For Teachers and Students
We love having school groups come to visit, and are more than happy to host tours and field trips all through the year!
During our guided tours, students and teachers learn how the blues has served as the backbone to several forms of popular music, including country, rap, hip-hop, and rock. Questions and discussion are strongly encouraged, and teachers can work with the museum ahead of time to craft a visit that is specially tailored to their audience. Please contact the Museum’s Education Coordinator, Kirk Zimmerman to take advantage of this opportunity.
More than 5,000 area students have already experienced programs combining this history of the Blues and the geographical story of the great Blues migration, demonstrating the evolution of the music. Multi-cultural teaching of the Blues in an interdisciplinary fashion connects to America’s social and musical history.
