KRF Profiles – Diana

photo 2Hi everyone, I’m Diana Conenna, Education Coordinator at KRF. I’ve been involved with Kids Rock Free® for seven years, since 2007.

I wanted to come onto our new blog and talk a bit about KRF and my personal experience here so that people can really see into our organization and everything new that’s going on right now.

My favorite thing about working here is to see the growth in the kids, to see how much they learn. They start off fragile beginners, and grow into their strength like trees. It’s amazing seeing their physical growth, watching little babies come in, in our Piano classes we allow students as young as five years old, and we get to see them follow through the program until the age of 17. That’s a physical transformation, but we also get to see them really spread their wings musically. Some kids don’t know their right from their left when they get here, and when they graduate they have the confidence of a true rockstar on stage.

I also love that we’re a nonprofit. Everything we do goes to something important. I feel good about myself in my position, because I know that the people I’m really working for are our kids. I feel personally blessed here, it’s given me even more than I’ve given to it.


This is KRF’s first profile series; stay tuned for part two.
