Rancho Canyon Music presents
This ain't no corporate rock show... this is reeeeal life.

Rancho Canyon Music has become famous for "Rockcital" - our yearly Concert in which any student that is ready and willing is able to join in a Rock Band with other players at our school!  AND there is no additional charge to the participating students!!  Over the years, literally hundreds of musicians have had their first taste of Rock Stardom on the Rockcital stage, and many have gone on to perform in bands of their own!
