Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul have unveiled plans for a landmark live tour that will benefit TeachRock, the Rock and Roll Forever Foundation’s national initiative to bring music curriculum into schools across the country.
On this first-of-its-kind tour, Steven Van Zandt’s Rock and Roll Forever Foundation will be presenting the TeachRock curriculum through professional development workshops for teachers that will take place at every stop of the 2018–2019 tour.
Local educators who sign up for the free professional development sessions before each concert will receive a complimentary ticket to that evening’s show. To find out more and sign up for a TeachRock workshop, click here. Tickets are limited for each show.
According to Steven Van Zandt, “Music will forever be humanity’s most effective and consistent source of inspiration and motivation, and, we have learned, music turns out to be our most solid common ground for establishing communication between teachers and students which is where education begins.”
The Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul Teacher Appreciation Tour kicks off in New Jersey with the following shows:
Sunday April 29
New Brunswick, NJ
Saturday May 5
