Music Revolution Project®

The GRAMMY Museum’s Music Revolution Project offers some of most creative young musicians the opportunity to engage in musical discourse and performance with other talented youth. The program engages students in music history, theory, and composition classes, provides them with one-on-one mentoring sessions with GRAMMY nominees and/or winners, and helps them form ensembles with their fellow classmates.

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 composing and 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
