At ROOS STUDIOS, we do all things music.
Each student's course of instruction is individually tailored to reflect a preference of music genre as a primary motivating factor to make learning fun. They offer instruction in Piano, Drums, Guitar and Songwriting. All lesson plans incorporate a balance of theory, technique, composer history and song origin. Lessons are designed to equip each student with the tools necessary to be versatile in any musical setting. A variety of classical, pop, Broadway, etc. are incorporated throughout the curriculum. Josh and Liz are a team of highly creative musicians who teach, play, create and inspire their students to write their own music.
*Instructors are background-checked and FBI cleared
