Little Kids Rock launched a new chapter in Philadelphia in April! Twenty public school teachers were trained to provide music instruction "the Little Kids Rock way" at a workshop held during the weekend of April 28th. These newly trained Music Mentors will provide music instruction for up to 600 students. What a great group of teachers! The energy remained high for the duration of the workshop. Our success was confirmed by the number of teachers who lingered at the conclusion of the workshop to continue discussions and practice concepts learned. One teacher left the classroom with this comment, "What an amazing program. The trainers made everyone feel so comfortable. It was a wonderful learning experience!"
Now, Philadelphia is awaiting its first set of Little Kids Rock classes. These teachers are enthusiastically preparing their class schedules and eagerly anticipating their instrument orders. 100 guitars have been secured for this project to date. Classes will commence in September.
