you for entrusting your musical education to us. Please refer to this information regarding school policies.


Monday - Thursday: 3:00PM-9:00PM, Saturday: 9:00AM-4:00PM
Closed: Friday and Sunday

We are closed for the following holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Juneteenth, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day We do not offer makeup lessons for the holidays listed. Because School of Rock is billed monthly, there are typically about four months out of the year when a student may receive five lessons per month at no additional charge. This balances out any missed holidays and we strive to ensure that every student receives an average of four lessons per month over the course of a show season.


All of our instructors are working musicians who tour, record, gig, and occasionally get sick. This means that your child may have a substitute for lessons and rehearsals occasionally. We believe that substitutes can greatly benefit our students by supplying a new perspective on their progress as a musician.

  • Bills are due on the 1st of each month via autopay from an on-file card or bank account.
  • A 3.5% processing fee will be service fee on all purchases made using the following credit cards: Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. No fees will be charged on purchases made with a bank debit card.

  • In the event of a same day cancellation, even though a make-up lesson will not be issued, you will still need to call or email and let us know so we can make the teachers aware.
  • Make-up lessons expire after one month.
  • Make-up lessons can only be used with a current membership.
  • Make-up lessons cannot be stored in lieu of a monthly payment.

In case of inclement weather, lessons will be offered remotely or make-ups will be issued. Inclement weather changes will be communicated via email.

We like to get loud when we play music here, so we require all students in rehearsals or on stage. All students must have some form of ear protection. Please see the front desk for purchase.

Playing and caring for your own musical instrument is an important part of performing and music education. Students should have their own instruments and accessories needed to practice at home, rehearse and perform. Guitarists and bassists should have and bring their own guitars, basses, picks and tuners. Singers should have and bring their own microphones. Keyboardists and drummers should have instruments at home to practice (we will provide keyboards and drum kits for lessons, rehearsals and performances.) Drummers should bring their own drum sticks to SoR.

Students who are interested in purchasing instruments through School of Rock can visit our online catalog here: https://www.schoolofrock.com/music-instruments-gear


You can have access to your schedule, bills, and forms of payment through our scheduling program, Pike13. You can login here: https://baltimore-sor.pike13.com. You will also need to sign a waiver issued by Pike13 once you sign in. This step is CRITICAL in accessing our SOR app and supplemental learning materials.


Each student in Performance Program, Rock 101, and Adult programs are required to purchase a show fee for each season. The amount will be communicated at the beginning of the year and upon enrollment. This fee will cover the entirety of each season a student is enrolled in a performance band, and covers admission to Preview and Final Shows. Students and families can invite as many guests as they like.
