The GRAMMY Museum To Launch Music Education Initiative In Kansas City
Music Revolution Project Aims To Create Next Generation Of Musicians and Songwriters
The GRAMMY Museum’s Music Revolution Project, a new education initiative developed by The GRAMMY Museum has been announced by Bob Santelli, Executive Director of The GRAMMY Museum. The announcement was made as part of the Los Angeles-based museum’s GRAMMY week activities. Scheduled to debut as a pilot program in Kansas City, Mo. in June 2012, The GRAMMY Museum’s Music Revolution Project will offer talented youth the opportunity to engage in musical discourse and performance with other peers from across the country, spurring innovative ideas within the realm of American music.
Created with generous support from AEG, the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts and The Recording Academy®, The GRAMMY Museum’s Music Revolution Project will stimulate creative young musicians by connecting them with GRAMMY-level artists. During The GRAMMY Museum’s summer pilot program, 25 emerging young artists will participate in an intensive, four-week curriculum including instruction, rehearsals and mentoring at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts and Sprint Center, two iconic venues located in downtown Kansas City, Mo.
“The enthusiasm, passion and commitment of the music and arts community throughout the region made Kansas City the obvious choice to host this program,” said GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli. “With the commitment of first-class partners, The GRAMMY Museum’s Music Revolution Project will be ideally positioned to develop the next generation of innovative music talent.”
Local high school and college students interested in Jazz, Pop, Hip-Hop, Rock, Folk and Roots, Sacred and Classical music, are encouraged to apply. Created to broaden musical and creative skill while helping establish relationships, the program is also designed to increase self-esteem, help students develop entrepreneurial skills and grow their passion for music.
On February 18th, students ages 15-23 were invited to attend an information session at the Kauffman Center for the performing arts. For those who did not attend the information session, but would like to apply please submit the application form by April 15th. Download Application Forms Here For questions, please email .
