About Us



(Corner of Ralph Hall Parkway and Mims Road)

 The Rockwall School of Music was founded in 1996 by a group of music instructors who wanted to share their love of music with the community. Purchased by local residents Russ & Karen Porter in 2004, the school has continued to grow and serve local musicians of all ages for many years since. Today, our amazing teachers help to foster a musical culture in the Rockwall area by inspiring and motivating generations of music students as they navigate the challenging but exciting waters of their musical voyage!


We have some key principles that we always stand behind.  The Rockwall School of Music promises that:

  • Your teacher will be university trained from an accredited university or the equivalent.
  • Your lesson will be taught in a distraction-free environment, which allows the ultimate scenario for success.
  • Your lesson will be taught in a safe environment and by an instructor who has received a pristine background check.
  • The safety of your child is priority #1 while they are away from your immediate supervision.
  • You can enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that music lessons are provided summer, winter, spring and fall.
  • Our year-round approach to teaching allows for multiple recitals and other performing opportunities for your student.
