Metallica’s James Hetfield jams with Little Kids Rock, raises funds for music education
Thank you. (Photo : Jon Luini) If you remember reading about the Rockin’ the Bay benefit for Little Kids Rock , we have some good news: Metallica’s James Hetfield helped raise over $225,000. Hetfield’s autographed ESP Snakebite guitar alone went for $14,000 to one auction winner. He received the “Livin’ the Dream Award,” made in memory of Facebook executive chef Josef Desimone, also a musician and philanthropist. Other honorees included Facebook chefs.

With five older brothers introducing me to all kinds of music, I was hooked from the time I could walk. The Test The public school I attended as a boy would loan instruments to students who were committed to studying, but first you had to pass the test. In the first grade I decided to take up the flute, so my mother made me an appointment with the music administrator — a stern old man in a stuffy little room in the school basement. I don’t remember exactly what the tests were — something about clapping a pattern with one hand while tapping your foot to another, and maybe singing along to the melody he played on the piano. What I do clearly remember, however, is that I failed that test. He told my mother that I lacked musical aptitude and that I would not be eligible for the instrument program or for lessons.

Why Music, Part 5: Music and Education
The former “Alias” star and mother of three says “education is without a doubt the ticket out of poverty.”Garner spoke Wednesday on Capitol Hill in support of a bill with the goal of expanding and improving early education programs for American children from birth to age 5. It seeks to accelerate the growth of state-funded pre-kindergarten programs for 4-year-olds and improve the quality of infant and toddler care programs in center- and home-based settings. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli) WASHINGTON (AP) Actress Jennifer Garner says education is “without a doubt the ticket out of poverty.” The mother of three spoke Wednesday on Capitol Hill in support of legislation that aims to expand and improve early education programs. Garner, who starred in the ABC series “Alias,” said she supports early education to help level the playing field for all children. “My kids have everything they need,” Garner said, “so what I give my heart to besides parenting my own kids is early childhood education for kids all across America, especially for those growing up with less.” The Strong Start for America’s Children Act is similar to what President Barack Obama has proposed, with the goal of expanding and improving early education programs for kids up to age 5.
