Since its inception in 2008, Boise Rock School has been led by the belief that the best way to get individuals excited about learning music is to have them play in a group, and that it’s undeniably important for students to be learning or writing music that they love.

The YMCA’s mission is to strengthen the foundations of community by developing successful youth, engaging people in healthy living, and instilling a commitment to social responsibility.
