THE GRAMMY MUSEUM®: Devoted to exploring and celebrating music


Showcased in Kansas City and Tampa Bay, the GRAMMY Museum’s Music Revolution Project offers creative and gifted musicians the opportunity to engage in musical discourse and performance. Each year, 60 high-school students from genres including Classical, Jazz, Pop, Hip-Hop, Folk, Sacred and Rock–n-Roll learn to about songwriting, production, performance and the business of music from GRAMMY Museum staff as well as GRAMMY Award nominees and winners, who are special guests at each program.

Program Goals

  • 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
