Little Kids Rock
LIttle Kids Rock Logo

In March of 2011, I was fortunate enough to take the Little Kids Rock training program. Through this program, the school received 30 new guitars for the music classroom, thanks to Fender Guitars! During this two day training, we were taught how to accessibly teach students guitar, piano and drums.  

As a 6th-8th grade elective, students will have the opportunity to be part of a rock band! All students will learn how to play simple chord progressions on the guitar and piano, as well as learn basic rhythms on the guitar and percussion in addition to gaining the tools necessary to work in a small, self-driven group. We will culminate their rock band experience with multiple authentic performances throughout the year. Stay tuned for updates on our road to fame!

 

Community Partnerships

Since the 2012-2013 school year our Folwell rock band has really taken off! We have been fortunate enough to to play at The Cedar Cultural Center, Minneapolis Convention Center, International Market Square, school carnivals, arts celebrations, and started a traditional winter performance at the 7th Street Entry which is entering it's 6th year! This year we will add Hook and Ladder to the list of venues and partnerships.
