Free Music Day Schedule & Regestration


The "Musical Instrument Petting Zoo" is where school aged children have an opportunity to try a variety of our band and orchestra instrument rentals to help them get a better idea of what instrument they may want to learn to play in and out of school.

45-minute class includes songs, rhythmic rhymes, movement, and instrument play. These activities are presented as informal, non-performance-oriented musical experiences--developmentally appropriate for children and easy for parents and caregivers--regardless of their own musical ability.

On the rare 5th Saturday of the month, we like to get our jam on! All you need to bring is your ukulele and any/all of your favorite songbooks. We'll do a round robin: You pick the song - you (have the option of) leading the song. This is a low-stress environment where we can have fun playing all the music that we might not ordinarily have the chance to play.

For eager beginners to learn the basics of guitar to start making music immediately! In this class, you will learn your first 8 chords, some strumming and picking patterns, how to read and understand guitar tablature and your first few songs.

Ukulele is so kid friendly your children will be playing songs in the very first class, giving them a sense of accomplishment and a desire to practice and learn. Skills learned on the ukulele are easily transferable if they choose to pick up another instrument later on. This class includes simple two & three chord songs that allow each student to progress at an easy pace. Children will learn some basic chords & strumming, how to read tab, essential motor skill exercises and some simple, familiar songs.

Tickets will be for sale at the front counter all throughout the day. Raffle prizes include: free instrument rental for one year, one month of free lessons, instruments, gift cards, t-shirts and more!
