Editorial review from Citysearch 8/28/2013

This is to any and all who want to give Streetwise a try--beware!! As a former student I can say with certainty that Karl is a 'user and abuser'. His main and only concern is himself and his business. He will promise anything to get what he wants then will use most any means to get you out. He may have talented and good instructors who are not part of this, but one instructor in particular will cut you to ribbons verbally and not care a bit. Go where you want, but after taking lessons from this instructor I had to relearn most everything I was taught there. I would never go there again! more

The real Jack Black in Charlotte 9/8/2009

We love the school of rock! It's a great experience for children and adults of all ages. We strongly recommend it for anyone. Pros: School of Rock! The real Thing more


Well rounded education and comes from a long line of musicians family and friends right out of Boston Massachusetts. Inspired and conected to some of the top bands ever out of Boston such as Areosmith,The Cars,Boston,Donna Summer,Extreme and many more which all started as Garage Bands and made it to the top. This is Karls Dream to have his students Make it to the top and it will happen. bostondave Pros: AMAZING more

This place is amazing! Best music instruction by far... 1/24/2009

Hearing about the concept of this business intriqued me to stay an entire day at the rock camps and see how the kids responded to this very cool Termont Hall concert build-up process. Karl is a very talented muscian himself and attempts to reach out to these students and stimulates his enthusiasm into their styles and also at the same time letting them express themselves. That is quite a balance that not just anyone can pull together. His students are not just local to the Indian Trail area by any means, they stretch far into the out-skirts of the area with some driving more than an hour to attend his unique style of instruction. Should your child or even yourself be interested in music and self-expression check it out and give it a try, I truly trust, you will not be disappointed. Rock on Karl! Pros: nothing short of the best experience for anyone interested in music. Cons: there is no con that comes to mind at all more

The Coolest Looking School In Town 8/19/2008

I saw streetwise on Fox News Rising this morning, I went over to the school and loved the atmosphere, and sighned up for lessons,Karl the owner took alot time to make me feel welcome, He had an open slot and I took a lesson today. It felt great to pick up my guitar again , the lesson was great. more

streetwise rocks 8/19/2008

streetwise music is the best music instruction by far in the charlotte area. My kids have taken lessons at many places and streetwise feels like home. Karl Mokal cares about these kids,he is very encouraging and really trys to get to know them. My son got a chance to play on stage in a real niteclub at Tremont Music Hall for the first time this weekend and felt like a real rock star. All of his instructors are great. So it doesnt matter who you get for a teacher you wont be disappointed. I highly recommend Streetwise Music Pros: great teachers more

my experience with streetwise 7/29/2008

My 15 yr old daughter was struggling with things 15 yr old girls do...add to that a divorce, loss of a couple family members and a good friend, and you have a 15 yr old with more than she can handle. She needed an outlet, she loves music and has wanted to play the guitar. Streetwise, and the staff, and especially Karl, have provided that outlet. She tells me she has a sense of peace when she leaves her music lesson. Karl is teaching her, and has taken the time to find her love of words, and poems. he uses that in teaching her to express herself. Those things you don't learn at a college or other training venue.. those things come from a desire to connect with young people and help them find their own way. more

Worst lesson ever... 5/21/2008

I showed up for a drum lesson, and knew more than the teacher. He didn't even know how to read music...A friend of mine took a guitar lesson from Karl, and recieved a book that Karl wrote that contained incorrect music theory information. I felt that all they were concerned with was getting my tuition money... Cons: teachers not properly trained in music theory more

Worst Music Instruction in Town 2/18/2008

Karl first of all states he graduated from berkley but the truth is he didnt last one year there.He brings his personal life/buisness into thejob, not fun. He also cannot teach, if leaving a student to go smoke a ciggarette during his lesson is good teaching in your opinion, karl is your man! Cons: Staff incapable of teaching music. more

Streetwise offers more than just boring LESSONS, kids love it. 8/28/2007

Streetwise is the best place for your kids to get music instruction. Karl and Jim are definitely talented and are really great with the kids. They are fathers themselves and seem to have a knack for understanding the kids and what motivates them. They have done a fine job of networking the students with each other for practice support and camaraderie, as well as fun. Its nice to see kids of all different styles and levels working together with the Rock Camps and seeing them on stage performing which is a HUGE morale booster for the students. Students at ALL playing levels get up on stage because they know they have the support of their fellow students and instructors. They all become friends. The format has really put the kids at ease and really helps especially with the shy kids. Its great for their confidence. Not everyone is an ""athelete"". Its the best extra-curricular time my kids could be spending. And know that the crew at Streetwise may be long haired rockers but they are good people with good values and take what they do seriously. more

Parent says"" Streetwise is amazing"" 6/21/2005

I have shoped everywhere for music instruction. Either the teachers never showed up for our lessons or they would quit on us. I did not like music and art's, Music go round, music 49, a music store as well as some others I have had the same experience at these locations. The instructors just did not care. I was even billed at music go round and I never took a lesson. Karl and his staff are the best around our family and friends just love the guys and gals at streetwise. As a parent of three christian boys I highly recommend them for music instruction. Thanks Andy Pros: cool atomosphere, patient teachers reli, very talented Cons: Wish there were 2 Kar, none, none more
