about us

LessonsThatRock is a music instruction business located in Southern California near Bellflower, Lakewood, and Cerritos. We offer guitar, bass, piano, drums, ukulele, and cajon music lessons, both private and group, to students of all ages, levels, and styles. Currently, we are focusing on putting out free, high-quality content that you may access at any time. This free content will include everything that you need to succeed, except for your own hard work.


We believe in the following three principles:

1. Everyone Should Have the Same Opportunities.

We recognize that many people are blocked from accessing opportunities due to financial circumstances. Here at LessonsThatRock, we are so incredibly passionate about music, that we don’t want that to be the case with your family. We believe in the power of music and would love to see a world where anyone who wanted to take music lessons was able to. That’s why we’re offering our video music lessons to you free of charge. We will also continue to upload more resources such as our free chord library, free guitar tabs, free bass tabs, music resources, and many more top secret projects that will be coming in the next few months.

 2. Learning Music Makes You Smarter.

Learning how to read music is very mathematical in nature. There is a logical flow to it. You have analyze all sorts of data within mere split seconds and make decisions about it. Learning music is training for analytical thinking types such as engineers, and doctors. It’s no secret that the United States could use a boost in the mathematics education department, so start learning an instrument today, and you can make getting smarter fun!

3. Everyone Has the Ability to Learn.

No matter what your goal, everyone can learn, grow and be smarter. Music is a big part of that. Students of music learn how to think, how to be dedicated, how to have patience, and most of all, how to believe in themselves. For example, everyone knows that performing music live improves your self-confidence. As a music teacher, I have seen the amazing transformations in lives as kids who are shy and meek, become rockstars on stage!
