For Those About to Rock... School of Rock Salutes You!
(HAMILTON, NJ) (October 17, 2012) - Michael Morpurgo is a rock entrepreneur who has established a performance based music program that teaches adults and kids how to rock on stage and in life. As the owner of three Schools of Rock, he's always looking for ways to give back to the communities where his schools are located. For the month of November, Morpurgo decided to do something special for this upcoming Veterans Day. He came up with the idea after being inspired by The Travis Manion Foundation, a 501(c)(3) Organization dedicated to our veterans.
"I know it takes a special type of person to put their lives on the line and defend our country," stated Morpurgo. As the son of a Vietnam vet, Morpurgo has a great deal of respect for the men and women who defend our American way of life. "So, in honor of Veterans Day we came up with a way to thank the veterans who serve our country... with music," said Morpurgo.
For a limited time, Morpurgo is offering a tuition relief program for current and former members of our armed forces and their children during the month of November. "Vets or their children that sign up for our full rock program during the month of November will get 50% off their tuition," said Morpurgo. In order to be eligible, the vets signing up must be new students, present a valid veterans identification card and register for a continuous four month window of the program. "The offer will be good at my schools located in Doylestown, Philadelphia and Princeton."
Morpurgo's inspiration for the offer is The Travis Manion Foundation, a 501(c)(3) Organization that is dedicated to assist our nation's veterans and the families of Fallen Heroes. Ryan Manion, the President of the foundation stated, "It is great to see a local business in (their communities) provide an enriching opportunity for our veterans. I commend School of Rock for their commitment to our military community." Concluded Morpurgo, "We welcome that commitment. I think our music program a good way for vets to express what they've been through and a great way help them and their families heal."
Princeton School of Rock teaches guitar, bass, vocals, keyboards, drums and combines weekly private music lessons and group band rehearsals to prepare students to take the stage in front of live audiences in an authentic concert setting.
