Little Kids Rock will utilize 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. 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.
