Christmas CD benefitting Little Kids Rock!! The 6 Strings of Christmas

Season’s Greetings Everyone,

We’re back again this Holiday Season hoping to make our industry aware of this great organization, Little Kids Rock™.

Little Kids Rock™ provides free music lessons and instruments to underserved public school kids around the country.

Last year we were able to put 60 brand new acoustic guitars into the hands of children by raising over $3000 selling our Christmas CD, The Six Strings Of Christmas, which features many of our great Texas studio friends playing their own 6-string yuletide arrangements (100% of the proceeds go to Little Kids Rock).

Each CD costs just $9.99, and 100% of the proceeds are donated to Little Kids Rock, which means:

  • 1 CD = Provides a child with three months of music lessons!
  • 5 CDs = Puts a brand new acoustic guitar into a child’s hands!
  • 10 CDs = Supplies a keyboard and amp to a public school music class!

So 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!

Listen Now >>


 

Thanks for giving our children the right to rock!

–Stephen

“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:
