TV Music Maker Helps Give Kids Gift of Music

If you’ve worked creative services at any local station, chances are you’ve used some cuts from Stephen Arnold Music.

Arnold, along with some other musicians in Dallas made an album called “The Six Strings of Christmas” to help put instruments in the hands of kids who can’t afford them.

“There are many statistics that show that the kids that are involved in music have 52% better chance of going to college,” Stephen Arnold, of Stephen Arnold Music, said.

For every album sold, 100 percent of the proceeds go to “Little Kids Rock” It’s an organization “dedicated to ensuring that every student has the opportunity to unlock his or her inner music-maker.”

From the website:

Little Kids Rock trains public school teachers and donates all of the instruments, curricular resources and support they need to ensure that their kids receive the right to rock! What makes Little Kids Rock different is that they do more than just donate instruments like guitars, drums and keyboards; they build lasting music programs that focus on teaching kids to perform, improvise and compose the popular music genres that they already know and love, like rock, pop, blues, hip-hop, country, reggae and R&B.
