Black Hills FOX Business: The Music Room & Outside In Children's Indoor Playground

SPEARFISH & RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - Two musicians in Spearfish are letting their passion for music shine through by inspiring others and helping turn dreams into creations.

Whether you are a beginner or a professional, The Music Room at 931 E Colorado Blvd. in Spearfish is hoping to be a hub for innovation and practice.

The business offers half-hour music lessons in percussion and drums, guitar, piano, and also features a studio where artists can come and record.

Management says they educate more than 70 young people per week and say because support for music in school is scarce, they are glad to be a hub for learning.

"When kids come in here and they see people in the recording studio able to record the stuff that they've written, uh they kind of see that the process to get there is the lessons and they come in and they're like 'man I want to do that, I want to be in the studio someday and were like well, we can get you there," said Caleb Garza, manager of The Music Room.

"Whether you've not ever played music before or you're a profession, we wanted to create a place where you could come and have something available to you whether it's beginner lessons or studio work," said Adam Jones, owner.

It is paradise for the little ones and parents. Plus, a place for these two outdoor enthusiasts to share their love for the Black Hills.

Mother of two, Taryn Pike, and her business partner Kelsey Demers are the owners of the new Outside in Children's Indoor Playground sitting at 544 Century Rd. in Rapid City.

The 5,000 square-foot space is broken up into infant and toddler areas. There are some walking toys and soft play items for kids under one, and then a 20 by 24 play structure that can engage up to 50 kids at a time. There is also a coffee bar and snacks to keep parents and caregivers happy. Between the numerous activities available and space for parties, Pike and Demers say its the perfect medium for good fun and connectivity.

"To give them a place to go during the cold winter months or even in the Summer months when the weather isn't cooperating. To be able to come indoors, use your imagination, play unrestricted, and give another option for parents to engage with each other as well," said Pike said.

Outside In is open seven days a week. To check out their hours and affordable membership options, stop by, give them a call, or visit their website at www.outsideindoorplay.com
