The Rock Academy is affiliated with an exclusive group of elite music teachers from around the world. This collection of music teachers is unlike anything else on the planet. In this group Brad Litton, president and founder of The Rock Academy, learns all kinds of things about how to help students get bigger results, have more fun, overcome their problems, and discuss what works and doesn’t work with the best music teachers on the planet. Each of our teachers go through required training on how to implement and use all of this information to help students get bigger results in much less time. This is the biggest factor that has allowed The Rock Academy to help students get THREE TIMES more results on their instrument as opposed to other methods.

I am super excited! I've been very limited to about 15 chords, and where they and a capo can take me in my songwriting, so I started taking guitar lessons again. I have to give thanks to Brad Litton, of The Rock Academy, for asking the right questions on what I felt I needed improvement in, and truly listening to my answer I thought sounded rather broad and confused. I know I said I needed help with different strumming patterns, so that every song doesn't end up sounding the same. Anyhow, in just my first few lessons I learned about timing, beats, strumming patterns, accents on patterns, and 12 new chords to add to my repertoire. So after an extremely dry spell in songwriting, I FINALLY have a new tune!! And it's completely different sounding than anything I've ever written, because it's all new chords, and it's a waltz! I've never written a waltz or anything in 3/4. Frankly, I don't even know what any of my songs are in...I just write and play mainly by ear. So, it's pretty cool to write a song in 3/4 with all new chords, strumming, and accents. Now it just needs words. :)

  • We will set up an initial FREE introductory lesson for you. During this first lesson we will talk with you and assess where you are with your playing, what your ultimate goals are, and what you need in order to take the next step. If you're a beginner we'll simply get started right away.
  • After assessing where you are currently and what you want to achieve we will set up a plan with expectations and deadlines that is tailored to your specific goals and needs in order to effectively solve your music playing problems. We will continuously refine the plan as needed by keeping track of your progress and frequently revising your goals.
  • We have regular workshops, clinics, and masterclasses on various topics and jam sessions. Workshops are great opportunities for students to expand their knowledge and focus on specific aspects of their playing. While jam sessions are great confidence boosters, give you an opportunity to apply things you know, and are just plain fun!
  • We will show you how to practice every single exercise we give you so when you are at home you will know EXACTLY what to do. Plus we'll have it all in writing for you each week.
  • Professional, clean learning environment and equipment. When you come to The Rock Academy for lessons, you don’t need to worry about there being pets, small children, or other distractions during your lessons. Not only do we have several rooms that hold classes, but they’re clean and pet hair free. We also make sure that we have quality equipment for all the lessons including instruments, chairs, music stands, etc.
  • Exclusive Geometric Learning Approach. The Rock Academy is the only place in the Uintah Basin that uses the Geometric Learning Approach to help students get results faster and have more fun along the way. Because of this, our students learn more useful things at one time, integrate those skills together faster, and have fun! Instead of learning one topic and mastering it for 2-3 years, we cover several topics at the same time in order to get you to do more right away, have more fun, and integrate your skills together.
  • Awesome Supplementary Classes you won’t find anywhere else. The Rock Academy is home to several exclusive classes that you can’t find anywhere else in the Uintah Basin. Not only are our regular lessons unlike any other lessons in the Basin, but we also are home to several supplementary classes like the Guitar Bootcamp, Singing Bootcamp, Improvisation Training Class, Songwriting Class, Performance Class, Music Theory Class, Ear Training Class, and we’re adding more. These classes will take your skills above and beyond anything else!
  • Track Your Goals and Progress. We’re going to talk about your goals a lot because everything we do is based on your goals. Then we make a strategy for you to reach your goals. Ultimately, we’re going to track your progress each week in lessons. We’ll document what you’re learning when, in what order, what’s coming next, any breakthroughs you have, etc. We keep a file on every student and we’ll keep yours full with all of that so you know that we do have a plan for you to reach your goals and we’re not just flying by the seat of your pants.
  • Practice Support. We’re going to show you exactly how to practice what you need to practice. Plus we’re going to lay out exactly what you need to be practicing in a practice schedule that you’ll be using all week as you practice. This is going to make practicing super easy! On top of that, we also have other tools that you may use like the Monthly Practice Log and Metronome Speed Log that will help you see how much progress you’re making even more! Most teachers will just tell you to practice more, we’re going to help you make sure you get the most out of your practice so it’s as effective as possible.
  • Live Performance Opportunities. Just about every music teacher has recitals. We have concerts. Our concerts are an awesome experience in and of themselves. We use our teachers and sometimes other musicians for a live backing band and have all sorts of awesome things going on. Everybody who’s been to our concerts talks about how awesome they are and we love to do them.
  • Hang out with your fellow students. We like to get together to hang out. We’ve had a lot of parties in the past where we play games, have food, watch concerts and music related movies, play Rockband, etc. It’s a lot of fun to get students together in a no pressure environment where we just have fun and get to know each other better.
  • Discounts on all sorts of things. We have dealerships to get in any instruments, accessories, and other stuff you may need. Students of the Rock Academy get 15% off of all of this so you can get things for as good or better than you’ll find anywhere online. We don’t keep a huge inventory, but we’re happy to order in anything you need for a good deal. You shouldn’t have to put up with an inferior equipment or instrument, we’ll help you get something that is quality and will fit your budget. Got multiple family members that want to take lessons? Or maybe you want to take lessons for multiple instruments? We have discounts for those. As a student, we can get you the awesome Guitar Pro software (not just for guitar/guitar players) for HALF OFF as well!
We want to help you be successful. To get things started, tell us more about yourself, your goals, and any problems or frustrations you may be dealing with now. Then we’ll get your free introductory lesson set up so we can have you come in, meet one of our awesome teachers, go over all of our different classes, options, etc. and find what will work best for you and your goals.
