Review for Little Kids Rock, Verona, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a Little Kids Rock trained teacher since 2010. My students and I love Modern Band! Thanks to LKR, we have enough acoustic guitars for the whole class, several electric guitars and amps, and a Pearl drum kit! Together with a few keyboards I already had for my classroom, we are a real rockin' group! I actually teach Modern Band to all of my fourth and fifth graders during their regular music class. We learn to play the Blues, improvise, and play some rock and roll. I love teaching it and they love learning it. You can see my young Blues Band play on our spring concert last school year on my YouTube channel under the playlist "Modern Band". Music lights up the entire brain and makes connections that impact the rest of a child's education. I give them a strong music background in the lower grades. In the upper grades, they get to play THEIR music! Little Kids Rock is a very worthy and impactful organization. I am definitely a better teacher thanks to Little Kids Rock. Diane Woodward

not change anything. It is dynamic and helps children all over the US, and is extending to Haiti and other places where children don't have the opportunity to learn instruments.
