Paul Green is a musician, control freak, and founder of school of Rock and The Paul Green Rock Academy (PGRA).
In 2009 Green sold the School of Rock, which today has more than 100 branches across the country, to the parent company of the Sylvan Learning Center. Though he left School of Rock the passion to teach kids music, especially ZAPPA music, never left him. So he opened a new kids music school: THE PAUL GREEN ROCK ACADEMY, which operates with the same love for music and wild ambition as the original School of Rock.
The Paul Green Rock Academy is a performance based, interactive music school, based on a method honed over the past 17 years. We believe that the best way to teach most anything, and especially music, is with a hands on approach. Therefore, our entire school is dedicated to getting kids playing music in an as authentic way as possible.
Our teachers are all real working rock musicians, and as such are able to relate to the students in a very direct way, offering valuable advice and guidance in the field. The shows we stage are not just recitals for family and friends but rather aspire to be real rock shows at real rock venues, with professional sound and, when appropriate, smoke machines.
