Our Wish is for No Silent Classrooms

This September, more kids than ever before will be returning to silent classrooms because school budget cuts eliminated their music programs. Little Kids Rock is reversing that trend by teaching kids to play contemporary music, how to improvise and how to compose their own music.

Here is a song written by one of our middle school students. Her song is called "Change." I think it illustrates quite powerfully how music has changed her life:

Little Kids Rock will be going back to school with 54,000 low-income students rockin’ in 24 cities nationwide. You and all our friends at Global Giving can help us reach 75,000 kids by the end of 2010.

Also, two exciting new things will help us spread the word and build momentum –

MTV will feature Little Kids Rock on its show “Made” on August 19th at 5 pm (check your local listings). The Little Kids Rock segment will be in the first half hour :)

"Gene Simmons Family Jewels" on A&E. is featuring Gene’s visit to Little Kids Rock students in East LA. The episode, entitled "For The Love of Rock," premieres on August 24th at 9 pm (check your local listings).

Please tune in to see Little Kids Rock on television and help put music back where it belongs -- in our schools!

Thanks, and Keep on Rockin’,

Little Kids Rock
