2021 Scholarship Campaign

Dear Rockit families and friends,

We hope everyone is safe and healthy during these uncertain times.

To say the least, 2020 has been a very trying year for all of us. Adapting to new ways of life and communicating in a different fashion has presented new challenges. Live music is now more important than ever, and the Rockit Academy is working to provide a safe place for social connection and musical development. We have been doing our best to keep young musicians engaged through virtual lessons and master classes. We were able to do this with the love and support from Brookdale Community College and our Rockit families and friends.

We are proud to announce our upcoming Rockit Academy concert streaming live from the Brookdale Community College campus on November 21st at 1pm on the Brookdale Television Facebook page. Rockit musicians will be performing your favorite songs from the ’70s and the Led Zeppelin IV album in its entirety. This live performance will kick off our 2021 Scholarship Campaign so we may continue to reach all aspiring young artists at every level of economic status, with a focus on those less privileged. At the Rockit Academy, we believe that music is the international language that bridges all cultures.

Your support is a key element to our success and functioning as a music school. The Rockit Academy has set a campaign goal of $20,000. These donations will contribute to our 2021 scholarship fund, which will support up to 10 young musicians. Help us keep our mission on path by giving young musicians the opportunity to share their talents with the world. If you are able, please consider making a tax deductible donation via the Rockit Academy website:

If you are unable to make a donation at this time, there are many other ways you can support us! You can advocate for us by sharing our mission of live music education with a family member or friend. Additionally, you can follow and mention us on social media. And most importantly, show your support of our musicians who have worked so hard by tuning into our livestream on the Brookdale Television Facebook page. This would mean the world to us.

Since the inception of the Rockit Live Foundation, we have provided thousands of music lessons and band classes. Our students are given live performance opportunities, which instill confidence and team skills, and prepare them for prestigious music colleges throughout the United States. By joining our campaign we can keep music in the lives of young musicians.

During these trying times, music has the ability to heal and bring people together. It creates a sense of belonging and participation, especially for today’s youth during these times of isolation. Let us come together as a community to keep the power of music alive. The Rockit Live Foundation is eternally grateful for your support and we look forward to the opportunity to enjoy live music together in the future.

Thank you for your support,
Bruce Gallipani
Executive Director
