Hi! I'm Thomas McRocklin...

I've been playing guitar since I was 4 years old - and I've been lucky enough to learn from some of the greatest guitar players in the world.

I've performed with so many amazing musicians - Joe Satriani, Zakk Wylde, Steve Lukather, Larry Mitchell, Stu Hamm, and of course my friend and mentor - Steve Vai.

School of McRock is the place where I share everything I’ve learned from years of playing with these legendary guitarists - as well as my own insights and techniques.

I'm so confident you'll love it that I'll let you try it completely free for 14 days.

I created this platform for the modern guitarist. Most guitar tuition follows a specific formula and I want to break out of that and offer a more fun, direct way of teaching people my approach to playing.- Thomas McRocklin
