Bev Moser, Christy Shaterian, Nick Zimmer

2018. I hope that you’ve been able to stick to all of those resolutions you made and are feeling strong and committed to becoming a better version of yourself. While love and romance are in the air all around us this month, we decided to let Valentine’s Day take a back seat to some remarkable artistic creators. I truly admire the makers in all forms whether it be a musician, writer, painter or even a trophy maker. I am always in awe of the talents they have been blessed with. Please read on about some of the local gifted artisans we have featured in this issue. While our reality can sometimes be a little grim, I hope reading Franklin Lifestyle offers you a brief respite from it all. We aim to offer a mix of practical advice, intelligent commentary and an insider’s view into all things Franklin. In that vein,

School of Rock MUSIC SCHOOL INSPIRING KIDS TO ROCK ON STAGE AND IN LIFE

AS A MUSIC CITY PARENT, YOU HAVE A CHOICE IN AFTER-SCHOOL MUSIC EDUCATION PROGRAMS. Local talent is phenomenal, and music flows widely, from bluegrass to classical, from musical theater to choir. You’ve looked, but nothing quite fits. Your kid wants to channel her inner King of Pop or jam to Red Hot Chili Peppers in front of an audience on the stage of the world-famous Wildhorse Saloon. It seems a tall order. "Not so," says Angie McCreight, who left the corporate world after a 20-year scientific career and turned her lifelong love of singing and music into a viable business. The School of Rock franchise opened in Franklin six years ago and expanded to Nashville three years ago, offering programs from 6-year-olds to adults. “We’re not just a music school, but a community," she says. "We perform to teach music.”

(CON TI N U ED)

The hands-on, learning and fun through live performance is the successful formula that makes School of Rock the perfect fit for the 100 to 125 students who enroll each year. Alumni, who “graduate” at 18 years old, often report back about the difference it made in their lives  as they pursued their music studies or work as an audio sound engineer because of the interest they developed. At School of Rock, you will find a family haven for your child. Music lessons are offered from 3:30 to 8 p.m. Monday-Thursday. Both locations have drum sets, pianos, guitars and basses on-site. Instructors will be able to recommend the best-fit voice coach or instrument to purchase or rent for your child. Tuition, which covers four 45-minute private lessons, is paid monthly. Most people sign up for the performance program for an extra fee. Performance shows are designed by the music director and instructors. Students sign up for the shows in which they want to perform and work together as a team and respect each other’s role in the show. Students gain performance stagecraft and styling, how they present themselves on stage and convey the vibe of the artist they’re showcasing. In 2014, students performed a Motown themed show at the Franklin Theater and performers dressed in 1960s suits and dresses. Beginning younger students, 6 to 11 years old, are enrolled in the Rock 101 program. They learn songs together as a band and get the chance to be the opening act for advertised shows. Advanced students have the opportunity to try out for the touring house band or the national All Stars tour. Touring alumni have performed as far away as Las Vegas and San Francisco. To sign up for a free tour and trial lesson for your child, visit SchoolOfRock.com .

“We’re not just a music school, but a community,” Angie McCreight says.

MUSIC MAKER DAVE MUSTAINE CALLS FRANKLIN HOME GRAMMY-AWARD WINNER NOW IN THE SPIRIT BIZ

ARTICLE AND PHOTOGRAPHY NICK ZIMMER 18

Franklin Lifestyle | February 2018


WHEN YOU THINK OF FRANKLIN, YOU ARE LIKELY GOING TO THINK ABOUT THE TOWN BEING THE QUIET, QUAINT, FRIENDLY NEIGHBOR JUST TO THE SOUTH OF NASHVILLE. But Dave Mustaine, thrash metal legend and founding member of the band Megadeth, is here to expand what Franklin is known for. Franklin Lifestyle spent some time in the home of Dave and his wife, Pamela, to learn more about what brought them to Middle Tennessee, what it’s like being a metal musician in the country music capital, and what separates Franklin from the rest of the country.
