He is currently the president of the Seattle Peace Concerts, bringing free park concerts to the Seattle area.

“Jon and I have lived and raised our family in the area for over 30 years, and when the need to move our school came up, we found a tremendous amount of support to keep us rooted here, where we feel we can make the biggest impact and difference through music education” Gayle Scherrer said. “The support we received from our customers, teachers, and community was amazing. We hope the new location will continue to serve and give back to the community, as they’ve given to us, for years to come. The City of Lynnwood itself has truly made us feel at home and appreciated.”

School of Rock provides students of all ages with music lessons that include bass, guitar, singing, drum and piano. Drawing from all styles of rock and roll, School of Rock students learn theory and techniques via songs from legendary artists such as Aretha Franklin, Lenny Kravitz, and Led Zeppelin.
