Rock University Concord, NC
We are a music school, independently owned and operated. We specialize in teaching and motivating musicians of all ages through affordable programs. Our main focus is on Performance Band which is the unique teaching method that is a fun way to learn, develop team skills and show off what you have learned in public. Our students work their way from our lessons to the Performance Band into our elite Roadshow group which is hired to perform all over town to hundreds of fans.
With the help of our professional and experienced music instructors in Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Vocals, and Keyboards, our students don't just learn in the classroom - they get the opportunity to perform in a real band on stage at events all around Charlotte. Rock University is also partnered with local organizations recognized by musicians in the Carolinas including the Charlotte Music Awards and the Carolina Entertainment Network. The result is a fun and motivating experience that instills confidence, dedication, and a work and study ethic that Rock University students exhibit at home, at school and in life.
Our facilities include a fully equipped performance stage and sound room, along with several practice rooms. In addition to our Performance-Based Band for kids, we offer individual music lessons for both kids and adults, rehearsal rentals for bands, as well as special workshops and seminars hosted by music industry professionals. We also have a band development program.
Products and Services
Unlike traditional music lessons, this program teaches kids how to play an instrument, as well as how to perform with a band on stage. The ability to play music with their peers, and the opportunity to perform in front of live audiences, helps to motivate students to take their music training seriously and dream big. Our facilities include a complete performance stage, several practice rooms, and a full complement of music equipment from instruments to professional audio systems. Our instructors are professional musicians and performers that are active in local bands in Charlotte and take pride in being able to help to train, and more importantly, inspire the next generation of musicians.
