Keep Music Alive Mission

Keep Music Alive is seeing volunteers for Musical Instrument Petting Zoo events happening in Spring 2023. at several locations in the Delaware County area. NOTE - You do not need to be a musician to assist - we mostly need friendly faces to help us interact with families at our exhibit. We bring guitars, ukuleles, keyboards and dozens of different types of percussion instruments for kids to play with - its basically a "please touch museum" for musical instruments. We're not teaching kids how to play, we are simply showing them how to make the sounds so they will be inspired to start their own musical journey. If you are interested please send a note and we'll reply right back - thanks in advance for your time and consideration!

Keep Music Alive seeks to have diverse representation within our volunteer teams. BIPOC and LGBTQ candidates are encouraged to apply
