Peter Simon, Children's Concerts

300 Years of Musical history in 35 entertaining minutes, complete with Test!  One of Peter Simon’s greatest career rewards has been performing elementary, middle and high school programs around the world.  Over twenty years of performances that have influenced hundreds of thousands of students, teachers and parents, Peter Simon has penetrated even the smallest of rural schools as a musical missionary for the beauty, power and educational benefits of classical music

“Children are the future of America,” he says. “We must invest in them for our future.”

“Kids have a real hunger to learn. They are so saturated and inundated with rock, rap and country music, but with little or nothing of the beauty and dignity of classical music. I’m on a crusade to introduce them to this unique and powerful art form.”   - - -  Peter Simon

A champion of music education, Peter Simon has been guest speaker for numerous civic and social organizations on "the Importance of Music Education in Schools & Everyday Life".
