Save the date: Students Rock IV Benefit-Sunday Nov. 13 at 7:00 at Freight and Salvage Coffeehouse, Berkeley

Students Rock Foundation is a charitable corporation based in the Northern California SF Bay Area. We provide scholarships based on financial need for students wishing to participate in performing arts enrichment programs not officially associated with a school district. Students Rock Foundation enables students to explore, learn, and achieve, in a variety of programs such as music, choral, theatre or dance and more.

Students Rock Foundation was founded by a group of parents whose families' lives were enriched by their participation in music, dance, theatre and other performing arts classes in the SF Bay Area. Since participation in these activities can be expensive and out of the reach of many families, we realized how important it would be to provide opportunities for those without the monetary means to enroll in performing arts enrichment classes. By bringing social and economic diversity to these programs, all participating students and families are enriched.
