I am excited about the digital launch of Care2rock and all the children we can now reach with music across the country.
AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) January 03, 2018
On January 9th, 2018, the social enterprise Care2Rock officially launches from Google Fiber’s headquarters in Austin, Texas. Care2Rock.com is a live online music learning platform that connects customers with highly qualified musicians and music teachers in any lesson category (guitar, piano, singing, violin, etc). With Care2Rock’s new tech-forward video conference platform, you can schedule and take a live lesson online from the comfort of your home with one simple click of a button. However, the great thing about Care2Rock is that it’s also a social enterprise; the site’s teachers agree to mentor children in foster care and hospitals across the country for free.
“I am excited about the digital launch of Care2Rock and all the children we can now reach with music across the country,” CEO, Karyn Scott said. “From my past work as a juvenile prosecutor, I saw a huge lack of resources for children in foster care. While only 50% of these children will graduate high-school, the local music mentorship program I started in Austin aimed at kids in foster care saw 100% of participants graduate. Care2Rock can expand these efforts by recruiting teachers from across the country to teach any customer in the comfort of their living room, while allowing them the opportunity to volunteer for kids everywhere.”
Care2Rock aims to mentor over 10,000 children in foster care and hospitals by 2019 through its social enterprise model. Potential students of any age eager to learn music can help achieve this goal while taking from the best teachers across the country. Prominent musicians who want to give back have flocked to the new site, including those who have toured with bands such as KISS, Bruce Springsteen and Jamestown Revival, as well as a member of the artist duo Mattson 2, who is bringing a completely new Southern California sound to jazz.
Care2Rock’s website incorporates WebRTC technology which allows for easy face-to-face live conferencing and requires no software downloads. All teachers are triple vetted with background checks, reference checks and interviewed by Care2Rock staff. A 30-minute lesson costs $32. To take lessons or apply to teach, visit care2rock.com.
