RockPro Music Centre
From the moment visitors enter RockPro Music Centre and see the elevated stage in the foyer, they can tell that the music emporium is anything but a typical music school. The instructors, led by musical director Chris Hummel and owner Cliff Callaway, encourage students to unleash their inner rock stars, whether they’re learning power chords on the guitar or biting the heads off microphones in the vocal room. Fledgling musicians can rock out in the band rehearsal room, honing their skills with fellow band mates in preparation of performing live. They can also head to Kids’ Rock Camp in the summer months where they can join a band and learn song-writing techniques.
