Seasons Greetings, Everyone!

The holidays are here, and this year has a special meaning. I’d like to invite you to help us raise awareness for a great little cause with a very big heart.

It’s Little Kids Rock, a fantastic nonprofit dedicated to revitalizing music education in America. With your help, Little Kids Rock provides free instruments and music lessons to underserved public school kids, coast-to-coast.

Last year we produced a special CD called The Six Strings of Christmas, an album of holiday arrangements performed by our family of studio musicians — those great players we work with every day. They donated their services, and we all donated our time to make it happen, resulting in a collection of 16 great acoustic yuletide classics all played on a six-string… well, with a few 4, 8, and 12 strings thrown in just for fun.

Thanks to the generosity of clients and friends like you, we were able to give $3,000 to Little Kids Rock.

We’re at it again this year, and here’s the best part: just like last year…100% of each $9.99 CD purchase goes directly to Little Kids Rock.

“The Six Strings of Christmas” – An album benefiting Little Kids Rock

Christmas CD - Little Kids Rock

We have just finished production of our new acoustic holiday album “The Six Strings of Christmas” to benefit Little Kids Rock.

It is an opportunity to highlight the amazing talents of our extended family; the studio musicians we are so privileged to work with on our many demanding projects. Each Yuletide classic was arranged and performed by this group of incredible six-string guitar players—with a few four, eight and 12-string instruments thrown into the mix just for fun. Speaking of which, here’s a snippet of “Auld Lang Syne” featuring Dave Powell on his 12-string harp guitar:

With the purchase of The Six Strings of Christmas by Stephen Arnold Music, you will be helping Little Kids Rock provide free instruments and music lessons to disadvantaged public school students in some of the most economically challenged communities in the United States!

100% of each $9.99 CD purchase goes directly to Little Kids Rock, which means:
1 CD = One “rock band” lesson for an entire classroom of students!
2 CDs = An entire year of music lessons for one student!
5 CDs = One brand new acoustic guitar into a classroom
10 CDs = One brand new electric keyboard and amp into a classroom

So light the fire, decorate the tree, pour a frothy cup of eggnog and enjoy the magical, musical sounds of “The Six Strings of Christmas”.

Season’s Greetings everyone!
