Rock U classes are the ultimate supplement to your child's musical journey! Each session students spend time honing their skills to perform some of the greatest Rock ‘n’Roll songs ever, while taking their playing skills to a new level. The combination of private lessons, group band rehearsals and live performance is a great formula for becoming anamazing musician.
Note: These are not one on one lessons so guitar and keyboard players need to know their basic chords, be able to change chords in rhythm, and drummers need to be able to keep a steady beat. To join, you'll need a recommendation from your teacher and an audition with our Rock University instructor!

Unequaled performance opportunities
School bands, orchestras, wind ensembles, and traditional chorus programs often provide little or no performance opportunities for electric guitar players, drum set players and pop singers. But at Old Towne Music, your child can perform on stage, in concert, and become more creative and confident while learning the value of working with others. It's amazing to see the confidence level rise with every kid after only one show. We find shy kids coming out of their box, and kids who have been struggling with their instrument shine.
Our brilliant teachers are incredibly positive and motivating. Students love their patience and dedication. Rock U students learn what it takes to play WITH other instruments, how to listen to each other, and what it takes to perform, all with the encouraging mentorship of an experienced teacher!
We have everything you need for Rock University, including a sound system and microphones. We have a background in performance and sound, so we know what it takes!
Large, comfortable rehearsal space that's ready to rock
We have a dedicated state-of-the-art 400 square foot room for rehearsals, with a 24 channel digital sound board, microphones, backline (amps, drums, keys), monitors and a phenomenal sound system, for the best possible experience! Our extensive knowledge and background in performance and sound makes our Rock U program unrivaled.
