ORGANIZATION: Keep Music Alive

Keep Music Alive Mission

Keep Music Alive is looking for volunteers to help with some of our musical instrument petting zoos in New Jersey. We host events at schools, libraries and community events. These events are extremely fun interacting with kids and letting them try out a few instruments. Musical experience is not required but is definitely a plus. Keep Music Alive representatives will demo a few of the simple instruments for you before event starts. Thanks in advance for considering this opportunity!

About Keep Music Alive

Our Keep Music Alive mission is to help more kids (and adults) reap the educational, therapeutic and social benefits of playing music. Our major programs are Teach Music Week (March), Kids Music Day (October) and year-round musical instrument petting zoo events.

Mission Statement

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.
