Alfred Music Proudly Participates in Make Music Day National Events
June 26, 2018
Alfred Music is thrilled to have once again partnered with Make Music Alliance on June 21, 2018 to support guitar and ukulele Make Music Day events nationwide. Since 1922, Alfred Music has been dedicated to helping people learn, teach, and play music and continually looks for ways to help the world experience the joy of making music.
Make Music is a free celebration of music around the world on June 21st. Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, it is now held on the same day in more than 750 cities in 120 countries. Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music is open to anyone who wants to take part. All of it is free and open to the public.
As part of the 2018 Mass Appeal series, Alfred Music helped thousands of guitarists to rock out for Make Music Day. In dozens of cities, amid 37 guitar specific events, guitarists of all levels came out for free lessons, to play along in a massive strumming crowd. Free Alfred Music songbooks were distributed to all, so that everyone could play along.
This year’s songs included "Time is On My Side," "House of the Rising Sun," "If I Only Had a Brain," "Theme from Ghostbusters," "She Loves You," and "Satisfaction."
In addition, Alfred Music provided free copies of It’s Ukulele Time at 58 Mass Appeal Ukulele events, giving everyone a set of classic songs to play together.
