Online Programs

Peer interaction inspires creativity in kids, but they don’t always have access to in-person group activities. We’ve adapted our rock band and lesson programs for remote learning, keeping fun and interaction a priority in the online environment. Parents enjoy the freedom of online learning while kids enjoy the social benefits of making music with their peers.

Remote Rock Band

Music is best when you play it with others. We leverage technology to make collaboration in a band accessible regardless of your physical location.


Audio Recording Workshops

All you need is an internet connection and a desire to create! Our interactive online recording classes open the door to remote learning and real-time collaboration.

"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"
