“We were recently featured in the Sarasota Observer.”

Hodsdon urges his students to move around when it comes to the instruments they play.
Rather than the students staying with one instrument, he switches them around on vocals, keyboard, drums, bass and guitar.

At Everyone Rocks, students go to a bright-purple music studio and jam out to Queen’s
“We Are the Champions” with their friends in their own rock band.
