About RSG

We are the music school trusted by thousands of Henderson families for MUSIC EDUCATION AMPLIFIED since 2018!

We offer singing lessons, guitar lessons, bass lessons, piano lessons, drum lessons, DJ lessons and music production lessons for musicians, using your favorite hits for instruction because we believe it’s the music we love that makes us want to learn to play! We also combine private 1-on-1 lessons with group rehearsal experiences to teach you how to play as a band, and we put you on stage at the club venues that made Las Vegas famous!

Although we aren’t a conservatory, we do believe that understanding some theory will elevate your play. So, we partnered with a brilliant professor at the University of Dayton to offer our musicians a fun little theory book that will help you along. Written as a graphic novel, it covers the history of music and important concepts in a way that’s easy to understand. And, it’s closely aligned with music concepts covered at the middle school level within Henderson’s leading orchestra, band, and choir programs in Clark County School District!

RSG prides itself on celebrating diversity, as well as offering music instruction to students with special needs.

At RSG, your first music lesson is free, so come in and check out why our music education programs have brought joy to so many Henderson families! Music is a skill that grows with the player and provides a lifetime of fun!
