Last month, Slash of Velvet Revolver and Guns 'N Roses fame visited Belvedere Middle School in East L.A.. He donated guitars, fielded questions, and led a jam session with the kids, who had been practicing several Slash songs in the weeks leading up to the event without the knowledge of the lead guitarist's impending visit.

NEWS ALERT: Little Kids Rock gives away 900 new instruments to needy schools in a single day!

Hi Friends of Little Kids Rock,

As you know, Little Kids Rock transforms children's lives by restoring and revitalizing music education in our nation's public schools. We are happy to say that we just held our largest single teacher training ever in Dallas Texas last week. We trained a total of 58 teachers and equipped them with 900 brand new instruments and they are going to help us reach over 6,000 students in Dallas this year!

Check out what the Dallas Morning News had to say about us - http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/news/localnews/stories/DN-music_28met.ART.Central.Edition1.26e893a.html

Our goal this year is to purchase and place 8,000 brand new instruments into our schools around the country. We have already placed 6,500 so far. If we reach our goal of 8,000, we will have DOUBLED the number of instruments we gave away just last year.

Please help us to reach our goal of purchasing an additional 1,500 instruments this year. It's back to school time and our kids need your support more than ever!

Thanks for your interest in our kids and our work!
