Lessons at Rockdale are anything but ordinary. We offer one-on-one private lessons on acoustic, electric, and bass guitar, piano and keyboard, drums and percussion, flute, trumpet, and voice.

Rockdale teachers are patient motivators and encourage students of all ages to play and enjoy music by building self-esteem, setting and reaching goals and playing often with other musicians. Whether a beginning or advanced musician, Rockdale has teachers that will help students take their playing to the next-level.

Here is just some of what you’ll learn at Rockdale:


Whether you just picked up your first guitar or your “axe” has been collecting dust in the closet for years, we have the right guitar instructor for you. From strummers to shredders our students do it all, and they do it well. Our guitar teachers have unmatched experience and knowledge to get you to the next level. Private classes are available for both acoustic and electric guitar.


The Bass player is the foundation of many bands in Rock & Roll history. From Paul McCartney, John Paul Jones, John Entwistle, Jack Bruce, and of course FLEA… the list goes on and on! Our bass specialists will teach you all the tips and tricks to add your name to the list of “defenders of the low-end”!

Piano & Keyboard

From Bach to Rock, Amadeus to ZZ Top. At Rockdale we do it all. We can teach you all the concertos and sonatas you like, but where else can you learn a screaming organ solo or how to program a synthesizer? Our piano teachers use proven techniques to help you learn the piano or keyboard, and get you on your way to playing whatever style of music you like! Only at Rockdale!

Drums & Percussion

At Rockdale our drum lessons are held in a room complete with two full drumsets, guitars, amps, keyboards and a ton of other toys. So instead of learning to play drums with your nose buried in a book, you get practical experience playing with other musicians or jamming to your favorite tracks. Come see for yourself!

Vocals & Performance

Front-men and front-women are the main attraction for so many groups throughout music history. It’s your turn to grab a mic and command the crowd’s attention. Are you ready? Our voice teachers will help you polish those “pipes” with private instruction in vocal technique and stage performance.  Rockdale’s teachers utilize fun singing exercises and one-on-one vocal coaching that will give you the confidence and skill to belt it out like Aretha!

Horns & Woodwinds

How do you take a Rock Band to the next level? Add a horn section! At Rockdale we offer private lessons on Trumpet and Flute. Get out of the concert band rut and step in front of a Rock Band to blow away the crowd. Pun intended!
