School of Rock’s FrontWomen will be a space for female business leaders to navigate complex topics in a safe environment.
Created by School of Rock chief operating officer (COO) Stacey Ryan and directors of operations, Jill Livick and Nicole Canale, FrontWomen is designed to be a platform to discuss the complex topics and issues that surround women in business leadership roles. The brand plans to include all School of Rock vendors and partners in the initiative.
“Bringing women’s voices to the fore is critical for business success,” said Stacey Ryan, COO of School of Rock.
“Stepping into a senior leadership role reinforced a huge opportunity and sense of responsibility to rock the boat and make meaningful change.”
The first event has already taken place, with women from all around the world taking part in the first virtual FrontWomen meeting. With plans to meet quarterly, C-level position speakers have already been booked. A newsletter is currently in the works, planned for a quarterly release with information on websites, resources and other women-driven initiatives that FrontWomen find valuable.
“FrontWomen is an important development for School of Rock that will have a profound impact,” said Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock.
“We are working to empower women on all fronts, including career development, creative expression, and personal well-being.”
School of Rock has always celebrated female artists by consistently adding their work to its curriculum and has penned a number of articles celebrating female artists.

School of Rock draw on a variety of rock and roll styles to teach students and employ the techniques and theories of musicians such as Led Zeppelin, Aretha Franklin and Lenny Kravitz.
The unique, patented performance-based learning approach has empowered many students with musical skill and even propelled some to getting record deals, performing on television and performing on Broadway.
