Yesterday Paul and Jason Stein (our trombone teacher), took 6 of our students on tour! They performed in South Philadelphia at the Fels Community Center for 60 of their peers, aged 6-12. The Tune Up Philly kids played and presented their instruments in an educational outreach setting. They taught about scales, instrument families, melodies and rhythms. The performance culminated in an interactive polyrhythm game between our students and the audience.
It was really exciting for our students. Upon getting off the Broad Street Line at the Walnut/Locust stop one student yelled ” Hello New York!”
We can’t wait to take more of our musical ambassadors out into the community!
