  • Locally owned and operated! - Only one... Only in Royal Oak!

    We are not a school of rock, but The Detroit School of Rock and Pop Music®. Our personal names are not on the outside of the building, because our school is not about us and our egos. We are all about our Detroit musical community as a whole. We are locally owned and operated by a family of life-long professional Detroit musicians who are dedicated to pursuing music at the highest levels and are committed to helping others do the same. We are Detroiters helping Detroiters. Come join us.
  • No cookie cutters allowed!

    We believe that music is an individual pursuit and can not be approached in a cookie cutter fashion. What works for some may not work for others, and we believe that all that matters is getting to the music. Many teachers only show their students what they like and enjoy, creating a cookie cutter of themselves. We however have a flexible curriculum that allows for individuals to pursue their own passions.
  • Stop Practicing... Start Performing®

    We believe that people learn by doing. In our short existence we have had students play on every major tv network, at every major venue, at many local festivals and charity events, on tour to other states, and on many recordings; all without ever charging our parents and families a dime to see us. While learning how to play our instrument is done in solitude at home, the motivation and inspiration to keep going only happens when you "Stop Practicing..." and "Start Performing!"
  • Access to Superstars®

    Through our Access to Superstars® programs,  our goal is to take ordinary people and make their lives extraordinary by giving them access to the people at the top. In the process, people are motivated, excited, and learn that through attention to detail, persistence, and a community spirit anything is possible.

Stop Practicing… Start Performing®


At The Detroit School of Rock and Pop Music® we teach people how to excel in music; whether you’re an experienced professional, a beginner, you’ve never played in a band before, or you’re completely scared to play in front of people.

So what does that mean?

At The Detroit School of Rock and Pop Music®, since the purpose is to play music, it means no un-motivating lessons, no sales pitches for new equipment, and no boring songs that aren’t relevant to your life. We’re here to provide the most exciting and motivating musical experiences with some of the region’s most successful producers and mentors.

That’s right. We’re here to ROCK, not sit around every week talking about it.

Now please understand; this isn’t some program where you show up when you want to, cancel within 24 hours notice and; when you do show up, come in having put very little effort into learning the material. This is an opportunity to play with other like-minded people, create an awesome production and sell it to the world together, with all of the excitement and enthusiasm you can muster! It’s a team effort and we at The Detroit School of Rock and Pop Music require a high level of excellence and commitment from all who are involved. We’re looking for folks who are tired of practicing for no reason, and want to start enjoying the benefits of working hard towards their dreams.

Click on Admissions and send us your info today. Then someone will contact you with more information about scheduling your audition and, once accepted, set you up with a weekly mentorship and production rehearsal.
