Make Music


Make Music Day Newark is led by the incredible team at Arts Ed Newark! Arts Ed Newark (AEN), which operates under the fiscal umbrella of Newark Arts, is a strategic alliance of over 100 arts education stakeholders who collaborate to ensure all children in grades PreK-12 in the city of Newark have equitable access to high quality, sequential arts education opportunities, both in and out of school.



This day welcomes children, teens, young people, adults, and folks of all backgrounds to make music! You don’t need to be classically trained or a professional, just someone who wants to celebrate the power of music. We plan on hosting an activity in all 5 wards so Newark residents have access to fun and inspiring programming. We also encourage Newark residents to make music in their own homes using what they have and share it on social media using #MakeMusicDay #MMDNewark.

Stay tuned for the formal call for participation!

Signing up will be through a google form which will be sent out soon!!!
