Music Lessons for Kids
(For kids 13-17) The Rock Academy is an Asheville music school that teaches kids how to rock. Our experienced music instructors show kids everything they need to learn to perform on stage. They learn about all of the music equipment involved as well as how to play the rock songs they want to play. Take a look at our videos on YouTube and see how happy these kids are when performing songs that they love. Bands are formed with students of similar age and ability levels. Read more
