(ROCKWALL, TX – April 24, 2019) Russ and Karen Porter, owners of the Rockwall School of Music, are excited to invite the community to tour their new state-of-the-art music studio, located at 1920 Mims Rd in Rockwall, on Thursday, May 2nd for the Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting at 1:20 PM followed by the official Grand Opening Festivities on Saturday, May 4th from 1-4 PM.

“This is a dream come true for Karen and me,” said Russ Porter, director for the School of Music. “This two year process has had many ups and downs but we are now super excited to invite our community to drop by and tour our building.”

The Rockwall School of Music has been a staple of the Rockwall community for almost 22 years and currently has an enrollment of over 500 students who receive weekly music lessons in piano, guitar, voice, drums, violin, viola, cello, bass, musical theater and ukulele. This new, 4,150 sq ft building has 17 teaching studios along with a performance venue for students to showcase their musical talents for friends and family. With this additional teaching space, the enrollment can easily accommodate 850 students.

Private lessons, which allows students 1-1 instruction from a university-trained instructor, is by far the most popular option. However, some students, who want to test the waters and try out a specific instrument, have the option of enrolling in a small group class with a few other beginners before venturing into private lessons. Summer music camps are also an important part of RSM’s summer schedule.

The Rockwall School of Music for many years has received the prestigious ‘Best Music Studio/Lessons’ award along with the Reader’s Choice Best Music Lessons Award.’

As a special incentive, a $500 cash award will be given to one winner who enrolls for private lessons or a summer music camp between now and the end of the Grand Opening on May 4th.
