March is national Music In Our Schools Month® (MIOSM). Music Empowers. Music Heals. Music Connects. Music Changes Lives. And this year’s MIOSM theme: MUSIC INSPIRES!

This March, @LittleKidsRock is asking YOU to share your most inspirational music moments on social media to help raise awareness for the work we are doing to expand music programming in underserved public schools by donating free instruments, teacher training, and curricula rooted in the popular music styles that kids know and love!

At Little Kids Rock, we have lots of inspirational musical moments. In fact, we have more than half a million inspirational moments! That’s because since 2002, we reached over 500,000 kids with the lifelong gift of music education, and each of the “ah-ha” moments that they have had when they unlocked their inner music makers is inspirational to us!

Share your #MIOSM #MusicInspires moment, tag @littlekidsrock, and ask your friends, fans, followers, students or employees to join in! Get creative by adding links to a video or photo.

    I learned to play drums at age 6. and still play 58 years later

    Started singing in school when I was about 8 because a teacher thought we ought to have a choral club. Sang all the way through high school, and joined my church’s adult choir when I was 13. I still sing, 50 years later, in a church choir, and in a madrigal performance group. Music has borne me up and given me hope when I have been in the darkest of places, and brings joy to my heart. I cannot imagine living without good music in my life – and it all started in school.

    In 6th grade, my music teacher asked me to sing a solo in a concert, and so I sang “Bless This House.” I had no idea I could sing any better than anyone else, but she said that was why she chose me. In 7th grade, because of my 6th grade solo, I joined one of the choirs, which was amazing! I sang through high school and college years, and I was in many adult choirs. Eventually I went back to school and got another Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education, which gave me the great opportunity to teach music. I also directed not only church choirs but also co-directed an adult community chorus, and did adult community musical theater. What fun, and how different my life would have been without singing! I am now 68, and still sing (of course!).

    One of my favorite moments from elementary school was rocking out to the Zeppelin record I brought to school. The whole school listed in the cafeteria during a rainy day recess. So awesome that the school allowed that! Later, learning clarinet and recorder set a foundation of trying something new and different with the support of teachers. I really got into music in middle and high school when I learned to play guitar. Although I was on a destructive path in that time, my love of music was what helped me survive and look forward to life. Now my favorite memories are of teaching my own children how to play instruments and making music together. It’s time to give back!
