We are excited to announce two new lessons teachers joining our School of Rock family!

1. Emy Menna

Guitar/Bass/Keys Instructor

Emy is a bass and guitar player coming right from the city of Chicago. As a youth she spent her time diving into music and began playing guitar at the age of 10. Soon after picking up the bass at age 12, she fell in love with the passionate displays of aggression and emotion found in both heavy metal and soul music. Emy was a member of the school of rock for 5 years, playing in the house band for two of those years. She has now gone on to play bass with many different bands ranging from hip hop to reggaeton to hardcore punk. Emy is also a graduate of the LA recording connection and records local artists in the hopes to one day open her own studio. She is thrilled for the opportunity to have her students become as passionate about their instrument as she is!

2. Robert Tungett

Guitar & Drum Instructor helping with Little Wing & Rookies

Robert has been playing drums for 10+ years and guitar for 5+ years. He's dedicated his life to music, playing in multiple bands throughout the years and releasing his own music as well. His goal with teaching his students is to help build and nurture that spark of creativity that makes playing music so special.


February is Black History Month!

Rock and Roll music would not be anything close to what it is today without the Black Rock and Roll pioneers who helped shape the genre.
