Long-distance partners open Norwood music school

FAR-FLUNG PARTNERSHIP: Ed Jackowski and Tom Brunelle have been friends since childhood, sharing a love of music and playing in bands together as teens. Now they’ve teamed up again, buying a School of Rock music education franchise and opening in Norwood as business partners – 3,000 miles apart.

Jackowski, 43, lives in Walpole. Brunelle, 45, lives in California, where he is a producer for E! Entertainment Television and also has a partnership with Chelsea Handler in their own production company. The distance between the friends and business partners is not as daunting as it once was, Jackowski said.
