About San Francisco Rock Project (SFRP)

San Francisco Rock Project was born in June 2010, when a group of local families and teacher/musicians banded together to form a nonprofit music school. Thanks to countless hours logged by its many volunteers, a deeply talented, dedicated staff, and a hard-working and gifted group of students, Rock Project quickly established itself as the premier rock-based music school in the Bay Area.

Rock Project is proud to be a nonprofit corporation, with all proceeds being returned to the program — in the form of scholarships and tuition assistance, equipment and facilities maintenance, and staff compensation.

The Lending Library

In May 2012, Rock Project joined forces with local indie rockers tUnE-yArDs to raise money for a “lending library” of musical instruments for students. Any student enrolled in Rock Project can now “check out” guitars, basses and other instruments to take home and try out for a while. No strings attached! Rock Project is poised to launch other innovative new programs for its students over the coming months. So stay tuned! Sorry for the bad puns.


SFRP’s Tuition Assistance program is supported in part for the year 2015 by the Bill Graham Supporting Foundation of the Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund.
