Let your child become a Rock Star! Each week, your child will learn about different rock/pop instruments such as guitar (acoustic & electric), electric bass, keyboards, violin, drums and percussion, as well as voice (using a microphone). Our fun "hands-on" approach will give your child a strong musical foundation, learning the theory behind music as well as the fundamentals. Our philosophy is to teach music on a multi-instrumental level, allowing our students to thrive musically on various instruments while building their confidence. Our talented college-graduate teachers creatively inspire all students to choose the instruments they would really like to learn.
