My Students

My kids are ready to ROCK and need an electric bass and amp!

Our school is a Title I elementary school with over 90% of the students living in poverty.

Despite an upbringing in poverty, we are an exemplary school with children who work very hard and are very creative. We are requesting the electric bass and amp to round out our rock band.

My Project

Over a year ago, our school was given a donation of 30 guitars from the Little Kids Rock organization. During the year, we have also acquired a drum set. Now, we need an electric bass to complete our elementary school rock band. I just know that the sound of the bass with the drums will inspire our little rockers on to some great guitar playing.

The rock band is the new school band!

There is no better way for children to connect to music and the arts than by having them learn songs that they hear on the radio. And, the Little Kids Rock curriculum combines different methods like Suzuki and Orff to get the children playing guitars right away without having to know much about reading music at first.
