Museum Tour + Clive Davis Theater Workshop

Building upon exhibit themes, workshops at the GRAMMY Museum cultivate critical thinking while engaging students. These interdisciplinary workshops evoke further exploration and extend learning outcomes for students before and after they explore our exhibits. Focusing on a different theme each month, these interactive workshops infuse music with CA State Content Standards and serve as a springboard for further investigation. These workshops need to be booked in advance.
