The Young Rockers Program is our beginning rock band program geared towards aspiring and beginner music students. Young Rockers experience the RiverCity Rock Star Academy’s unique methods of combining weekly band rehearsals with a weekly private lesson, mid-term and a season ending show.
The Rockers Program is for teens of all musical levels.
This program includes weekly rehearsals, weekly private lessons with our talented instructors, songwriting mentorship, and the opportunity to perform at our mid-term and final shows.
The Royals Performance Group is audition-only, for advanced students, and designed to provide the experience of a real working band. Students of the Royals group will have extra opportunities to perform at community and private events, and further excel their confidence and passion for music.
Our Rebels Program is for young adult musicians of all abilities looking to play in a band. The program focuses on band rehearsal and offering a comfortable setting to learn to play in a band with other musicians in your age group. Students will perform at the mid-term and season ending shows.
The Renegade Program is for all adults (from first-time beginners to advanced musicians!) looking to play in a band once again. This program focuses on performance at a mid-term show and culminates in an end-of-term showcase at a local venue.

Here I am at 72 playing Metallica on stage with the Renegades. RiverCity is a unique opportunity at all skill levels. the teachers are not just fantastic musicians but amazing teachers. so glad I discovered this organization.
The teachers are amazing, talented, passionate musicians. They also love working with youth and it shows in their teaching. My daughter was really hesitant and nervous before her first lesson but quickly was drawn out of her shell and into the fun. Now every lesson is ‘too short’ because she is having such a good time and doesn’t want to leave. Can’t say enough about the quality of instruction here - great business all around!
RiverCity Rock Star Academy is an incredible program! What a fantastic outlet for our kid to meet other talented teens, learn new ways to collaborate and gain self-esteem. Rock on! Salem has been in need of an opportunity like this for years. Thank you for stepping up and making it happen!
