Dalton has been very vocal about his desire and goal to give back and support causes that are important to him.
School of Rock continues to be an innovator in the musical education industry. The program takes students beyond the classroom and to some of rock n’ roll’s most famous stages, such as Chicago’s House of Blues and Lollapalooza. Dalton Rapattoni adds to the curriculum’s authenticity as it gives students the opportunity to play side-by-side with a professional musician. Rapattoni’s extensive background at the school as a former student and teacher make him an ideal guest to join the School of Rock.
"At School of Rock, we accept students of all ages and with all skill levels. Dalton enrolled in School of Rock as a beginner guitar student at the Dallas location when he was just 12 years old. The epitome of every student that walks through our doors. As part of the School of Rock 'family', we all witnessed his accomplishments as a contestant on American Idol's final season and watched proudly through his televised musical journey," commented Craig Zim, franchise owner of the Coral Springs and West Broward locations. Dalton became a household name as he reached the Final 3 of a national idol search and it is a testimony to his hard work and to the value he received during his years at School of Rock, both as a student and a teacher.
"After placing third in the competition, Dalton has been hard at work trying to find a way to thank his fans for getting him to the pinnacle point of Idol’s final season. Through the School of Rock Gives Back Tour, Dalton is able to thank those that supported him on his American Idol journey. We are proud to have the relationship we have with Dalton and we are honored that he is giving back to our communities as a way of saying 'thank you' to the communities that gave to him."
