12 BENEFITS of becoming a

Rockwall School of Music student:

1. Which Instrument is Best for My Child?

That’s a great question! If a child has no preference, we typically encourage them to start with the piano. It teaches so many musical skills that can be transferred later to other instruments. You’ll find that we are the only school in the greater Rockwall area that offers a wide variety of all the popular instruments and more. We Offer: Private Lessons, Small Group Classes for Beginners as well as Special Interest Classes/Camps.

Adult Lessons are also offered: For those of you who would love to learn an instrument alongside your child or for an adult or Sr. Adult who finally has time to pursue the life-long dream of playing an instrument, RSM offers Adult Music Lessons too!

2. When are lessons offered? We offer Lessons Seven Days a Week!

We get it…sometimes it feels as if there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done that your child wants to experience. Rockwall School of Music is the only music school in the area that offers lessons seven days a week to accommodate your busy schedule. We even offer early classes for homeschoolers.

9:00 a.m. – 8:30 p.m. Monday – Thursday
9:00 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. Friday

3. Imagine a Comfortable Place to Lounge that has Your Name on It!

Take your choice…if you’re a “people person” you can enjoy the spacious reception area at our music school. If you would prefer the peace and quiet of some ‘alone time’, find one of the recessed areas that’s scattered throughout our building to enjoy your quiet time.

We consider you to be part of our family and encourage you to take advantage of all that we have to offer. Large observation windows inserted in the studio doors allow you to watch your child’s lesson or, if you prefer, you can sit in on the lessons at any time. Our Open-Door Policy is another unique feature that you’ll only find at RSM and one that parents, just like you, find comforting and rewarding.


4. Your Children Will Never Forget the Trophies, Certificates and Award Wristbands They Receive at RSM as Together We Celebrate Their Tenure and Accomplishments!

We celebrate with you each musical success that your child experiences. The good news is that the school of music you have chosen is the only school in the greater Rockwall area to offer the opportunity to earn special colored wristbands, trophies AND certificates as a tangible way of encouraging them along the way. We acknowledge the hard work and intentional effort they’ve put into learning the instrument of their choice. Our “Musical Ladder Program” generates smiling faces when the children are awarded these full colored, really cool, wristbands that they can show off to their friends.

5. The Next Wrung of the Ladder is to Share Your Music with Friends and Family in One of Our FREE Showcase Recitals!

Each recital builds on the one before and within a few short years, the audience is riveted to the edge of their seats as everyone in your child’s personal community supports and cheers them to be their best.

These Showcase Recitals allow for ALL children to experience the thrill of successfully performing before friends and family. We take away the fear-factor that many times stifles the creative side of a child and channel it into positive energy and experiences. All recitals are free and, unlike many studios in Rockwall, you will never be charged a recital participation or admission fee.

6. Most People Eventually Ask, ‘How Can All of this be Accomplished in Such a Short Period of Time?’

The Rockwall School of Music Provides the Largest Selection of University-Trained Teaching Faculty in One Location! Not only are our teachers kind-hearted and fun-loving in their teaching style, they are high-level performers in their professional life. Your child’s music teacher will be committed to learning about their personal musical goals and providing stepping stones to help them achieve those goals. With so many different learning styles, we promise to do everything possible to find the teacher who can help chart the best individualized path for your child. We are confident that you will find the right teacher to meet your music lesson needs.

8. Offers Hours to Meet Your Crazy Schedule

If you are a home school family, parent of a school-age child, retiree, college student or working professional with a flexible schedule, you can take advantage of our early day lesson times. We are the largest school in the area and able to be a ‘full service’ music provider. This allows us to offer lessons as early as 10 am and we see many students between the hours of 11 am- 8:30 pm (M-F). 

9. Music Can Be a Year-Round Enrichment to Your Child’s Life

The good news is that music will benefit a person’s life whenever it’s introduced. To maximize the positive effects of music on your child’s life, how open-minded would you be about a seasonal approach to music? Just as sports are seasonal, music can rotate from instrument to instrument or can be a long-term commitment to a single instrument. The possibilities are unlimited. If you find yourself looking for some consistency when scheduling your lessons, you’re in luck….Rockwall School of Music offers lessons year-round, including summer! Enrollment is month to month with no long-term commitment required. You have a secured day and time each week for your lesson. Private lessons can start anytime throughout the year.

10. What’s Most Important to Me is the Convenience-Factor!

How awesome would it be if you could shop, snack or pamper yourself while your child is receiving music lessons? Our new, state-of-the-art facility, located at 1920 Mims Road (at the corner of Mims Rd and Ralph Hall P’way) is surrounded by salons, shopping options and food establishments. You deserve to treat yourself to some quality time while your child is being treated to lessons. Our new location is easy to access from I-30, highway 205, Ridge Rd, or John King Blvd. This makes access super simple for our students from all parts of Rockwall, Heath, Wylie, Lavon, Fate, Royse City, Caddo Mills, Greenville, Forney, Rowlett, Sunnyvale, Garland and Mesquite.

11. The Elephant in the Room (The Safety of My Child)

The Rockwall School of Music has a Family Safety Plan. In addition to our standard safety feature of only hiring teachers with pristine background checks, observation windows in all the doors, as well as, a monitoring system installed in the interior and exterior common areas and all teaching rooms. The office staff will continue to always be present anytime lessons are taught. Finally, we always have an open-door policy which means parents/guardians are always invited to sit in on your child’s lessons. Our commitment to safety and musical excellence dates back over two decades to 1996. Our full-time mission is evident in the thousands of lessons which have been taught to over 5,000 families.

12. A Little Bragging

We saved this for last because it’s certainly not the most important aspect of what we do….your child is the most important part of what we do. However, the environment in which the lessons are provided is something worth mentioning. As a part of our community of musicians, you will receive something that is a missing component from other teaching studios in the area…we offer the most technologically advanced and fully stocked music lesson rooms in Rockwall!

Our rooms are stocked with everything you need for music lessons, including amps, full drum kits with pads, keyboards, pianos and more. All you need to bring is your instrument (pianos and drums excluded, lol). We have spent thousands of dollars on our studio to offer soundproofing, quality professional instruments, observation windows, and security. All of this allows you to have the peace of mind in knowing that you have made the BEST decision!

All three of my children began taking lessons in the fall. My oldest has really enjoyed learning the violin and my two youngest are having fun with piano. Their teachers have far exceeded our expectations with their instruction, encouragement, and passion for music. In fact, they have made it so enjoyable, that I decided to sign up for piano lessons myself! I would highly recommend the Rockwall School of Music.

We have been going to Rockwall School of Music for five years and have had nothing but wonderful experiences with the teachers and the staff. I would recommend Rockwall School of Music to anyone who has a desire to learn any musical instrument. Our children thrived under the tutelage of Rockwall School of Music instructors and have gone on to become worship leaders at local area churches. Thank you, Rockwall School of Music, for helping us cultivate our children’s musical talents.

Since learning guitar, my son has had the opportunity to play in a worship band for 6 years and is currently playing in a few other worship bands on an as needed basis, around the metroplex. Russ Porter, Owner, is a fantastic owner/manager of the school. He employs the very best music teachers across the board, from guitar, piano, voice, etc. My son is currently at UNT majoring in Business but still has a passion for music, which was instilled from his growth and development from the Rockwall School of Music. I would highly recommend this music school, no matter what age. I forgot to mention, my husband even took guitar from the Rockwall School of Music!

Andy A.

I can’t say enough good things – friendly, helpful front office staff. Private lesson days are his very favorite day of the week. It has so much fun to watch his musical ability grow.

Colby P.

Rockwall School of Music is a gem in Rockwall, providing students of any age a variety of quality music experiences. I’ve moved around the country and have never come across another place like it, and I think a large part of that is because the owners are really upstanding, positive people who really care about providing the kids (and adults) with the highest quality music education they can. I love the place and its positive, professional atmosphere and continual nurturing of all types of musical education. I send everyone who asks for private lessons over to RSM. Highly recommended!

Donna R.

My grandson has been taking guitar lessons for about 4 years at Rockwall School of Music. Prior to attending RSM he had been receiving in home lessons and was good, but couldn’t read the music. Now his performance, knowledge and ability to read the music is phenomenal. In addition to taking guitar lessons at RSM he received instruction on the piano for a semester. This spring he will be “cutting” his first CD and we are so proud. The entire RSM Team add a great value and are the reason we return each semester. Great job to all!
