The Music of War

Grades: 6-12
The GRAMMY Museum brings history standards to life with "The Music of War." Take a step back to the Civil War, World Wars I and II, Vietnam and the war in Iraq to learn how music has been a force of change both on and off the battlefield. Students will be asked to listen and analyze songs from different eras and compare and contrast the struggles of conflict in both past and present. The program is directly related to the "Songs of Conscience, Sounds of Freedom" exhibit on the Museum's fourth floor.
