The positive effects of music in a child's life begin with lullabies at home and continue with the presence of music programs in schools. The Little Kids Rock Benefit, featuring Shelby Lynne, supports the Little Kids Rock mission on May 6 at George's in San Rafael.

"I jumped at the chance to help out a much-worthy cause," says Lynne. "When I was a kid, I played daddy's guitar, so I was fortunate to have an instrument lying around I could play on a whim. Musical instruments are interesting for kids. They naturally gravitate toward them out of curiosity, whether they are musically inclined or not."

Little Kids Rock partners with disadvantaged public school districts to fund teacher training, instrument donations and free lessons for kids. "Music lessons are a gift, and having the ability to read music is a wonderful asset in life, no matter what your occupation is," says Lynne.

"I knew when I was just a kid, five or six, that music would be my life," says Lynne. "I carry my childhood influences with me everywhere I play."

The Little Kids Rock Benefit is on Sunday, May 6, at George's Nightclub. 842 Fourth St., San Rafael. 6pm. $45–$65. 877.568.2726.
