Who runs this place?
A bit of research is always good before parting with hard earned money for any endeavor – especially important with music lessons. At The Detroit School of Rock and Pop Music the owner and faculty are all highly trained and highly skilled professionals. Owner Jason Gittinger is a life-long musician that provides leadership and music experience that began pretty much at birth. The son of professional musicians, Gittinger studied Jazz Studies at Wayne State University and when he’s not teaching or performing the management tasks to keep the DSRP running, you’ll find him behind his favorite set of drums in scores of locations around metro Detroit and beyond. He owns, he teaches, he lives music.
Gittinger scours the local music scene for the best instructors to fill his classrooms. It’s not by chance that with these instructors come accolades from their “day jobs” as professional musicians. From every genre of music, these teachers bring real life experiences and job skills to the teaching classroom to build foundational techniques, sharpen the talent in front of them and challenge them beyond the practice room.
In balancing their performing life with teaching, the instructors are well rounded and successful.
In addition to Jason and his staff of teaching professionals, DSRP is constantly flooded with “alumni” who just can’t seem to leave the building. They enjoy the atmosphere, the teaching and the overall experiences that DSRP provides. They simply just keep learning and sharing with staff and new students.
Whatever you’re looking for music lessons or band and solo experiences, they can be found at the DSRP. And it is conveniently located at 1109 Washington Avenue in Royal Oak, just off of I-696. Right smack dab in the middle of Metro Detroit.
