What We Do

Little Kids Rock transforms lives by restoring, expanding, and innovating music education in our schools. That is Little Kids Rock’s mission, and since 2002, we have given more than 500,000 under-served schoolchildren across the U.S. access to fun, engaging, Modern Band music classes and brand new instruments at no cost to the students, teachers, or school districts.

Little Kids Rock trains public school teachers and donates all of the instruments, curricular resources and support they need to ensure that their kids receive the right to rock! What makes Little Kids Rock different is that they do more than just donate instruments like guitars, drums and keyboards; they build lasting music programs that focus on teaching kids to perform, improvise and compose the popular music genres that they already know and love, like rock, pop, blues, hip-hop, country, reggae and R&B.

See how it works!


  • Restoring weekly music education classes to K-12 students in public schools that have been stripped of their music programs.
  • Expanding music programs delivered to students by training teachers to offer classes utilizing our Modern Band methods and materials.
  • Innovating  teaching methods that are rooted in children’s knowledge of popular music forms such as rock, pop, blues, hip-hop, country, reggae and R&B.
