to school


My 5 year old daughter participated in The Taste of NTC Creative Arts Spring Break camp and had a wonderful time. She was up, excited, and ready to go back to camp each morning. I love that she was able to try out such a variety of classes and meet a nice group of friends of all ages. I look forward to putting her in this camp again this summer.

About David

Executive Director of Recreational Music Center


Recreational Music Center (RMC) is a non-profit community music school in Point Loma who has students of all ages and from many schools across San Diego county whom we love to support equally. Our mission is to cultivate the joy of making music through relevant, cutting edge teaching methods, making them available to everyone regardless of financial resources or other barriers.

RMC’s vision is that arts education will evolve into a more innovative, engaging, inspiring, and financially sustainable endeavor for teachers, students, and arts education supporters now and in generations to come because RMC provided a replicable model for music education in the 21st century.

Recreational Music Center was originally started as a Sole Proprietary music school by David and Leslie Gereghty in November of 2008. During the first year of business, RMC taught private, one-on-one lessons as well as group classes with over 30 students. RMC began with four qualified teachers for drums, piano, guitar, vocals, and early childhood classes.

In November of 2009, RMC elected to change its status by incorporating as a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization in order to better meet its goals of spreading quality music education to students throughout the city, county, and beyond regardless of financial resources.

Since then the school has grown to serve over a thousand students each week through off-site school programs across San Diego County and on-site private and group classes. Now with over 20 professional instructors, including 6 full time executive staff members, RMC continues to provide innovative and FUN music lessons on all instruments and for students of all ages (children as young as 6 months old to adult and even senior citizens).
