“I have to say that although we travel 30 miles one way, bringing my son to The Detroit School of Rock of Rock and Pop Music was the best thing we ever did.”

“My 13-year-old daughter has been enrolled for just a few months and she has already performed live at the Hard Rock Cafe and the Palace of Auburn Hills!!!  No other “music school” in the area can generate these incredible opportunities for its students.  Jason Gittinger and his staff have far exceeded my expectations.  Long live DSRP!”

“Grownups are entitled to rock out, you know.  But if you’re not in high school or college, and you want to play in a band just for fun, good freakin’ luck.  Are you going to answer some ad in the Metro Times?  Really?  Jason’s DSRP provides the matchmaking, the facilities, the instruction, and the motivation to make it happen.  I had a great time and would recommend it to anyone.”

“The Detroit School of Rock and Pop has been a Godsend for my son, Dan (age 13). Jason and his instructors are able to see not only Dan’s talent and drive but also his future potential and they take the time to figure out what steps need to happen to get Dan there.When Dan leaves his private lesson he is so excited about what he has learned and can’t wait for more.”
