How Many Kids Have Learned to Play Guitar with the Rock Dojo Group Guitar Classes at Irvington Elementary School?

Here’s what one Irvington School parent said about the Rock Dojo after-school group guitar lessons:
This year, after my musician husband bought our kids guitars, my 11-year old started taking classes with Brian at school and we started hostng a class for our 6-year old and some friends at our house. Once you start classes with Brian, it’s prety impossible not to be all in.
He got us hook, line, and sinker.
To say Brian and URGD inspires students would be a wild understatement. He is passionate, patent, creatve, and empowers the kids to BE musicians from day one. A few classes in, they are thinking about and in many cases, actually writng their own music.” — Briggy Thomas, Irvington School Parent
