Make Music Portland ME
Zimbabwean Marimba Music Mass Appeal

Here's a unique opportunity. Learn to play a real Zimbabwean song on marimba, also referred to as "giant wooden xylophones". No experience or skill is needed, just curiosity. Musician and teacher, Jacob Wolff, will be offering to teach folks to make some basic music on a drop in basis, arrive early stay late, have fun making music, from 1 - 3. (This will be most appropriate for adults and older children.) There will also be breaks to allow time for children of all ages to explore the instruments freestyle. (And for adults to explore the fine offerings on tap.) Jacob is the director, a founding member and the instrument builder of Maine Marimba Ensemble.
