My kids have never learned any type of musical instrument and they are LOVING Rock Dojo. They came home after their second lesson playing "Brain Stew" by Green Day which my husband and I loved. It was amazing! The lessons move quickly (which is impressive given that kids are challenging to wrangle without a musical instrument in their hands) which keeps them engaged, and I find them hanging out in their rooms strumming and practicing on their own without me pushing. We're big fans, and are moving into our third (8 week) session of once-a week after school lessons with Brian/Rock Dojo. Rock Dojo has some inexpensive rental guitars available and are happy to work with you on that, but we found that the kids really wanted to practice/play on their own between sessions, so we made the investment in their own guitars (you can find pretty inexpensively second hand, and Brian was happy to provide resources/advice on that, too.)

Brian and RockDojo are amazing! I met Brian and Sophie at our elementary school through a class my son attends. I’d tried teaching guitar to my 9 yr-old son for a few years and it never really seemed to click, but once he started playing with RockDojo he got really motivated. A lot of that has to do with Brian’s energy, but also the curriculum and the way it’s structured. He starts out by giving the kids riffs that are easy to learn with one finger on one string and that are well known, like TNT, Iron Man, 7 Nation Army, etc., and once they get those down he moves to open string bar chord songs like Louie Louie and Wild Thing. My son has been in the class 3 weeks and he’s now figured out that all the one-string songs are a lot easier to play if he plays with all his fingers. His progress is nothing short of amazing and I’m sure once the bar chord thing kicks-in, he’s going to really start shredding. Brian has really put a lot of thought into the progression of his students. He doesn’t skip over theory and rhythm or notation and tablature, and has great warm-up exercises and resources in his material, and the ability for the kids to earn belts toward a black belt is genius. It gives the kids real goals to attain. And that’s not all. RockDojo does live events. I was hosting a big fundraiser at our school and was looking for some musical talent to bring to it. The event was a Fun Run, so I wanted something really energetic to get kids motivated as they ran laps around the school. I talked to Brian and he talked to a friend, and they showed-up and played the event as a singer and guitar player. He had a whole set that worked perfectly with the event and they played three sets over the course of 3 hours. It was nothing short of epic. The kids, parents and teachers loved it! It was totally Metal and at the same time appropriate for an elementary school audience. The songs are high-energy, fun and funny. They totally rocked it! I’m already planning on inviting Brian to my next big fundraiser in the Spring. You seriously can’t go wrong with RockDojo at an event. 100% recommend!

My nine year old is loving his after-school lessons with the Rock Dojo program. He is excited to show us what he had learned on the guitar at the end of each session and is gaining a wider appreciation for music. Thanks Brian!

I decided to attend my son's classes with Brian right from the start (we've done 4 classes so far) and I was amazed at the level of detail, insight but most of all, FUN that the Rock Dojo provides. I played a bunch of instruments as a kid from 3-11 grade, and I really liked getting awesome refreshers of music through the lens of the guitar. Be warned however, following your first attendance with your little person, you may end up buying a tidy collection of amps, guitars, basses and pedals. It's massively addictive and tons of fun to understand the process and watch the kids grow as they pick up techniques, read music and start playing riffs of some of the best music out there.
