Educational Visits to the Colorado Music Hall Of Fame
The singer and songwriter Jewel once said that to some musical education is a privilege, while for others like her it’s something essential to being human.
We agree wholeheartedly and at the Colorado Music Hall of Fame, we celebrate the talented musicians who have enriched humanity and culture throughout the world by paying tribute to the influences that have derived from the Centennial State. Part of our mission is education because we all believe (the Board, staff, and inductees) is that the Hall represents a guide-post for up-and-coming young musicians that says, “We did it, and so can you!”
Educating Colorado’s Musicians of Tomorrow
The museum is interactive so guides are not necessary but if you are interested in a special tour with Chris Daniels, the Director of the Hall you can contact him below. He loves working with teachers, tutors, and homeschool groups eager to expose students to the rich contributions Colorado’s musicians have made to our world. Chris is a working musician and a professor at the University of Colorado Denver and often times he is not able to break away from his duties – but when he can, it is truly one of his favorite things to do.
Tickets for educational visits are free thanks in part to Comfort Dental and a community of donors who are passionate about preserving our state’s history and providing a resource for music education.
Tours are limited to groups of between 10 and 20 – with 10 people going through at a time – it makes it more fun than trying to see and hear everything in larger crowds.
Scheduling a ‘Special Event’ Field Trip to Colorado Music Hall of Fame
As mentioned, the director is a working musician and educator but you can contact Chris through the museum by calling his cell (303) 320-7599 or sending an email to Chris@cmhof.org. Let us know how we can help make your trip out the Red Rocks Amphitheatre a memorable one for the whole group.
