Who started Kidzrock and how is it different than other programs?
Dave Simon, owner of Dave Simon’s Rock School in St. Louis, developed Kidzrock in 2010. He originally founded Rock School in 2003. The school catered to pre-teen and teenagers. Dave wanted to broaden his school’s appeal by offering programming for a younger age group.
Private lessons proved to be a challenge for children younger than 7 due to the mechanical challenges for smaller hands. Dave observed from his own young children that they had basic sense of rhythm and melody. He devoted a year to experimenting with instruments and song structures that would utilize young children’s musical strengths making playing in a rock band a reality.
Word about the program spread quickly and it became an immediate success in St. Louis. Kidzrock is now offered in arts centers, music schools, elementary schools and summer camps around the country.
Kidzrock is the only program in the US that makes the rock band experience accessible to children as young as 4.
Kidzrock is licensed to over 14 music schools in Missouri, Illinois, Ohio, North Carolina, Texas, Michigan, Alabama, Louisiana, Massachusetts, California and Colorado.
This new approach to music education is proof that you are never too young to rock ‘n’ roll.
