As the leader in culturally-responsive, inclusive music education, Little Kids Rock partners with public school districts around the country to build music programs as diverse as the kids being served. Little Kids Rock trains teachers to run its innovative Modern Band curriculum, and donates accompanying curricula and instruments as necessary to teach popular music in a way that empowers students to experience instant achievement.

What began as a single-school guitar class has since exploded into a national movement that brings free, weekly music lessons to more than 320,000 public school children each year through the efforts of more than 2,000 teachers in 200 school districts nationwide.
