Celebrate Teach Music Week with Guitars and Ukes in the Classroom’s FREE Traveling Ukulele Zoo

About the Event

It is Teach Music Week put on by Keep Music Alive and to help celebrate, we invite you and your family to join us for our popular FREE Traveling Ukulele Zoo!

This exciting, hands-on musical experience is for children of all ages. It will be presented at Civita Park in the green space above the play structures with plenty of free parking. Bring your blanket and gather round to learn about, see, touch, strum, and hear the sounds of a dozen different kinds of ukuleles and similar stringed folk instruments.

You’ll enjoy a tall tale told by Guitars and Ukes in the Classroom’s (GITC) own tuning archangel, “Uncle Rodney” Howard, explore qualities that are special about each ukulele, and notice what the instruments have in common. Many children who have attended the “Ukulele Zoo” have discovered an instrument they like the most!

In case of rain, this event will be rescheduled. Please email [email protected] for an update or if you have any questions.

This event will be facilitated by GITC founder, Jess Baron and “Uncle Rodney,” with assistance from additional GITC teachers. It promises to spark inspiration for the child in all of us!
