How it works
Little Kids Rock provides music instruction for public school students who have been left behind due to budget cuts. They do this through the gracious support of donors, as well as their Honorary Board Members, including Bonnie Raitt, Paul Simon, BB King and a host of others.
Instructors involved in the program use the unique Little Kids Rock methodology to teach students to play musical instruments. The program focuses on popular music styles that most students already listen to, including rock, blues, rap and hip-hop. Heavy emphasis is put on composition, improvisation and recording, and kids regularly get to record their own music, create CDs – even make their own rock videos.
One of the things that makes Little Kids Rock so successful is that after training teachers, the program can be up and running quickly and at no cost to the school. We build on the expertise and skills of music teachers and give schools the flexibility to offer classes within the core curriculum or as after-school enrichment. Because all instruments are donated free of cost, all kids have the chance to learn, play and rock out! Go to their website! www.littlekidsrock.org
