Musical revues are an excellent way for kids to learn about the history of rock ‘n roll music. It will also help them learn about marketing and management. By going back to rhythm and blues to see the evolution of contemporary music, they’ll gain a better appreciation for the music they enjoy today.
Besides, it’ll take you down memory lane and give you something to share with your kids. Psst: our music back in the 60’s and 70’s was revolutionary!
Seventh graders at Merit Academy started a business called Merit 50’s Entertainment and took their rock ‘n roll revue on the road. They performed 30-minute, 1-hour, and 2-hour musical revues for office, holiday and birthday parties. After getting their business off the ground, they opened a concert for Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Freddie “Boom-Boom” Cannon, and The Marvelettes!
Starting businesses during the summer can inspire them to do great things with their lives — and have fun doing it!
