A Chat with Dave Simon’s Rock School
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We believe in empowering kids through the power of rock. Personalized lessons in an easy-to-grasp format. We’re not a chain, but rather a school that focuses on matching up students with our amazing musical instructors.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
We provide the instruction, the private rooms, the instruments, and the fun. You simply provide the student!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I (Dave Simon) grew up on music. I was always in a band and I have loved sharing the power of learning with my own kids as well as to the St. Louis community for over 10 years.
What do you love most about your job?
Watching kids be amazed at what they can do. Watching the teamwork that happens when bands are formed and music is created.
Dave Simon's Rock School
At Dave Simon's Rock School, dedicated instructors help students develop musical abilities through programs centered on collaboration and live performance. In addition to private lessons, the school provides a venue for kids to cultivate skills and build confidence using the same cooperative methods that professional bands use when persuading the tour-bus driver to stop for tacos. Working together according to their experience level and skill, bands apply musical theory to perfect their sound among their ensemble, eventually presenting live shows and recording a CD in the facility's state-of-the-art studio.
