This research guide serves as a resource for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum's Education Department course, Rock and Roll Band! Meet the Instruments. For additional information on the course and for more teacher resources, see http://www.rockhall.com/education/inside-the-classroom/rockin/MTI/
In this exciting, interactive class, elementary school students examine the instrumentation of a rock band, discovering the low notes of the bass guitar, the pounding rhythms of the drums and percussion, the melodies and harmonies of guitars, keyboards, and more. Students have fun learning about the characteristics of the instruments and their sounds - and even perform along with the band! By investigating how musicians arrange the various instruments of a band, students discover how the different parts of classic rock and roll songs are created. This class includes historic video performances by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees, as well as live performances and demonstrations by the Rock Hall education ensemble. At the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum kids really do get a chance to ROCK!
