The inspiration to start Lessons That Rock Music Lessons occured after taking music lessons with half a dozen boring music teachers. I suddenly realized, it doesn’t matter how much you know if you’re not having fun. Music lessons should be fun. It hit me that I could be a better music teacher.



Rock The House

Since 2001 Lessons That Rock has aimed to provide fun music lessons where our students learn the kind of music they like, whether it’s rock, blues, metal, country or jazz. In addition, we challenge our students, and offer them the opportunity to perform a Rock The House – a live rock concert in your living room – starring you! Rock The House concerts give new musicians more confidence, and rewards them well for all their hard work. Click here for more information on Rock The House concerts from Lessons That Rock.
