What Do You Learn in Your Music Lessons?


That question is often asked by prospective students. Our teachers make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal musical needs and goals.

We do not treat every student the same in terms of what and how we teach.

A seven year old having their first guitar lesson will have very different needs than a fifty seven year old taking up piano for the 2nd time after having had lessons as a child.

The main reason to choose Rock Academy as your music lesson provider is that we are sensitive to the fact that every student is an individual.

If you enroll here for lessons, we will work with you to make a plan that will fit your needs and musical preferences. At the first lesson your teacher will ask you about your favorite type of music, and set goals to help accomplish whatever musical aspirations you have for yourself or your child.

What Styles of Music Do You Teach?

We teach all styles of rock, pop, jazz, country, folk, blues and classical.

Are Your Instructors Qualified?

All of our teachers have either received music degrees from prestigious universities or have at least 10 years of performing experience.  Most instructors have both.  In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly and strive to get to know each student and their parent on a personal level.


Guitar & Bass Guitar Lessons:


Our versatile and experienced guitar teachers can teach a wide variety of music including rock, blues, metal, country, and classical in guitar lessons.  These styles are balanced with solid fundamentals from nationally recognized methods.  Beginner students can expect to work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight-reading and theory.  We balance musicianship and fun by making sure that each lesson you are challenged with a new technical or theory concept, but also encourage students to bring in ideas of pieces they want to learn.  Students are encouraged to bring CDs or iPods to their lessons to set goals if there are tunes they want to learn.


Piano Lessons:


Our piano teachers incorporate a variety of styles from classical to jazz to popular music in their lessons, developing a sound foundation with nationally recognized methods.  Our piano staff will show you the fundamentals of sight-reading, technique, and theory and are also receptive to helping you learn your favorite songs in your lessons.  A simple full size electronic keyboard will suffice for the first 6 months.  Our piano teachers have warm personalities and enjoy sharing their love for the piano with you.


Drum Lessons:


Our drum instructors teach rock, metal, jazz, funk, blues and many other styles. Drum language can be complex and our instructors will challenge any drummer with a wide variety of technical exercises designed to improve your speed and comfort. All drummers bring in their favorite drum parts to learn in their drum lessons and theory is encouraged. We have many drum students who play in local bands, rock clubs, churches, or our own Rock Band program.  You do not have to purchase a drum kit to take lessons!  Beginning students can learn with a drum pad and sticks for less than $50.00. Students use our drum set at their drum lessons and do not have to bring anything except their drum sticks and a notebook.


Voice Lessons:


Our voice teachers teach a variety of styles of music including pop, Broadway, folk, jazz, classical and more.  Our teachers will help you reach your potential as a singer by including standard vocal repertoire along side songs that you want to sing. Voice students spend time each week doing physical exercises to improve their vocal range, ear training, breath control, vibrato, tone production, enunciation and more. All voice students set goals with their teacher to refine their tone and stage presence and to develop their own unique voice.
