Have you ever thought about bringing rock bands into your teaching studio? Many teachers would be interested in this kind of ensemble playing experience, and the positive introduction it provides to music.
But few would think of bringing this to preschool students.

Learn how Dave Simon’s preschool rock bands work in this episode.
