Welcome! I'm Thomas McRocklin. I've been playing guitar since I was 4 years old.

I've been lucky enough to learn from some of the greatest guitarists in the world. I've performed with amazingly talented players such as Joe Satriani, Zakk Wylde, Steve Lukather, Larry Mitchell, Stu Hamm, and of course my friend and mentor - Steve Vai.

I started School of McRock as a place where I could share everything I’ve learned from years of playing with these legendary guitarists as well as my own insights and techniques. Take a free a trial - I'm sure you'll love it.
