Together, we grow.
Care2Rock is a company that is absolutely committed and passionate about helping transform lives through music. This philosophy is rooted in everything we do, especially the teachers we select through a triple vetting process to teach on our platform.* Our teachers want to help every student who chooses to take lessons online with us reach their greatest potential. But our teachers also sign up to volunteer and mentor youth in foster care in order to help change students lives who otherwise have no access to music. By choosing Care2Rock for your music lessons, you’re learning, our teachers are earning, and youth in foster care are benefitting.
C2R pairs our extraordinary teachers who are passionate about making a difference with cutting edge live Web RTC technology, which produces stellar real-time, high-quality online video. Unlike many other conferencing services, C2R is direct browser to browser, so there is never any software to download! And parents have the option to record every lesson so students can learn and review past lessons to help them progress. With these strong foundation pieces in place, Care2Rock today is successfully fulfilling its dual mission: providing exceptional music instruction to people in the comfort of their homes, while harnessing the power of music to change young, vulnerable lives for the better.
* Care2Rock’s Trusted Teacher process means every teacher is interviewed, background checked and reference checked before beginning on our platform.
Karyn Scott, Founder
Care2Rock was created by Karyn Scott, founder of Kids in a New Groove [KING], an Austin-based nonprofit that has enriched the lives of hundreds of Central Texas children in the foster care system through music since 2009. Seeing how KING not only gave consistency and joy to hundreds of kids in foster care, but also helped them graduate high school, and enter into adulthood with a set of learned skills and a sense of self-worth, Karyn sought to expand the program’s impact across America – and Care2Rock was born as an L3C social enterprise. Through Care2rock, paying customers can take state of the art online music lessons, while teachers volunteer across the country for youth who have no access to music.

“I’ve been involved in the program since its inception, and have been delighted to watch it grow as it continues to find new ways to reach out to kids in need of a mentor and a positive outlet to express themselves.”
