Rockin' the Schools

K-12 Level Educational Programs at the Rock Hall

The award-winning Education Department of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is proud to be a part of the educational experience for over twenty thousand students and teachers each year.  Our on-site programs offer you and your students a unique interdisciplinary experience. Rockin’ the Schools engages students in actively exploring the history of rock and roll, while meeting and exceeding Ohio Academic Content Standards for learning in subject areas such as music, language arts, social studies, science, technology and financial literacy through live demonstrations, musical examples, video excerpts, and multimedia presentations.  Where else can you discover the history and culture of 1960s America by watching a historic video performance of Rock Hall Inductees Bob Dylan and Aretha Franklin, or delve into the science of acoustics by participating in a demonstration of computer recording technology?

    “The follow up activities look great! I can’t wait to use the lesson plan on acoustics. I’ve been dying to find a way to sneak in Robert Moog and the development of the synthesizer. We especially liked the demonstration of the recording software”
    - Carey Perkins, St. Charles, 7th Grade
    “We were able to use almost all the material and information following our visit. We had a great discussion using what we experienced and the students were eager to express themselves concerning the visit. Thank you for allowing us to have such a great experience.”
