I first grasped music’s pedagogical power in 4th grade, when I used a tune to help me memorize the 50 states (in alpha order) for a test. But the lessons can start earlier – and be fun for both kids and grownups – as demonstrated by Alphabet Rockers. This award winning album features hip hop sounds and DJ-style scratching set around lyrics – written in collaboration with real teachers – that educate about numbers, colors, shapes, spelling, daily routines, and social graces. You can catch Alphabet Rockers’ educational, interactive show at the Regent Theatre this Saturday (9/6 at 11am) or get your own little School of Rock going at home with their CD. AR even offers track coordinated activity pages on their website.
Want to win 4 tickets to see Alphabet Rockers, or be 1 of 4 winners to receive a copy of their CD? Here’s how:
