I took a trip to the Grammy Museum at L.A. LIVE this past week and upon entering I was in awe of the whole set up. After viewing some of the most iconic Grammy performances in the museum’s theater I completely forgot I was there to work. I instantly wanted to see and try everything. The entire museum was interactive. You could jump into a sound booth and mix your own songs. Or grab a mic with friends and harmonize to a classic Beatles song.
The hip hop exhibit was my favorite. It displays hand written song lyrics from rapper Tupac Shakur, Run DMC’s leather jacket from their “Walk this Way” performance with Aerosmith and a hip hop sneaker gallery. The John Lennon exhibit literally gave me chills. It explores his songwriting and his transition from a Beatle to a legendary writer.
The staff at the museum told me their main goal is to provide an education of the arts to students. The staff provides educators with strategies and key resources to show students the power of music. For teachers who successfully integrate music into their classroom the museum offers them the opportunity to win tickets to the Grammy Awards and a free visit to the museum for their students. This place seriously cannot get any better. I heart the Grammy Museum!
