“School of Rock has been a great community for these kids. It is an alternative to extracurricular activities that a lot of these kids can really fit into where they might feel out of place in other arenas.”
A product of School of Rock, Chris Goodlof has accomplished quit a bit for a young guy. Born and raised in Bergen County, NJ, he has been playing guitar and bass since grammar school and already has played onstage with greats like Leslie West from Mountain, Carmine Appice from Vanilla Fudge and many of the other musicians who teach at School of Rock. Studying under David Bowie's guitarist Carlos Alomar at Stevens Institute of Technology (as well as Mike Morance at the South Hackensack School of Rock) gave Chris a great foundation to become the musician he is today. He was also in a touring band, has been playing shows since high school, and has a knowledge of recording, mixing, and engineering.
