A Blizzard of Thanks for More Kids Making Music

Dear Rockin' Supporters

Little Kids Rock’s strength is in viewing music education in a new way -- LKR is engaging kids who are not motivated by traditional music programs, like 12-year-old Quentin Richardson, who, after three years in Little Kids Rock has remarkable skills  http://littlekidsrock.org/crazy_train.html  that won him a Jackson® Randy RhoadsTM guitar.  Thanks to your help, Little Kids Rock is now reaching nearly 63,000 children nationwide with music education that that uses the music kids know and love to give them a learning experience that resonates (pun intended!)

Music has the power to change children's lives – shy kids become bolder, angry and aggressive kids mellow out.  Playing music together helps children learn about teamwork and can motivate them to overcome the challenges in their lives.  Our challenge, as adults, is that more children than ever before have returned to silent classrooms this year, because budget cuts eliminated their school music programs. 

Please take advantage of the last few days of 2010 to send a message to kids like Quentin – let them know they have advocates who appreciate what they are learning and know that MUSIC MATTERS in a child’s education.  

Visit our project – Give 3,000 students access to music education (#1464) – and please give as generously as you can, so that more kids can receive the lifelong gift of music through LKR's free instruments and innovative lessons that focus on teaching kids to perform, improvise and compose the music they love.  

You have the power to help a child be positive, focused, and creative – attributes that will help them throughout their lives. 

Keep on Rockin'
