FACILITY

We are conveniently located in Royal Oak, right in the middle of the Metro Detroit region. 

The Building

There’s 3600 Square feet of musician’s nirvana. If there’s a need for making music, we have it covered.

Teaching Studios

Our teaching studios are spacious. We mean big. Really big. These rooms were purpose built to give you room to stretch out and learn without hitting your guitar on the walls.

Pro Gear

We keep nothing but professional gear in our arsenal. No kid’s toys here. You’re practicing to be one of the greats. You should be playing on the same gear as them.

More Than Basics

We don’t just have the basic gear needed to make great music. We have nearly everything any professional production facility would have to produce a recording or show.

Recording Studio

Whether you need recording time to produce a college audition demo, or you need a full-on professional production team to manage a global audio project; we have done it all. Contact us today!

The students of The Detroit School of Rock and Pop Music get the studio every Monday evening as part of their programs! Studio Circle is a free club for all students where they make projects come to life each week.

FACILITY PHOTOS

There’s a comfortable lobby with couches, free WiFi, bathrooms, and usually water and coffee in our kitchenette. Once in a while there’s even cookies!

The Detroit School of Rock and Pop Music building has children musicians in the building at times, so we are drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and firearm free and reserve the right to censor music lyrics should they involve profanity or hate speech. We maintain a positive and professional environment at all times.
 
Availability on weekdays is generally during the day, or late at night (after 9:30pm) as we operate as a music school in the early evenings. Friday’s and Weekends offer a little more flexibility.

    “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.”
