Review for Little Kids Rock, Verona, NJ, USA
I attended a Little Kids Rock teacher training in 2010 — all day on Saturday and Sunday. I came away with a great deal of valuable curriculum and teaching ideas. Two weeks later, my school received 30 three-quarter-size nylon string acoustic guitars, each with its own case. Every year since then, my students have been able to take these guitars home over night to practice chords and songs. They perform, they coach each other, some of them are strengthening relationships with a parent or older sibling or aunt who plays guitar and works with them at home. These are 9 and 10 year old children in a city school. Little Kids Rock is a powerful motivating force for kids in my school. The support the organization has provided in succeeding years has been terrific. I feel so lucky to be a Little Kids Rock teacher.
