Dave Simon’s Rock School is a year-round music school that offers programs designed to make playing music fun and easy for kids. Our school’s founder developed programs that make playing in a rock band a reality for kids on day 1. Our 1 and 2-week summer camps place kids into bands as they work together to prepare for an end-of-camp concert. Campers take private lessons on their instrument as well as every instrument in the band (guitar, bass, drums and piano). This is a great opportunity for your child to develop their love of music and realize their potential.
Your child will love this fun and creative camp experience. Campers are placed into rock bands as they work together to prepare for their end-of-camp concert. Campers take private lessons on their instrument as well as every instrument in the band (guitar, bass, drums and piano). Summer Camp also includes workshops in songwriting, improvisation, and percussion. This is a great opportunity for your child to develop their love of music and realize their potential.
“This was – HANDS DOWN – our best camp experience in the St Louis area. My son was excited to go every day, and at the end of a short week, he was playing Sunshine of Your Love and Guns N’ Roses. It boosted his musical confidence – and expanded his interests. We’ll be back for drum lessons!”
Campers are divided by age and skill level into different bands. Each band will create their musical direction with their band director as they prepare to record and perform in a concert. The first week of camp is devoted to rehearsing and recording. The second week of camp is devoted to preparing for the camp concert in the school’s performance center.
SUMMER CAMP MUSIC LESSONS
Each camper will alternate between lessons on their primary instrument as well as the other instruments in the rock band (drums, guitar, bass guitar, and keyboards). Campers receive a lesson booklet to track their progress on each instrument during camp. Campers take these booklets home so they can continue working on a variety of skills after camp.
AFTER-CAMP MUSIC LESSONS
Campers who are interested in taking private lessons will be able to sign up for 30-minute lessons at the end of camp with their instructor of choice.
Our nationally renowned workshops are designed to encourage a child’s creative expression and build their music communication skills. Our workshops in songwriting, improvisation, and percussion focus on experiential learning in a fun and social setting.
Each day campers will take a break from the music for some outdoor sports and activities. We have a large green field with shaded areas. It’s perfect for a game of kickball.
