Our educational programs and exhibits reach hundreds of thousands of students of all ages and teach them how music has played a role in some of the most important social, cultural and political issues in modern history. The Museum also offers teachers many opportunities to learn how to energize their classrooms with popular music. Workshops, institutes, and forums demonstrate ways to integrate popular music across the disciplines so that students meet and exceed educational standards.
Through its educational programs, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum explores how music has intersected with our culture, changed our political landscape and given a voice to those on the margins of mainstream society. This effort to bring pop culture into the academic world is crucial, as critical dialogues in our world are increasingly happening through – and with – modern music.
