The Student of the Month is Alex Bazeley- as an ongoing
workshop member, Alex is now writing and singing his own tunes, improving on his
soloing, reading Classical guitar fluently, and hey, he likes to sing Stones and Dire Straits tunes - not
bad for a 13 year old picker!
There is a "BACK to SCHOOL" discount on private lessons for new kids and new "seniors" which includes the use of a guitar to get started on!
With a 40+ year career that includes performing
with some major artists, and a teaching background that includes over 35
years of experience coaching individuals and classes both here and abroad, an Honors
degree in classical guitar, a California State teaching credential, Rockenbach Music
Studio specializes in guitar and electric bass lessons (keyboard for music theory).
The one-on-one instruction includes sight-reading, ear-training, solo transcriptions,
improvisation, song writing, and theory. All styles and levels are covered. Beginners
and veterans alike. These are very patient lessons.
I'm the head coach here, my name is Jock Rockenbach..
I play various guitars and other instruments as well as sing, compose, and
record, and . . . you probably get the picture. If you're not sure, just look
around and it will become pretty clear.
I teach students at my studio in the
Glenview District of Oakland. In addition to the private lessons, we also
hold workshops, songwritng development
sessions, recording sessions, and summer camps for enrolled students. We have
even been known to take "field trips".
I am very proud of the students here, both past and present. A web site serves as
a great way to advertise a service, but it's also a wonderful vehicle for applauding
the progress of the hard working music students.
So look around, and if you have any questions please call 510 531 5625, or
