Little Kids Rock
The Foundation's grants programme will once again reach beyond the borders of the UK, with the award of a grant to US-based Little Kids Rock over two years. Supporting the provision of free musical instruments, weekly lessons, and performance opportunities to 100,000 disadvantaged school children in public schools across Chicago, it will provide over 10,000 instruments and training for 300 teachers. Graduates of the programme include 6th grader Vincent Molden who has since been selected to perform the leading role in the US touring production of School of Rock.
