More Than 10,000 Students Starting to Rock!
The Dr. Phil Foundation launched Little Kids Rock Across America with a $500,000 donation designed to restore, revitalize and enhance music programs in schools in 10 cities across the country. The program brings music education to schoolchildren from grades K through 12 in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, Atlanta, Washington D.C., Tampa, Minneapolis and New Orleans.
The Dr. Phil Foundation is partnering with Little Kids Rock, a nonprofit organization that transforms children’s lives by restoring and revitalizing music education in underfunded public schools. Founded in San Francisco in 2003 by David Wish, an elementary school teacher who had grown frustrated with the lack of music education funding at his school, Little Kids Rock has served more than 85,000 students at over 1,100 schools in 23 cities nationwide.
