Young Rockers

RiverCity Rock Academy brings a unique approach to music with our 12-week performance based program that puts students in a real band with expert teachers for a 90 minute weekly band rehearsal (Monday's 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM - starting January 7th), a weekly 30-minute private lesson, and a performance at a local venue! Over 25 hours of professional music instruction, experience, and education!

Students learn how to work as a team, play with other people, be creative, have fun, and as a result gain self-confidence and a lifelong path for music.
