1 person is interested
Keep Music Alive is hosting a Musical Instrument Petting Zoo outside at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as partr of their Celebration Day on October 24th. We're coming from Philadelphia and need additional celeveland area volunteers to help - Believe me when I say these events are incredibly inspiring as you witness children interacting with musical instruments, often for the very first time. We bring guitars, keyboards, ukuleles and dozens of different types of percussion instruments (and sometimes violins when we have a volunteer with that talent). If you or anyone you know might be interested in helping with one of these events please let us know. Note don't need to be an experienced musician to help, just interested in music and helping kids. Thanks all!
About Keep Music Alive
4949 Jackson Drive, Brookhaven, PA 19015, US
Our Keep Music Alive mission is to promote the value of music: for children's education, for the many types of therapy now utilizing music, and for our overall happiness as a society. Our goal is to increase the number of kids and adults reaping the educational, therapeutic and social benefits of playing music.
Keep Music Alive is the founder of two international music holidays: Teach Music Week (3 rd week in March) and Kids Music Day (1 st Friday in October). Teach Music Week is designed to encourage musicians and music schools everywhere to offer a free lesson to new students (kids or adults). Kids Music Day is designed to encourage music schools and retail locations to hold community events featuring kids and music. In 2017 , there were over 600 music schools and retail locations participating in these two music holidays.
Kids Music Day now appears in the official Chase Calendar of Events and several large chains have participated in Teach Music Week/Kids Music Day including Guitar Center, Music & Arts, School of Rock, Music Together, Kindermusik and Long & McQuade. We are seeking volunteers to help make Kids Music Day and Teach Music Week internationally recognized holidays that serve as annual rallying points for music education.
