"Every parent wants their kid to find their passion, and have the opportunity to work and grow towards their dream. Tuck's Rock Dojo gives this opportunity to many kids who might not find their place in school , athletic programs and rural community by bringing kids together, setting them up with a band and mentoring them through their own style of music."
Gail Trede, Eli's mom from South Reyagate, VT
- Eli was taking lessons and performance classes with Tuck for 7 years. He mastered the guitar and pushed his band, The Iridescent as a manager while at the Dojo so far that they took second place in the Battle of the Bands, at the Palladlium in Worchester.
Eli is now a proud student of the Berklee College of Music in Boston and studying to be a recording engenieer -

When playing your instrument is just not enough anymore.
We are creating bands by connecting like minded musicians, providing them a practice place (once a week for 2 hours for Senior Bands and 1 hour for Junior Bands). We teach how to play the songs they like and how to work in a team. Then once there is a set list, we organize shows for them somewhere in the Upper Valley. Sometimes its our own Show, but many times we are performing at a bigger event, like Storrs Pondaroo in Hanover, Summer Picnic Preview in Lebanon, Norwich Fair or even school dances.
These opportunities give each band member a chance to play for real audience and perfect their stage performance skills. Building their confidence in a field that they love and are encouraged to do better at.
