Music Will (formerly Little Kids Rock) runs the largest nonprofit music program in the US public school system. Our teachers currently serve over 500,000 students in more than 600 cities and towns across the country.
We believe that music education is a right, not a privilege, and it should reflect the cultures of the students it serves.
That’s why, for two decades now, our programs have taught students such popular American genres as rock, pop, R&B, Latin, rap and country—alongside styles already taught in schools, such as classical and jazz.
At first, some thought our approach “too revolutionary.” But many others saw its wisdom. Today, a national network of K-12 districts has adopted the Music Will program as their own.
More than 70 colleges and universities now teach our approach to their music education majors. Several state departments of education have partnered with Music Will to grow music education in the schools they serve.
Our mission of transforming lives by transforming music education has grown into a movement.
