Rock On! The Power of Music


FACES Magazine April 2021. Rock and roll changed music and the world forever.  Learn about the past, present, and future of this musical style. 

This edition of FACES Magazine really rocks. Explore the history of one of America’s iconic sounds: rock and roll! Elvis, electric guitars, and the evolution of rock are all features in this jammin’ FACES Magazine.


Meet some key “players” in the world of rock and roll, understand how the magic of music works, and take a stroll through history to see how we got from the blues to Blue Suede Shoes. Along the way, you’ll learn how to pick a band name, make a band shirt, and create your own guitar so you can be a rock star, too.  As always, you’ll find fascinating facts, engaging games, hands-on crafts, and more!
