It's only rock and roll but kids like it



RHMA Overview


Red House is a music school unlike any other. Some people call it a "School of Rock." We think of it as a great alternative to plain old music lessons.


Our rehearsal space, studio, rock school program, and student concerts have provided us with an outstanding reputation in just a few years. On any given day you might hear somebody learning Van Halen, a drum student mastering a groove, or a young piano student's first lesson.


We offer instruction in piano, voice, ukulele, drums, guitar, bass, and violin. Our faculty is composed of performing and recording professionals that bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to our students. Private lessons are only part of the Red House experience, as we have something for every student, age and ability.
