James Domzalski opened School of Rock Briarcliff Manor in August 2021 after falling in love with the charm of the village. School of Rock’s program starts at age 3 and offers private and one-on-one music lessons as well as group rehearsals that eventually lead to a real rock show at a real rock venue. Whether you’re a rookie who’s never touched an instrument before or a rock legend ready to hit the stage, School of Rock has a program for you.
The program combines one-on-one instruction with group rehearsals and live performances, teaching students how to play together as a band. Each year, School of Rock puts on thousands of rock shows featuring students from around the world. School of Rock Briarcliff plans to audition students to become members of its house band and once selected, they will be gigging around the community, playing multiple shows each month at community events, open mics, etc.

Travis Torsky opened Sleepy Hollow Bikes in the summer of 2021 after managing bike stores in New York City for a decade. Torsky offers bicycle-related services and sells parts and accessories. Services include tune-ups, spot repairs, suspension work and other maintenance. He also provides bicycle fittings in order to help riders be more comfortable and efficient on their bikes as well as reducing the risk of injury.
Most bicycle shops make the majority of their profits selling new bikes and have specific brands they carry and sell. As a service-only store, Torsky’s goal is to make sure customers have a bike that works well and that they love to ride. Torsky gives back to the community by offering free maintenance clinics so people can learn more about their bikes and when spring rolls around, he plans to organize group rides for various levels of skill, including kids’ mountain bike rides.
