ROCKSTAR REDEFINED

WE JUST DO IT DIFFERENTLY!

Statistics prove it. Traditional music lessons are boring and uninspiring. Our approach is different. First choose your instrument & desired lesson length/frequency. Now choose a style that fits you best. One on one, groups, or our exciting performance series which combines one on one lessons with a group/band experience too. There are many options to help you find your inner rockstar.

THERE IS POWER IN PERFORMANCE!

RockStar performance program makes learning fun. Each week our students are working on music they know and love. Yes, we teach theory. Yes, they learn to read music. Yes, it's one on one, individualized learning. What makes it unique is once a month, our students join forces in a band of their own and play and perform the very songs they have learned that month. Every few months, our RockStar bands perform a live concert in our very own, RockStar performance Center.

ITS THE PATH TO PERFORMANCE

STEVE - FOUNDER

Born in Chicago and raised in the San Francisco bay area, BASS is Steve's middle name. Since 1985, Steve has been laying down the groove for a wide variety of musical projects. From arena style rock to contemporary collaborations to modern country music, Steve has been there and ROCKED that! His rhythmic sensibility and melodic approach coupled with extensive recording, performing and touring experience are all important elements in delivering the very best musical education for you and your family. At Rockstar Music Academy we don't just teach music, we live it and love it.

Rockstar Music Academy is fortunate to have an amazing array of premiere players ready to show you what makes them rock. Meet the Director of our drumming division and instructor extraordinaire… Karen!!! Karen grew up in a musical family and from the age of 10 she toured northern California with her family band playing songs from the 50’s 60’s and top 40’s. She has performed at multiple locations across California and she was even sponsored by Coca Cola. Karen appeared on cable and television programming weekly and received music scholarships for outstanding achievement on multiple occasions. Over the years Karen has polished her craft by studying under drum masters such as Benny Greb, David Garibaldi, Mike Johnston, and Tony Dey. She is continually growing as a player by learning new linear patterns, independence exercises, permutations, poly-rhythms, world grooves, and the coolest show off licks.

Playing the drums is Karen’s passion and teaching the drums is what she loves to do. Her joy stems from helping students to reach their drumming goals and potential. With Rockstar Music Academy and drum lessons with Karen…. There are no limits!
