New afterschool program is ready to rock in Mason

MASON, OH (FOX19) - An afterschool program held its grand opening on Saturday.

School of Rock Mason kicked off the ceremony with a ritual guitar smashing. Live bands, including bands featuring school instructors, performed at the event.

"I am excited to bring School of Rock to Cincinnati. It will be unlike any other music offering in the Greater Cincinnati area, distinguished by its program, faculty and facility. I intend to open several more in the area over the next five years," said franchise owner Tim Garry.

The school believes the best way to learn music is to play music. During the program, students perform at real rock venues for a live audience. If you would like more information on the program, you can visit their website here.
