From workshops created around common core state standards, to our career-based Backstage Pass program, we’re giving students the opportunity to learn about all subjects through music. Since we opened our doors in 2008, over 230,000 students have participated in GRAMMY Museum education programs.
The GRAMMY Museum is a four-story interactive music museum where your students can experience the power of music with an interactive tour and a complimentary music education workshop. All school tours are enhanced with additional study materials and most tours last between 60-90 minutes. Music is more than just a hobby and passion for your students. It has the ability to change lives. At the GRAMMY Museum students will gain a wealth of knowledge about how music impacts many aspects of society and leave inspired to continue learning.
You can choose from workshops ranging from “Music Production 101” to “Music of the Civil Rights Movement”. All workshops are on a first come first serve basis and require a minimum of 35 students. All workshops are accompanied by a museum tour and the overall experience ranges from 90-120 minutes. To view our current offerings please download the Educational Workshops Calendar.
