Little Steven Launches ‘Soulfire Teacher Solidarity Tour 2018’

The initiative recognises the work that educators do across North America and will highlight the TeachRock curriculum.

TeachRock tour

Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul have announced a headline tour, to begin in October, that will introduce TeachRock, a free, multi-media, K-12 interdisciplinary curriculum from Steven Van Zandt’s Rock and Roll Forever Foundation.

The Soulfire Teacher Solidarity Tour 2018 concerts are free for all types of educators and a guest, and teachers are invited to sign up for the shows here. The initiative is in recognition of the work that educators do across North America, and will highlight the TeachRock curriculum, which meets prevailing standards in English Language Arts, Social Studies/History, the Fine and Performing Arts and includes STEAM and advisory material. Complete details and tickets are available here.

Each show will see Little Steven and the staff of TeachRock hosting professional development workshops, which he will attend and which are also free. They will encourage educators with techniques and content allowing them to use music to inspired their students — even the ones who have never touched a musical instrument.

In many stops on the tour, such workshops will also count towards continuing education hours and license renewal. Attendees will receive a teacher-only edition Teacher Solidarity Tour t-shirt, a certificate of attendance and tickets for that evening’s concert for an educator and a guest.

“This is a little different than the professional development experience you may be used to,” says Little Steven. “This is a  rock ‘n’ roll  experience.”
