Education Programs at GRAMMY Museum Mississippi

Since June 2015, thousands of students have participated in GRAMMY Museum Mississippi education programs. From workshops created around common core state standards, to Q&As with various artists, students are offered the opportunity to learn about English, history, science, math and politics through music. 

We would like to invite you to book your students for a visit to the Museum this year.  To download our 2017 Educational Workshops Schedule, click here.

Youth Leadership Council

The Cleveland Rotary Youth Leadership Council at GRAMMY Museum Mississippi plays an integral role in the Museum.  The purpose of the Youth Leadership Council is to provide youth with a voice in all aspects of Museum programs.  Students will help spread the word about GRAMMY Museum Mississippi and be an example of how music engages and empowers students.  Leadership, public speaking and event production are just a few of the skills students will gain through their involvement.  Youth Leadership Council members will become representatives of the Museum and Cleveland Rotary to help encourage participation from fellow students.

Music Revolution Project

Music Revolution Project offers the region’s most creative musicians the opportunity to engage in musical discourse and performance. For each program, 25 students from genres including Classical, Jazz, Pop, Hip-Hop, Folk, Sacred and Rock–n-Roll will be encouraged to apply. Program goals include: prepare youth to pursue post-secondary education and professional careers in the music industry; increase access to music programs in underprivileged communities; increase interaction between student musicians from various disciplines of music; create a program with emphasis on musical experimentation; offer students a chance to see their work from creation to performing to recording; develop a program that teaches both leadership and life skills and promotes critical thinking; broaden the American musical landscape and train future innovators in American music, with the intent to re-claim the country’s role as the creative hotbed of music – popular and otherwise. GRAMMY Museum Mississippi's Music Revolution Project will be held July 17-21, 2017 in Cleveland Mississippi. For more information and to apply, click here. ‚Äč
