Little Kids Rock has invented an entirely new kind of school music program which they call Modern Band. It teaches kids to perform, improvise and compose using the popular styles that they know and love including rock, pop, reggae, hip hop, R & B and other modern styles. Modern Band classes feature guitar, bass, keyboard, drums, vocals, technology, and computers.
Modern Band programs leverage the cultural capital of the children they serve. They also expand upon existing music programming such as Marching Band, Jazz Band and Chorus, making music available to children who might otherwise not participate in traditional music classes.
