About Dave Simon’s Rock School
Do you have a rocker at home? Are you a rocker at heart?
Dave Simon’s Rock School is St. Louis’ original school of rock music with an active enrollment of over 250 students. Since its start in 2003, Rock School has fostered a spirit of curiosity, empowerment, and rock-star confidence in its students.
Dave Simon’s Rock School is known for its performance-based programs for ages 4-adult. Students are placed in rock bands as they work with the school’s highly skilled staff to prepare for an end-of-the-session concert and recording session. Each concert has a musical theme with goal of exposing students to all styles of popular music. Themes range from specific artists, different eras genres. Concerts are held at music venues around St. Louis such as Cicero’s, Blueberry Hill or the Rock School Performance Center. You can click HERE to learn more about our band programs!
The school also offers private lessons in guitar, bass, piano, drums, and vocals. Lessons help students build their skill set for placement in more advanced band programs. In both band and private lessons, students focus on theory, sight reading, improvisation and creative expression. Our teachers specialize in a variety of different music styles from classical to pop and of course rock. Private lessons are a time for students to explore their own personal musical interests and challenge themselves in a one-on-one setting. Dave Simon and the Rock School staff have written a series of instrumental method books ranging in skill level which all students are taught from. Learn more about our lesson program HERE!
The music never stops at Rock School. We offer the most popular rock summer camp, winter and spring break camps in St. Louis! Play in a rock band, record a CD and perform in a concert.
