Music Academy Asheville Rock Academy kidsAsheville Musician and performer Anne Coombs realized a need for music-education in the community. In 1996, she founded, operated, and owned The Asheville Music School on Charlotte Street. Anne began holding guitar jam camps while students were on summer school break. In 2008, her guitar jam camps developed into what is now The Rock Academy, a year-round performance studies program. 2009 saw Anne open Asheville Music School West, which she later rebranded as Music Academy Asheville. Anne’s dream to ensure that all children would have access to a music education became the inspiration for Give to the Music, a 501©3 non-profit. It provides tuition for private music lessons, performance classes and tutoring, and instruments and musical equipment for children in need of financial assistance in 2011.

Music Academy Asheville songwriters circleAnne partnered with Steve and Dena Clark in 2017. The Clarks have been involved with The Rock Academy since its inception. Steve provides his more than 33 years of financial management experience, and Dena has been on the Give to the Music Board of Directors since its inception. The strengths these partners bring will insure the school continues to grow and serve the community well into the future.

Rock Academy and Music Academy Summer Camps are the perfect place for young musicians who want the coolest of summer camp experiences to meet and play with others. Students spend one week, in a hands-on atmosphere, at our state of the art Rock Academy rehearsal space, perfecting their performance skills as individuals and most importantly, as a band.

Not only will they meet and interact with other talented young rockers, they’ll learn from a staff of professional musicians, who will share their experience and knowledge to help students learn valuable music industry-related skills.

Rock Summer Camps are also a great introduction to the Rock Academy core program.
