TIMOTHY CHRISTOPHER REECE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
In 2014, Tim Reece opened SoR Aurora with owners Karla and Ron Willard. As the assistant general manager, he was instrumental to the program's success.
On May 15th, 2017 Tim lost his 9 month battle with cancer. He is remembered by our music community as a inspiring teacher, thoughtful mentor, and devoted friend. As a way to preserve his legacy as an artist and teacher,Tim's family and PRO created the
Timothy Christopher Reece Scholarship Program.
Tim Reece, you are our dear friend and forever a part of our music family.

INSTRUMENT LOAN PROGRAM
Would you like to try a new instrument without the investment?
Students at the School of Rock Aurora have access to our Instrument Loan Program. Any enrolled student can check out any of the instruments listed below for 30 days to determine if an instrument is right for them.
What’s the cost?
It works like any other library: prior to checking out the instrument, a parent or guardian will sign a lending agreement that states you will reimburse PRO for any damage or loss that occurs while the instrument is in your care. Normal wear and tear is not considered damage.
What instruments do you have?
Bass Guitar and Practice Amp
Electric Guitar and Practice Amp
5 Piece Drum Kit
Keyboard (and stand)
3/4 Size Electric Guitar and Practice Amp
3/4 Bass Guitar and Practice Amp
Junior Drum Kit (approx ages 5-8yrs)
