Free Instrument Petting Zoo on a Rooftop Park!

  What? Is it Back to School again already? That’s right! For many Bay Area schools, students begin to head back in mid-August. Even though summer is starting to wind down, however, that doesn’t mean summer fun has ended for good! Don’t miss a FREE Instrument Petting Zoo on Saturday, August 11th at the Salesforce Park Grand Opening! Join us at the park’s children’s area for three hours of musical fun on the gorgeous rooftop park in downtown San Francisco. MUST has teamed up with the folks at Salesforce Park in downtown San Francisco for a month of Saturday music events. We kick off the Fall season with an Instrument Petting Zoo at the Salesforce Park Grand Opening on Saturday, August 11th, and continue the fun every Saturday through August with a MUST teaching artist leading songs on the rooftop park. What’s an Instrument Petting Zoo? It’s an opportunity for kids of all ages to explore new instruments and make some music outside. Our staff offers many instruments, including guitar, keyboard, accordion, tambourine, xylophone, castanets, bells, and many other percussion instruments. So come out and join us in downtown San Francisco for music and fun in the sun (or maybe in the fog…)! Please follow and like...

Turn over a new leaf this Spring: volunteer with MUST!

  Spring is officially here! Why not turn over a new leaf? Volunteer your time with Music in Schools Today and help bring music to schools in the Bay Area! April is National Volunteer Month, and there is no better time to begin volunteering to expand our music education programs.   With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering are enormous to you, your family, and your community. Giving to others can also help protect your mental and physical health. Helping others kindles happiness, as many studies have demonstrated. When researchers at the London School of Economics examined the relationship between volunteering and measures of happiness in a large group of American adults, they found the more people volunteered, the happier they were. Compared with people who never volunteered, the odds of being “very happy” rose 7% among those who volunteer monthly and 12% for people who volunteer every two to four weeks.
