Created by the Smithsonian Institution, the exhibition of the Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum offers a historical and educational exploration of the origins of rock and soul music, of the musical legends who overcame racial and socio-economic barriers to create America’s music, and of its influence on world culture. Whether visiting the Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum or not, the museum's “Sound Education” program offers lesson plans, as well as a comprehensive 72-page curriculum guide addressing many educational standards and offering effective opportunities for students to learn more about music and the music business. If you'd like to bring your school or group to Rock 'n' Soul for a comprehensive educational experience, please contact Toni Bell at toni@memphisrocknsoul.org for field trip rates and information
