    Dave Brandt is terrific. He chooses relevant songs my kids really enjoy learning & practicing, and he is super-encouraging of their strengths while challenging & stretching them in the areas they need to improve. He is incredibly knowledgeable. Each of my 4 kids' skills have improved greatly because of their lessons, and they all love Mr. Dave!

  • Sarah

    Dave is energetic and positive. He helps our child push to the next level!

  • Kristen Docter

    K's confidence has strengthened since her first lesson with Dave. Dave has an incredible ability to make you feel at ease and has a positive take on critiquing. I would highly recommend Dave as a vocal and keyboard instructor.

    Grace (vocal-singing) and Dylan (keyboard) have been getting lessons at RockShow for a few years now. Dave, Kelly, and their family/staff are wonderful! My kids have learned so much. Dave works with each of them to perform their very best. Grace has really blossomed under Dave's guidance. Couldn't ask for a better instructor.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We like to get to know our students so we can give them an individualized - customized - learning experience.  We find out what they're interested in learning or which areas they wish to improve in  - and hone in on a study plan to achieve their goals.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

BA in Music SIUE and an MA in Educational Administration from Lindenwood University.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Private lessons are $25/half hour and we do offer sibling discounts.  Classes and Show Participation fees vary.

How did you get started teaching?

Kelley and Dave have been teaching music and theater to kids for many years!  Of course we started as young performers ourselves and our love of that experience when we were kids is what led us to become teachers.

What types of students have you worked with?

All kinds!

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Being asked by Kirkwood Community Kids theater to Direct/Choreograph/Music Direct their production of "Mulan"

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

A student should have some idea of what they want to achieve from the learning experience and then find a teacher who can work with them to achieve their goals.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What are you trying to learn/improve upon?
Are you prepared to put practice time in?
Are you aware that private lessons are different than typical school because the teacher is there to specifically help YOU?
