The children’s music educator has opened schools in Briarcliff and Deptford.
School of Rock, the children’s music educator, has announced the grand opening of two new locations in Briarcliff, New York and Deptford, New Jersey.
The Briarcliff location will host an event on Saturday, October 16 from 11 AM to 3 PM EST to celebrate the opening of the new school. Located at 127 Woodside Ave. Briarcliff Manor, NY 10510, the event will offer a live dance performance from Expressions Studio for the Arts, ribbon-cutting by the local government, and food and drink provided by a local bar and grill.
Jim Domzalski will be the owner of the Briarcliff location. Domzalski grew up taking classic guitar lessons but truly found his love for music when he performed on stage with friends. After a ten-year hiatus in the corporate finance world, Domzalski was ready to venture into the world of music.
“I wanted to do something more fulfilling and community-focused with my life,” said Domzalski.
“Given that music has always been so prominent and important to me, School of Rock was the perfect fit.”
“Jim Domzalski is exactly the type of person we look for to lead a School of Rock franchise,” said Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock.
“He is passionate about his community and eager to provide opportunities for students to further their music education. I look forward to watching School of Rock Briarcliff Manor grow as their students thrive.”
The Deptford location will host an event on the same day, at the same time to mark the debut of the new location. Located at 1575 Almonesson Road, Deptford, NJ 08096, the day will start off with a ceremonial guitar smashing and offer live dance performances, ribbon-cutting by local government officials, and food and drink provided by a local bar and grill.
The Briarcliff location will be owned by long-time musician, Matthew Glick. Glick has been a musician and private music teacher for two decades and was impressed with the concept after seeing one of his students perform at a School of Rock location. Glick was able to open and safely operate during the pandemic.
“We opened during the pandemic and have managed to stay safe and afloat during this crazy period, but the pandemic prevented us from having a grand opening,” said Glick.
“We are incredibly happy to finally be able to celebrate.”
“Matthew is exactly the type of person we look for to lead a School of Rock franchise,” said Price.
“He is passionate about his community and eager to provide opportunities for students to further their music education. I look forward to watching the School of Rock Deptford location grow as their students thrive.”
The brand has gone from strength to strength, and recently celebrated the opening of its 300th location and a string of new locations.
