Students hold concert after receiving donated instruments
News

Tampa, Florida -- Too often we hear about schools cutting music programs, but some local students are actually being encouraged to share their love and passion for music.

On Thursday, kids at Dale Mabry Elementary hosted a rock and roll concert. The national organization "Little Kids Rock" is making a difference, giving students 30 free acoustic guitars last year.

The children were so excited, they wanted to learn more. So their teacher went to the PTA to ask for help, and with its support, they have added more instruments, including steel pan drums, a bass guitar, keyboard and speaker system.

All school year, the students have regularly played guitar and written their own songs. They have also learned to play Caribbean-style music on their steel pan drums, and there is now even a chorus that sings along.
