We've Taught Over 50,000 Lessons!
Founded by Dave Arazmo in 2003 as Tampa Guitar School, with one location on Hillsborough avenue, American Rock School grew quickly in popularity.
In 2008, we changed our name to "American Rock School" and added a second location.
While we teach a variety of styles, rock is the most popular and - no matter what style our students desire — we will make our best efforts to get them to rock at it. So the term "rock" describes more than just a style of music, it refers to our commitment: that you will rock.
Why learn here? Good question. Aside from having the coolest instructors, we're local and we support the local community. Our instructors live here and many grew up and received their education in Florida. Our goal is to provide you with quality instruction, versatile skills, and a place to launch your music career (if you decide to) while providing the place to network with area musicians.
We teach rock guitar, blues guitar, jazz guitar, classical and country guitar. We have lessons on piano, voice, drums, clarinet, saxophone, cello and violin. It is important to learn something about other styles because they will broaden your horizons as a musician. Why not sooner than later? Also, performing in front of your peers in one of our student recitals held in the Spring and Fall. We are sure that you will find the right teacher for you or your child here, so try us out by registering for a trial lesson this week. American Rock School has 2 Tampa locations and is expanding. We are proud of our students and showcase them in our recitals twice a year. Students are not required to perform, but they are encouraged to by their instructor when they are ready.
We are proud to have been providing lessons here at American Rock School since 2003. We're celebrating our 8th year! We've taught over 50,000 music lessons!
