The Rock Teacher

Rory Cain – The Rock Teacher

Rory Cain is a full-time professional music instructor with over 10 years experience. He specializes in guitar, bass, and ukulele lessons. He has played with various acts that have brought him all over the country and even to Europe, regularly performing for crowds of upwards of 4,000 people at a time. While extremely well versed in contemporary styles such as Rock, Blues, Soul, R&B, and Gospel, Rory is also classically trained and can bring any level of guitarist, bassist, or ukulele player to the next level they hope to achieve. He has taught nearly every age group, with students ranging from the ages of 5 up to 87! Previous students have gone on to attend the Girard Academy of Music Performance, the prestigious CAPA high school in Philadelphia, Berklee College of Music, and the Musician’s Institute in Los Angeles, all armed by Rory with the skills required to excel in their musical field of choice.

In addition to his performing background, Rory is also a music promoter for over a decade who has booked concerts all over the country. This, combined with his musical training, makes him the ideal teacher to lead our Rock School, as he is well versed in what goes on not only on-stage, but behind the scenes to make the entire thing happen.

Rory began his music education at the young age of 4 and is the son of two prominent music teachers and music store owners in the Philadelphia region. The Cain family carries a long history internationally for music instruction, instrument retail, music production, and concert promoting. This deep love for all aspects of music has been carried on through Rory and he continues to follow his passion of sharing the gift of music with others, whether he is teaching or performing.
