Year-Round Camps

Dave Simon’s Rock School offers camps all throughout the year. Camps are a great opportunity for your child to get a music-intensive session that can kick-start their musical development and help them advance at a heightened pace. All camps focus primarily on placing kids in a rock band setting with peers their age and skill level. Below is a breakdown of all our different camp programming:

Summer Camp (PreK-2nd and Ages 7-18)

Kidzrock Camp Ages 4-7

Kidzrock Summer Camps are offered for younger campers at COCA. Students in Kidzrock rehearse and perform on drums, electric guitar and keyboards. Band members rotate on instruments as they learn the basics of each instrument in the rock band.

Rock School Camp Ages 7-18

Dave Simon’s Rock School has St. Louis’s longest running rock camp. We place campers into rock bands as they work with a music professional recording a CD and rehearsing for an end-of-session concert. Campers will receive lessons on their instrument of choice as well as other instruments in the band (guitar, bass, drums, and piano). Summer Camp also includes workshops in singing, songwriting, improvisation and percussion.

Winter Camps (PreK-2nd and Ages 7-12)

PreK-2nd Grade

Kidzrock Camp: Play, sing and perform in a real rock band. This is a great way to introduce your child to instrumental playing.

Ages 7-12

Campers are divided by age and skill level into different bands. Each band spends the day preparing to play an end-of-camp rock concert in Rock School’s performance space.
