DALLAS, TX – Little Kids Rock™ really does rock. A national nonprofit organization that’s been going strong since 2002, it transforms children’s lives by restoring and revitalizing music education in disadvantaged public schools — and in a repeat performance that everyone will appreciate, Stephen Arnold Music is once again releasing The Six Strings of Christmas for the holidays. An instant classic when it debuted in 2012, 100 percent of the proceeds will once again support Little Kids Rock.
The Six Strings of Christmas is an unforgettable spin on classic holiday songs — one that has already raised thousands of dollars for Little Kids Rock. Rooted in the company’s years of experience creating sonic branding and original music, the collection presents a welcome way to enjoy 16 essential holiday season tunes.
Each track is a virtuoso guitar performance – four, six, eight, and 12-string instruments are all represented – arranged and performed by top studio musicians and talent that work with Stephen Arnold Music throughout the year on their many demanding projects.
The result is fresh renditions of “Joy to the World,” “Ave Maria,” “Little Drummer Boy,” “O Come Emmanuel,” “The First Noel,” “Auld Lang Syne,” and ten more that are magical to listen to. Recorded at Stephen Arnold Music’s studios in Dallas, TX, each track captures the nuanced performances of some of the world’s top musical craftsmen.
Available on Amazon, iTunes and CD ($9.99), all of the proceeds from The Six Strings of Christmas go to Little Kids Rock, an organization that partners with school districts to train public school teachers in their innovative curriculum, and donates all of the instruments and resources necessary to run full-fledged music programs.
“It was thrilling to see the strong response to The Six Strings of Christmas last year,” Stephen Arnold, President of Stephen Arnold Music says. “Music lovers the world over helped us to raise thousands of dollars and get it directly to a very deserving organization.”
Stephen Arnold Music’s work has been central to the identity of such clients as Nexstar Broadcasting, Fox Business Channel, CNN, The Weather Channel, and a full 35 percent of all US local TV markets. With The Six Strings of Christmas, the company realized it had an opportunity to make a difference through music.
“In 2013, we aim to build on that success,” Arnold continues. “Little Kids Rock is an all-volunteer organization, and they make the most of every dollar. Underprivileged children across America need music in their lives. Every copy sold of The Six Strings of Christmas brings Little Kids Rock closer to achieving that goal.”
With its highly-efficient use of funds, here’s what Little Kids Rock can accomplish via each sale of The Six Strings of Christmas:
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.
