Music 4 Kids
At Music4Kids young visitors have the chance to take their first musical steps and test instruments. On site, there will be a team of music teachers from the Frankfurt Music Academy to help participants how to use the instruments properly, so they quickly play their first notes and gain inspiration for making music themselves.
The area is split into different musical-instrument segments, so each group of instruments forms its own experiential world. The spectrum covered stretches from classic percussion, via guitars and string instruments, to electronic instruments, such as e-drums and digital pianos.
As in previous years, kindergarten groups from the entire Rhine-Main region are invited to participate.
Music4Kids is supported by music teachers from:
