Rockstar Music School fills this void by tailoring their music curriculum to rock music genres and giving children and adult students a place to learn and refine their craft.Perhaps just as importantly, Rockstar Music School gives children who are interested in rock music a place to call home! They can be themselves, interact with like-minded children and create friendships and a love of music that will last a lifetime!Of course, now David can learn from the best as well!
