Lessons on Drums, Bass, Keyboard, Guitar, Voice and Songwriting


Master an instrument while learning the songs you love. Study at your own pace. Do it for fun or take it more seriously – at Rockstart we’ll tailor lessons and a home practice plan to suit your individual needs.

Our lessons are inclusive. We want every student to be able to afford music lessons. Our lessons begin at $15!

Our teachers have Working With Children Checks and years of teaching, performing, and recording experience. We have a recording set up too. Many of our students go on to write and record their own songs. If you are a drum student you need to have lessons at Rockstart. Our lessons are on professional quality maple Gretsch acoustic drum kits. Come and try them out, they sound amazing!

Rockstart started out in 2009 as a home based business. Since then we have outgrown the home, and moved into a professional space right in the heart of St Kilda. It’s easy to get to  by car or tram.

Some of our students have been with us now for more than five years. We have found the key to harnessing students’ interest is focusing on learning songs they are listening to, and are passionate about learning.

During lessons students have learned songs by artists such as  AC/DC, Trapped Under Ice, Green Day, Skrillex, Soundgarden, Chainsmokers, Ed Sheeran, Tool, Metallica, Sia, Taylor Swift, Suicidal Tendencies, Guns N Roses, Pink Floyd, The Living End, Misfits, Outkast, Code Orange and Rage Against the Machine.
