our purpose

Leaders of Rock is a music school for singer-songwriters of contemporary pop and rock music.

We teach young people of all ages how to sing and play the guitar / piano.

We believe that every person has a story to tell, and music is a fantastic platform to explore one’s personality and improve one’s confidence.

Through our private and group music lessons, holiday programs and performances, we help aspiring musicians take their passion and turn it into a reality.
