Dave Simon’s Rock School takes a unique approach to teaching kids to learn to play the piano. Piano lessons and keyboard lessons get a whole new breath of life in a fun and exciting environment.
Our piano instructors teach sight reading, pop songs, and improvisation. All students in the school learn from the Rock School Keyboard Method Book which walks students through the world of rock, pop, blues, jazz and solo playing. Beginner level students learn from traditional piano method books to learn reading and theory. This approach prepares them to transition to the Rock School Keyboard Method Book and band program.
Younger students at Rock School also get a chance to play piano in our children’s music class called Kidzrock. Kidzrock uses an abbreviated music notation to help children understand basic note and chord playing.
There are incredible benefits to teaching kids to play piano early on. Mentally, it helps to foster a growing sense of self-confidence. Physically, it helps to establish good hand-eye coordination and increased focus. Piano lessons have actually been shown to improve math skills, language skills and understanding, and reading skills. It utilizes areas of the brain which are otherwise greatly unused and has actually been shown to improve test scores.
