Looking to jam? The Building for Kids Children’s Museum (BFKCM) will have free admission for Music Makers Free Day Saturday, August 5, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. This event, created in partnership with Mile of Music, will feature music programs from the Mile of Music Education Team, plus other music and art activities.
Along with the musical programs that will be happening all day long, families can enjoy the BFKCM exhibits and create musical instruments in the da Vinci Studio.
“Music supports learning,” said Jarrad Bittner, Executive Director at the BFKCM. “It involves more than singing or playing an instrument. It touches on many areas of development such as social, emotional, motor and language. It also encourages creativity, confidence and self-expression.”
