Pop vocals are almost entirely clean (no distortion), and focus on confident control and movement through the vocal registers and developing emotional, but natural, tones with seeming effortlessness. Diva skills, minus the attitude.
Rock vocals focus on seamless movement through cleans, blending in some vocal grit as the singer moves from heartbreakingly vulnerable to spine-tingling intense emotions. Lots of guitar players start here, though instruments aren't required.
Metal vocals focus heavily on grit, growls, screams and squeals, with a little goblin thrown in, and requires the most discipline of all RMA programs to not only grow skills, but prevent serious injury. We're proud to teach the correct and healthy ways to scream.
You are not restricted to one singing style at The Rock & Metal Academy.
While you will choose your genre(s) focus of study, you will be encouraged and provided opportunities by your instructors to grow and experiment so that your voice is your own individual, completely unique blend of your tastes and stylistic choices.
Vocal training is just the start of your musical journey at The Rock & Metal Academy.

Another thing that sets us apart from other music schools:
WE DO NOT CENSOR
our students musical selections.
Music is a form of communication unlike ANY other, and
ALL emotions, light and dark,
require and deserve the freedom of expression that music provides.
But above and beyond, what we at The Rock & Metal Academy are MOST proud to provide is
A SAFE PLACE FOR YOU TO BE EXACTLY WHO YOU ARE.
Music is HEALING.
Music is UNIFYING.
Music is HOME.

Here's what our students, parents and collaborators are saying...
RMA is one of the
most amazing and welcoming places on Earth.
Even though you originally come here to learn how to sing, play an instrument, or write your own songs, you end up making life-long friends and people you even begin to consider family.
The teachers will NEVER give up on you...they will keep pushing you to try new things and get out of your comfort zone until you are the best that you can be.
