Confined to mountainless Lubbock until his wife completed med school, Jeremy Roberts decided to create his own crags. Today 7,200 square feet of his 10,000-square-foot gym, Defying Gravity, consists of surfaces for top-rope climbing and bouldering. After staffers walk them through techniques for safe climbing, students of all skill levels can scale green, pink, orange, and blue terrain. Shorter walls cater to beginners, while a towering rock wall challenges advanced climbers and intermediate Peter Pans. The personnel also provide military training, host climbing parties, and rent out gear such as harnesses, chalk bags, and climbing shoes.

Dustin Adams merges formal knowledge and on-stage experience into lessons that rock and roll students into a variety of instrument lessons. After a free consultation, lessons will be designed to harmonize with each student’s experience and abilities, allowing both novices and veterans to progress in rhythm with their own internal metronomes. Piano, drum, and guitar lessons emphasize fluency in the language of music, with students learning to read, write, and translate tunes into Esperanto. Other aspects vary by instrument: percussionists practice drumstick dexterity to tap out beats and skewer sushi; pianists perform scale and chord exercises and study the art of improvisation; and guitarists make strings croon with picking and finger-style techniques. Lessons take place in Adams’ home studio or can be conducted over the Internet via web cam.
