Little Kids Rock, a leading nonprofit provider of free music lessons, musical instruments and teacher training to U.S. public schools, will utilize the funding from Southern California Acura Dealers and EcoMedia to provide training to 20 new teachers and professional development to 40 existing Little Kids Rock teachers. This is in an effort to launch and expand its programming for more students this school year. The donation will also fund the donation of curricula and as many as 610 additional instruments, including guitars, drums, bass guitars and keyboard for use by student music-makers throughout the LAUSD.

“The Southern California Acura Dealers are committed to supporting our communities and programs that enhance the lives of local residents,” said Matt Browning, president of the Southern California Acura Dealers Association. “We appreciate the vital role Little Kids Rock plays in the development of children and expanding their creativity.”

“Learning to play musical instruments instills confidence and inspires creativity in students,” said Paul Polizzotto, founder and president of CBS EcoMedia. “Thanks to the Southern California Acura Dealers’ generous funding, more students in Los Angeles will have access to transformative musical instruments and programs.”
