PRS SE 245 Winner and School of Rock Student, Ted Merrill

PRS would like to congratulate School of Rock [SOR] Baltimore student and two time SOR All-Star, Ted Merrill, for winning the PRS SE 245 donated to the SOR to help support The Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, www.hopkinschildrens.org. PRS Guitars is proud to support music education.

From the School of Rock:

“For more than a decade, School of Rock has been inspiring kids to rock on stage and in life. Founded as a single school in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1998, School of Rock has become a growing international franchise, operating 69 schools in the US and Mexico.

We believe the best way to learn music is to play music. We take students from the lesson room to the stage, developing both their confidence and musicianship with programs designed for all skill levels. 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.
To date our students have played thousands of concerts, to more than 100,000 people, at such legendary venues as CBGB’s, The Trocadero, The Knitting Factory, The Whiskey, The Roxy, The Experience Music Project, The Big Easy and BB King’s Blues Club in Times Square. We have also had the great fortune to be able to perform at music festivals from Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits, to Zappanale in Bad Doberan, Germany.”
