HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. -- They are little voices, but they are belting out some big songs.

The fourth graders at Huntersville Elementary School are learning to rock out, rehearsing for their upcoming concert.

"It feels pretty good. You get to picture yourself being like a rock star," said Jackson Kmieciak.

Music teacher Mike Salvatore says inspiration struck when he saw a perfect teaching opportunity.

"When a fifth grader asked me--I have a picture of John Lennon and Yoko over there--they asked me who's that and nobody in the class knew. I was like, this is wrong. I need to do something about this," Salvatore said.

He wrote all of the arrangements himself.

"I was questioning-did my dad know this or something?" asked Peter Alperi.

"Led Zeppelin could arguably be called the biggest rock band of the 70's," Salvatore said. "I was a little anxious to see how they were going to receive the music. It’s obviously much different than today’s music."

"My dad thought it was pretty awesome because he grew up listening to (them) so he thought it would be pretty cool for me to have the experience," Kmieciak said.

Fourth grader Acadia Dubiel said, "I didn't really know them much but now I love their songs."
