Toby Mechem

Music Business

Music has been a big part of Toby’s life since he started playing drums at age 11 and performing with bands at 14. While giving drum lessons, he got his Associate Degree in Music Performance, and his Bachelor’s Degree in Television and Radio Marketing. Prior to joining School of Rock, he worked in sales and spent time as a marketing consultant for a small music school. Toby joined School of Rock as a Regional Manager for two franchise locations in 2015. He became a Director of Operations for the company in 2017.

Toby is raising two musicians at home. One has graduated out of the School of Rock program and the other is still active in the house band. Toby continues to perform and record original music, with his band’s latest release coming out in November of this year.
