(CelebrityAccess) — Steven Van Zandt and his band Disciples of Soul are hitting the road in May in support of a charitable cause.
The group’s brief tour, which kicks off on April 29th at the State Theatre in Brunswick, New Jersey, will benefit the TeachRock initiative for music education, which is part of Van Zandt’s Rock and Roll Forever Foundation.
TeachRock provides a selection of multimedia lesson plans and resources tied to music for teachers in middle and high schools.
“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,” Van Zandt said, announcing the tour.
Along with the tour, each stop will include a professional development workshops teachers to help them integrate the lesson plans into the classroom at no cost. Tickets to the shows for teachers are free.
