Keep Music Rockin’
The Keep Music Rockin’ Foundation is dedicated to enriching the lives of students by raising and promoting awareness of the importance of having quality music education in schools and, further, by providing the financial support needed to ensure that this quality musical education continues and thrives throughout the San Leandro Unified School District. A decade ago, a group of community leaders and educators with music and radio celebrities organized to form the Keep Music Rockin’ Foundation to support the school district and help maintain the seventeen music programs throughout eleven schools. Supplemental funds the Foundation raises assist teachers to repair or purchase musical instruments, obtain needed musical supplies and equipment (sheet music, music stands, etc.) and restore eliminated programs in order to enhance educational opportunities and programs. The program helps students to develop skills such as critical and analytical thinking, creative problem solving, teamwork and effective communication, while providing students with the opportunity to develop a higher level of self-confidence.
