Who we are


Richards Rock Academy™ is the rock band program at Richards Guitar Studio in Aston, PA (Visit website here). Our students pursue music with passion and excellence. Rock band members have the opportunity to choose songs for their band, write original songs with other students, and play frequent live shows in Delco and beyond. We select ambitious music, as well as popular favorites as part of en eclectic, challenging, and musically rewarding repertoire.

Our students work with professional teachers and have consistently improved beyond their own expectations. We are frequently impressed by our students meeting high standards, and members enjoy a positive rock band experience in the process. 

What sets us apart from our competitors?

Our bands stay together once formed for as long as possible. This allows the students to grow together and tackle more ambitious and rewarding projects. Our program is as close to a real-life band situation as possible. The students become close friends, develop musical chemistry, and take ownership of their band (creating band name, logos, social media presence, discussing band initiatives with members, etc.). Some of our bands have been together for more than a year and perform with increasing professionalism, as well as add a wide range of songs to their growing set list that could not be achieved in other rock band program formats. Occasionally, students even find shows for their own bands, so their band takes on a life of its own outside of the Rock Academy.
