National nonprofit Little Kids Rock donated more than $330,0000--worth of instruments, training and resources to the Dallas Independent School District (DISD) this year in an effort to expand its free, Modern Band music programming in schools throughout the district. Up to 30 DISD teachers went back to school to receive music education training, curricula and instruments in the first of two free workshops that will transform their schools' music programs and their students' lives. The expansion will bring hands-on music learning in popular music styles to more than 6,000 schoolchildren, and support existing Little Kids Rock programs in Dallas, which currently reach nearly 6,500 children in 59 schools. This increase in Little Kids Rock's service to Dallas schoolchildren and their teachers is made possible by a generous grant from the Fossil Foundation.

Little Kids Rock is a nonprofit organization that transforms children's lives by restoring and revitalizing music education in public schools nationwide.

Little Kids Rock was founded in San Francisco in 2002 by David Wish, an elementary school teacher who had grown frustrated with the lack of music education funding at his school. Today, Little Kids Rock is one of the leading nonprofit providers of free lessons and instruments to underprivileged children in US public schools, and has served more than 250,000 students at over 1,700 schools in 25 cities nationwide.

Little Kids Rock Honorary Board Members include Bonnie Raitt, Steven Van Zandt, Paul Simon, B.B. King, Slash, Ziggy Marley and other famous friends in the music industry.
