The 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 its presence as a premier rock-based music school in the Bay Area.

The 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.
