It’s time for Spring Strings Music Weekend! This Friday, May 7 through Monday, May 11, Please Touch Museum is celebrating all things strings. We will be taking a special look and listen to instruments that use strings to make their sound-- like the violin and the guitar!
Come check out the special ballet performances by the Rock School on Saturday, May 8, as they dance to music made by string instruments, or listen to the Run of the Mill String Band perform on Sunday, May 9. This special music weekend will engage children (and adults!) of all ages by providing unique learning opportunities. We will learn the importance of being gentle with musical instruments, hone our fine motor skills while strumming the auto-harp, and practice new vocabulary, such as vibrato and forte. Plus, in celebration of Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 9, all moms will receive FREE admission!
Music is the perfect tool for independent and cooperative play, so come join us for Spring Strings! For a detailed schedule, please visit our website here!
We're all about learning through play.
Join Pinky, one of Please Touch Museum's resident puppets, on an inside look into all the fun, educational things happening at Philly's Children's Museum. This blog is not just about what we do at the museum, but about the educational philosophy behind why we do what we do.
