Steve Miller Band Benefit Concert for Kids Rock Free Music Program

Kids Rock Free has announced legendary musical icon, the Steve Miller Band, recently raised over $500,000 from individuals, local and national business, performing artists, music industry executives and community leaders in support of music education at a sold-out benefit concert at The Fender Center in Corona, CA. All proceeds from the event went to benefit the non-profit Kids Rock Free music education program, to reduce the 800 kids on the program’s waiting list into classes at The Fender Center.

At a time when many public education facilities are forced to reduce or eliminate music education programs, Kids Rock Free offers an alternate, high-quality, free community resource for music education providing children ages 7 to 17 with six-months of no-cost lessons in piano, guitar, bass, drums, vocal performance and combo band. The Fender Center conducts events throughout the year to bring musical experiences to the general public and raise funds to continue the important work of children’s music education. Recently, The Fender Center and Kids Rock Free partnered to launch a text-to-donate campaign, which has raised $30,000 to date, from donations made by individuals across the country. To get involved, simply text R-O-C-K to 50555 to donate $10 to Kids Rock Free. When prompted, reply “YES” to confirm your gift. $10 will be added to your mobile phone bill/deducted from your prepaid account.

Individuals and organizations interested in learning more on how they can participate and build a community program of their own are encouraged to visit FenderMuseum.com/KidsRockFree
