Challenge

Little Kids Rock operates in schools having no music education or in schools in which the music teacher wishes to rejuvenate the music curriculum. We serve public schools where 50% or more of the students qualify for the free or reduced-price lunch program. We awaken the creativity that supports learning and self-discipline in academically, socially and economically at-risk students through music. Students gain a strong sense of accomplishment and self-worth as they develop their musical skills.

Solution

Little Kids Rock restores and revitalizes public school music education. We inspire children to express themselves through music, building the creativity, confidence, and self-esteem that are critical to success in school and beyond. We accomplish this by: pioneering innovative teaching methods, preparing teachers to utilize our methods and materials, providing musical instruments and instruction.
Little Kids Rock is a national nonprofit that is dedicated to building a world where kids can live rich, purposeful lives by ensuring that all public school children have the opportunity to unlock their inner music makers. Teachers in public schools with limited or no music programs receive specialized training and free instruments to give kids lessons on playing and composing in the musical styles they love.

Long-Term Impact

Little Kids Rock will give 3,250 students the gift of music education in their public schools so they will have the opportunity to enrich their lives through music. Children who participate in music instruction develop skill-sets that prepare them for higher education and adulthood.
