Welcome to Kids Rock The Nation
Kids Rock the Nation, Inc., led by Anthony Wild of Palm Coast, promotes self esteem through musical performance by recognizing and rewarding potential musical talent in children ages nine to sixteen years old. Through an application process, recipients are chosen who demonstrate desire to learn and the motivation to succeed. Chosen applicants receive a guitar, on-going mentoring from professional musicians and opportunities to perform.
Kids Rock the Nation, Inc. is an organization with the goal to build self esteem in the children by gifting them with a guitar, lessons that will expose them to the focus and disciplines required to play and the camaraderie and joy found in our music community.
About Anthony Wild
Originally from Wisconsin, Anthony began singing at 4 years of age. During his teen years he continued to sing and began recording after his family moved to Florida.
Keeping busy with his careers in the rock concert production business and hair styling kept him from pursuing his love of blues singing. Several years after moving to Daytona Beach in 1994, he began to perform in area clubs and pursue blues singing once again.
Later on in life, after experiencing the love and support of good and faithful friends, while suffering through and eventually being healed of cancer, Anthony decided that he wanted to give back to the community. That is when Kids Rock the Nation was founded. By mentoring young kids through gifting them with guitars and encouraging their musical growth he gains a profound sense of satisfaction.
We are proud to be supported by The Gibson Foundation who has graciously donated beautiful Gibson guitars to our foundation
