We love to make music. You love to listen to music. Shouldn't our kids have the opportunity to learn music in school? We are banding together to raise money for Little Kids Rock, a national nonprofit that that is dedicated to unlocking children’s inner music-makers by revitalizing music education in public schools. With your donation of $25 or more, you will help give a child an entire year of free music lessons AND receive free admission to the concert, from which all net proceeds will be donated to Little Kids Rock!
Little Kids Rock partners with school districts to train public school teachers to run its innovative Modern Band curriculum and donates all of the accompanying instruments and resources necessary to teach popular music. Little Kids Rock began as a schoolteacher’s vision to give his students access to music education that is relevant to them while diminishing budgets for the arts made that more and more difficult to do. What began as a single after-school guitar class has since exploded into a national movement that is bringing free, weekly music lessons to more than 190,000 public school children due to the efforts of nearly 1,200 teachers nationwide. To date, Little Kids Rock has served over 325,000 students. More info at www.littlekidsrock.org
