Mississippi has a strong heritage as being “The Birthplace of American Music”. The ROCK U 2 Foundation Inc. continues that legacy by enriching the lives of children through music. The ROCK U 2 Foundation, Inc. encourages art and education by providing music scholarships for lessons, interactive music programs, instruments and musical resources to enable children to learn how to play and perform music, to work as a team and to be a productive part of our community. We are looking to develop a relationship with organizations and individuals to help us with educational and cultural opportunities for lower income Mississippians. This community outreach allows children without the necessary funds to have the opportunity to enrich their lives and the lives of others through music. Providing the opportunity for music to be available to children can help them with benefits ranging from working in teams, communication, self-esteem, creative thinking, calmer attitudes, imagination, discipline, study skills and invention by focusing on the fact that young children are mostly highly receptive to pitch and rhythm. The overall outcome is to enhance, enrich and broaden the lives of the children in South Mississippi by allowing them the opportunity to fall in love with music that they create.
