Did June sneak up on you, and you're still not sure of your Make Music Day plans?
Not to worry – in 66 cities around the country, Mass Appeal events are taking place on June 21. Not quite music lessons, not quite jam sessions, Mass Appeals are a special kind of musical happening of their own. And anyone can take part – in many cases, you don’t even need to bring an instrument!
Just show up to one of these 129 Mass Appeals to get a free Hohner harmonica and join a harmonica band, pick up a pair of Promark drumsticks and start bucket drumming, use RBI percussion instruments at a drum circle, or strum along on the ukulele. It couldn't be simpler!
Or venture further off the beaten path, and join one of the 26 Flowerpot Music events (with free mallets from Vic Firth), 13 interactive Makey Makey events, 28 Jumbie Jam events for steelpans, or 8 Sousapaloozas (with free reeds for sax and clarinet players from D'Addario).
Happy Make Music Day!
