Featured Testimonial

I have personally had lessons from Angel Bartolotta. He is second to none when it comes to teaching how to play drums. I always struggled with rudiments growing up and having no discipline. He broke me of poor habits that I had developed over the years. He is very easy going, as is the entire staff at The Rock Box. Professionals through and through. I'm so happy that your dream and the gift of giving music has come to fruition.
