About Us

You are not only going to learn how to play an instrument, you are about to become a musician!

We give every student the confidence to be the rockstar they are!

Being a performance-based academy, we build self confidence by empowering children to play live shows on local stages. We have created a community where students can bond with one another both in class and on stage. It’s time to put your child in the spotlight and celebrate the true rockstars they are! 


We take each student’s music talent to the next level!

Founded in 2012 on the belief that learning to play music is vital in young people’s lives.

We welcome aspiring musicians of all levels, and all ages. Our staff’s goal is not only to instruct music but additionally we aim to provide an impactful experience for students where they learn transferable skills that can be carried throughout their development; such as self-esteem and confidence.
