Hollywood, FL – We Rock for Autism has expanded its reach by helping sponsor the special needs music program at The Rock Box Music School & Stage, in the way of scholarships and supplies. We Rock for Autism has been providing music therapy support since 2014 to children with autism and The Rock Box Music School & Stage, located in North Port, FL has been providing classes to students of all abilities since 2016. Now, with this new found partnership, they both strive to bring the joy and benefits of music to more children on the spectrum.
The sponsorship will start by providing funds to The Rock Box Music School & Stage to help with supplies, mostly books and materials to be used by the instructors during the music-based sessions. Then, scholarship opportunities will be offered to help low income families experience The Rock Box Music School & Stage lessons, to see how their child responds.
“In November of 2018, I received a message from Angel through our Facebook page,” said President of We Rock for Autism, Chris Wilson. “He wanted to learn more about what we were doing and how they could help. We formed a friendship from there and being a fan of some of the projects he has been involved with, just made it that much cooler.”
With both organizations being music based and both with a high-level involvement in the rock and roll community, working together makes perfect sense.
“The Rock Box Music School & Stage is extremely excited to be partnering with We Rock for Autism on this scholarship program. We have done a few fundraisers for them already,” said Angel Bartolotta, creator, co-owner, and drum teacher of The Rock Box Music School & Stage, “and we are looking forward to a bright future together bringing music and happiness to children with Autism.”
