Rockin' the Schools

K-12 Classes

Rockin’ the Schools programs are free, on-site, interdisciplinary classes on the history of rock & roll that meet and exceed academic content standards. Classes draw on the power of rock & roll to get students excited about academic content areas from fine arts, language arts, and social studies to mathematics, science, and technology.
