TeachRock empowers teachers and engages students by using popular music to create interdisciplinary, culturally responsive education materials for all 21st century classrooms.
Launched by Little Steven Van Zandt and the Founders Board of Bono, Jackson Browne, Martin Scorsese, and Bruce Springsteen, TeachRock.org provides free, standards-aligned resources that use music to help K-12 students succeed in disciplines like science, math, social studies, language arts, and more.
TeachRock's Partner District and Schools Program operates in over 100 sites in five states. TeachRock Partners receive cyclic professional development and technical assistance in curricular implementation. Through a partnership with the Connecticut Department of Education, TeachRock helps 15 CT school districts embrace arts integration each year.
