About Dave Simon’s Rock School

Dave Simon’s Rock  School is based on the idea that all kids love music but not all kids love lessons. We offer rock band classes, lessons and camps that make playing an instrument fun and easy which allows kids to feel confident in their musical skills.

Since our schools’ inception in 2003, Rock School founder, Dave Simon, has focused on developing a child’s love of music by reversing the educational process. He has crafted innovative teaching methods for children to be able to play music right out of the gate and continue honing their skills through a series of performance-based programs. Children who love music, and are confident in their abilities, will be eager to develop the self-discipline required to master an instrument.

 AGES 7-ADULT Our approach to lessons is based on the way kids learn a language. By listening, imitating, and speaking. Historically kids have been taught how to read music before they can speak music. The sooner a kid is up and playing, the sooner they feel a sense of success and accomplishment. Learn More >>
