School Of Rock will open Saturday, Oct. 12 at 4050 N. Oakland Ave. in Shorewood. 

The franchise, owned by Richard "Rock" Marasco, will provide lessons for young people ages 8-18 and the opportunity to perform concerts in public.

"Basically, we teach kids how to be in a rock and roll band," says Marasco.

Marasco says he plans to hire about 20 musicians to teach guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and vocals. (Sorry, kids, Jack Black will not be one of them.)

The school also has classes on performance, recording and more.

Founded 10 years ago in Philadelphia, School of Rock operates more than 100 schools around the world.
