About Our Music Program


The Rock and Pop Music Academy of Boulder offers musicians the opportunity to perform in a band. We combine music lessons with a rock group experience – and match you with the right band mates so you thrive. Do you play or want to learn to play guitar, bass guitar, drums, piano, vocals and/or keyboards? As part of The Lesson Studio, you’ll have access to world-class instructors who regularly perform in bands around the Boulder-Denver area, and who will work with you to develop your skills so you can reach for your dreams. Whether you’re a beginner or looking for advanced techniques, we instruct you, support your progress, and get you ready to play in front of audiences. You get to perform live at venues like The Fox Theater, Boulder Creek Festival and other local music locations.
