PROGRAMS DESIGNED BY MUSICIANS AND REQUESTED BY THE COMMUNITY
In the spirit of SUPPORTING THE ARTS we asked students, parents, and the general public about what classes they would like to see offered. And because supporting the arts also means SUPPORTING MUSICIANS, we asked music instructors to propose classes that they thought were important, engaging, and relevant.

Our classes are always being updated, so be sure to check back for more info. If you'd like to hear about when a new class is offered, sign up to our newsletter.

WORKSHOPS VS CLASSES
The workshops listed on the left are group settings where students play in a band that practices together and plays a gig. Rock Workshop bands also record at Blast House Studios. The list of classes on the right encompasses everything else we offer.
