Care2Rock announces CASA partnership and launch event May 3
May 3 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Care2Rock, an Austin-based online music lesson marketplace and platform dedicated to pairing up skilled music teachers with students for live, online music lessons, announces its official website launch on May 3, 2018. The social enterprise company, Care2rock.com was founded by CEO Karyn Scott and is set to become the perfect intersection of music, technology and social impact with its innovative virtual music lesson platform. Care2Rock is celebrating its official launch during National Foster Care Month with an INVITE-ONLY VIP cocktail event on the evening of Thursday, May 3 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at The Townsend located at 717 Congress Ave. Austin, TX 78701. Media can RSVP by contacting [email protected]. Care2Rock is offering an invite to the launch party along with a month of free music lessons and a brand new instrument of any kind by emailing [email protected] with the code LAUNCH18 in the subject line.
Care2Rock offers a high-quality one-on-one online music lesson experience, with technology that produces superior audio and video and reduces latency. Live video lessons are direct browser-to-browser, with no downloads required, and can be recorded for future use by the student for lesson proficiency. Care2Rock teachers are hand-picked, vetted and background checked, ensuring a safe lesson experience for students of any age. Best of all, Care2rock teachers also agree to mentor a child in foster care – or a child who is hospitalized – for a minimum of one year for free. The site currently offers a variety of lessons, including guitar, piano, strings, percussion, brass, songwriting, and woodwinds. The site can also add specialties in other instruments if someone makes a unique request.
Care2Rock is also teaming up with Texas CASA on the launch of a new program, Computers for CASA. A recent bill championed by Texas CASA allows foster youth to receive computer equipment through the state’s surplus supply. Care2Rock will be offering free lessons on the site to these Texas CASA foster children who have received computers through this program. Care2Rock hopes to eventually partner with CASA nationwide to reach more children in care.
