Everyone has an inner rock star!
We teach you how to embrace it.

Traditional music lessons often seem stuffy and disconnected from actually playing and enjoying music. In our rock band and lesson programs performance is the goal, and fun and interaction are the norm. The private lessons support that goal, so students fall in love with playing and learning music.

"I got into the radio business because I'm a huge music fan. But it was so frustrating that I didn't know how to play an instrument. Working with John has been a great experience. Regardless of your skill level. John sees the potential in every person to be a great player. If you are thinking about learning guitar, Michigan Rock School should be your first call"
