How sweet the sound: Music school keeps kids rockin’

A New Jersey couple won assistance from Wells Fargo to advance its Little Rockers small business — a band and school focused on music education.

“Honestly, the sky’s the limit with us, ’cause we just continue to think of things that we want to do and then we do it.”

That’s how Jessie Apple sees Little Rockers, the music school (and band) for children she started with her husband, Chris. They do everything for their small business: teach music classes, design the curriculum, write and record original music, compose videos, maintain a website, and perform as a band.

Chris and Jessie are the Little Rockers, offering music classes and concerts to New Jersey-area kids and their parents.

Their goal is to entertain kids – as young as three months old – while educating them about music.

After five years in business, the Apples decided they wanted to reach even more children. So they entered the Wells Fargo Works Project contest, which awards prize money to small businesses, and won $1,000!
