Eliminating barriers to music education for children across Ohio
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is committed to engaging, teaching and inspiring through the power of rock and roll. One of the ways they aim to accomplish this mission is by offering educational programs to students across Ohio and virtually to people all over the world.
In 2019, we donated $2.5 million to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame to support its educational programs, which they used to establish the Haslam Scholars Program. This program provides free admission and expert classroom instruction to Cleveland Metropolitan School District students and Title 1 school students statewide.
Through the Haslam Scholars Program, more students are able to participate in the Rock Hall’s Rockin’ the Schools programs, which are on-site, interdisciplinary classes on the history of rock and roll, woven in to lessons about fine arts, language arts, social studies, mathematics, science and technology.
The Haslam Scholars Program eliminates barriers to arts education and programming, providing students across the state with equal access to the Rock Hall’s wonderful educational programming and helping to foster an appreciation and understanding of music.
