🪕We Educate 🪕
Students experience music, history, and culture through a field trip to the Earl Scruggs Center. Field trips includes exhibit access, activities, and educational programming tied directly to North Carolina curriculum standards.
Teachers can bring the Earl Scruggs Center into their classroom! Our “On Tour” trunks are filled with items and curriculum-based activities that ignite a spirit of discovery. Each box is a collection of resources that explore a specific topic related to the rich musical and cultural heritage of the community/region and the further-reaching American south. The trunks includes lesson plans, activities and hands-on items that your students can touch and handle.
Give the gift of music to a child. Our Play It Forward program supplies beginner instruments on loan to youth and provides an opportunity for them to learn to play and build self confidence with music.
