August Update


First, we are welcoming Matt Upton aboard as our new drum instructor! Garet did an excellent job, and he'll be missed, but he has many other commitments, most importantly his little girl Avery. Never fear, though, Matt is an excellent musician and will be an excellent instructor. He will be starting in September, but feel free to contact us today and book your lessons.

Second, we will have several students performing at SooeyFest again this year. This time, we hope to have some of them performing songs together as bands! Look out!

Last, but certainly not least, we have a special offer for NEW students. If you sign up for guitar, bass, harmonica, vocal, or keyboard lessons from September through December, we will GIVE you a free instrument! (Restrictions apply; see us for details; maximum $120 value). Acoustic or electric guitar, bass guitar, harmonica, stage or studio microphone, electronic keyboard. What more incentive do you need?!?!?

July Update

July is almost over! Heat waves, brown grass appearing in yards, and getting ready for school. While you're thinking about new clothes, backpacks, and supplies, be sure to remember your student's musical growth too. Private instruction from Rock U will help your student develop into a better musician in less time. Contact us today!

May Update

What are your kids going to do when school's out this week? Think about that. Really . . .  think about that.  Why not sign them up for some of the great opportunities that Rock U provides? We offer lessons on a WIDE variety of instruments at reasonable prices right here in town. We're also going to offer a WIDE variety of Art courses for June as well. Keep in mind that enrollment in each class is limited, so contact us ASAP to learn about our course offerings and schedules.

The recording studio is mostly finished. A couple of small items will complete the setup. Are you a singer/songwriter looking to get a decent demo completed without breaking the bank? Check in with us and see what kind of deal we can make with you.

Songwriter Night meets weekly at the Rock U studio on 118 East 6th Street from 6-8 pm. We've had to cancel the last couple of meetings due to my slow and painful recovery from shoulder surgery, but we should be back on track. What does it entail? Well, it's pretty simple. People show up. We help each other write songs. Sometimes we jam on our instruments a little. Sometimes we sit around and solve the world's problems. Mostly, we have fun and immerse ourselves in the world of music.

Late April Update

We've had a couple of Art classes go, but they're still not taking off like they should. We're going to try for a couple of more months; hopefully, we start getting adequate enrollment.

Our recording service is nearly up and running. Contact us for a good deal on recording your demo!

Music lessons, still our main priority, are doing very well. We would love to sign you up for the summer!

Big News! Tell Your Friends! Tell Your Enemies Too!

I mentioned previously that there was Big News on the horizon for us here at Rock U. Well, there is more to come, but here's the BIG NEWS flash for today.

Rock University will be offering ART INSTRUCTION in February!

We realize that this is a bit of a tangent from our initial mission, but we feel that the need exists in Neoga, especially since we have no Art courses in our school district. Additionally, we feel that many adults might be interested in furthering their skills as well.

Here's how it'll work. We have four instructors who have tentatively agreed to try this out, all of whom have previously worked in our schools, have lived in our town, or have taught some of our kids in their nearby studios. I'll withhold names for now, until plans are finalized.

I hope for each instructor to teach TWO small group classes per week, focusing on various types of art such as watercolors, pastels, acrylic and/or oil painting, sculpture, etc. Offerings will be finalized in January, and then we'll post the schedule and begin student sign up.

Classes will be located next door to Rock U, in the office formerly housing Krueger Insurance. Due to limited space in the back room, the classes will be limited to 4 or 5 students. Stay tuned for more details, and don't hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.


Dawn James will be offering group piano/pre-percussion lessons in the front room of the Krueger building in February. Students of all ages (4 and up) are encouraged to sign up. Do you have a little one who shows musical interest or aptitude? Are you an adult who has been hesitant to try private lessons? These small group formats will be ideal for either situation! So, don't hesitate, contact us today!
