-- The Salem Jazz and Soul Festival recently started a monthly music-education series called “MusicKidz”
in partnership with Salem Public Library. The free classes are geared,toward children in grades K through 5 and take place in the library’s children’s room.
“We’re thrilled to partner with the Salem Jazz and Soul Festival. We recognize how important music education is and we’re excited to be able to offer that in a free and community environment,”
said Tricia Allen, head of the library’s children’s department.
February’s program was called “Rockin’ and Rhythm: A Lesson in Percussion.”
The next class, March 16 from 2 to 3 p.m., will be similar and also include musical storytelling. Sign up will take place after March 1.
The series will continue through May. Check http://www.salemjazzsoul.org/
