Programs: Little Kids Rock recruits, trains and equips public school teachers to start music programs at their schools. Our unique approach focuses on popular music styles such as rock, funk, salsa, reggae, rap, pop, hip-hop and the like. Our curriculum reflects the diverse cultural backgrounds of our students, and students actually learn to compose, perform and record their own music.

Mission:
Despite the evidence of the benefits of music education, public school music education is in crisis. LKR restores and revitalizes public school music education, by giving professional development to teachers and free musical instruments to schools. Music is a critical component of a first-rate education, and through music, we inspire children to build the creativity, confidence, and teamwork skills that are critical to success in school and career. We accomplish this by engaging children in learning the contemporary music they enjoy, maximizing the relevance and vitality of music learning in their lives.
