What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Every student is treated as an individual. We know that people will have different goals and aspirations. We talk with each student and create a plan to help you achieve your goals. Our award-winning Rock House Method curriculum is progressive and we provide students with all the tools you need to fulfill your dream and play music. We ask new students to make an "Ultimate Song List" of songs you want to learn and your lesson plan will help you to play these songs quickly and easily. From theory to complete songs we guide you along your musical journey!

Most of our instructors have musci degrees and all are professional performing musicians. We not only train you how to play your intrument but we coach and inspire you to be your best. Every Rock House instruector is trained and certified to teach.
