At North Idaho Rock School, music is more than just notes and melodies—it's a way of life. We invite you to join our vibrant community of passionate musicians, where the joy of music is embraced, connections are forged, learning is cherished, and growth is inevitable. Together, let's make music that resonates with our souls and leaves a lasting impact on the world.

As a vibrant hub for musicians of all ages and skill levels, we foster a love for music while providing transformative learning experiences


Welcome to North Idaho Rock School, a place where music comes alive and dreams find their voice. At our school, we believe in the power of four pillars: Enjoy, Connect, Learn, and Grow. These pillars form the foundation of our philosophy, guiding us in our mission to inspire and nurture musicians of all ages and skill levels.

We understand that music is meant to be enjoyed. That's why we create a vibrant and inclusive environment where students can explore their passion, express themselves, and have fun along the way. Our dedicated instructors foster a love for music, ensuring that every student feels inspired and motivated to unleash their creativity.  
Connection is at the heart of our community. We believe in the transformative power of music to bring people together. Through collaborative experiences, students have the opportunity to connect with fellow musicians, forming lasting friendships and building a network of support. Our students thrive in an atmosphere that encourages teamwork, communication, and a sense of belonging.

Learning is a lifelong journey, and at North Idaho Rock School, we are committed to providing exceptional music education. Students can choose their instrument, whether it's guitar, piano, drums, or any other instrument that resonates with them. We offer a variety of courses tailored to their preferences, including Instrument Labs, where they can immerse themselves in group settings, private lessons for personalized guidance, and Rock Band classes, where they can experience the thrill of performing as a cohesive unit.

North Idaho Rock School is a place where growth happens. We strive to empower our students to reach their full potential, both as musicians and as individuals. Through comprehensive instruction, mentorship, and a supportive learning environment, we nurture their talents, expand their musical knowledge, and cultivate their confidence. We celebrate their achievements, big and small, as they embark on a transformative journey of self-discovery and personal growth



At North Idaho Rock School, we want our students to enjoy a rock star experience. Our goal is to make every student feel like they are important as soon as they walk through the door. We know that many students struggle with negative self talk and bad feelings and we want to combat that by treating them like an absolute rock star.

Once our students walk through our doors, they become connected with a mentor. A mentor is someone who is invested in them as a person and dedicated to walking with them on their musical journey. Our mentors are people who genuine care about the hearts of their students and can lead them to become the best musician they can dream of.


The educational factor of learning music is profound. It expands our horizons, enhances cognitive abilities, and cultivates discipline and focus. Our mentors are trained to teach our students using curriculum that has been tested, tried and true. The journey we take our students has allowed us to develop them as leaders and even hire them as teachers.

We aren’t training up bedroom musicians. Our whole goal is to build confidence and get students prepared to take the stage at any of our Busking for a Cause events or our Epic Music Festivals where students can truly have the rock star experience by performing in front of a cheering crowd.


In 2014, I started teaching guitar lessons out of my low-income apartment to supplement income and provide for my family. I did this on the side for years while also holding a full time job but there was always a deeper passion inside me to change many people’s lives through music.

When COVID-19 hit the world, I lost my day job and at the same time my waiting list for guitar lessons grew. I had a few other people interested in teaching in the space I was renting and so I decided to pull the trigger and in January 2021, North Idaho Rock School was born.

"My child's passion for music has truly flourished since joining the rock band class at North Idaho Rock School. Seeing her confidently strumming the bass guitar and rocking out on stage fills my heart with joy. It's incredible to witness her happiness and the incredible friendships she's formed with fellow bandmates. North Idaho Rock School has given my daughter a platform to shine, and I couldn't be more grateful."
"I can’t say enough good things about Jacob and his team at North Idaho rock school. They have a passion for music and for kids. They are determined to make a difference in our community and it has been amazing watching the school grow in the 6 months we have been a part of it. Elijah is so patient and has made learning piano such a fun experience for my daughter."
When I first signed my son up for drums with the organization, I was unsure. He was luke-warm about participating as he has some bad experiences with the school band being “boring” and having to “babysit” younger players. He really loves playing with the band. I highly encourage anyone who is on the fence about trying this group to please give them a try!


At North Idaho Rock School, our mission is to change lives through music. We strive to create a dynamic learning environment where students of all ages can enjoy a rock star experience, connect with rock star mentors, learn on rock star curriculum and grow as a rock star performer. Our students develop their talents, and build the confidence and skills necessary to succeed as musicians and individuals. Our focus is on providing high-quality instruction in a fun and supportive atmosphere, while fostering a sense of community and encouraging students to explore their creativity and express themselves through music.
