Keep Music Alive Announces Victor Wooten as Official Spokesperson for 6th Annual Kids Music Day (10/1/2021)

PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Keep Music Alive, a national music education advocacy organization, today announced that Bassist, Author and 5 time Grammy Winner Victor Wooten will serve as the official spokesperson for the 6th Annual Kids Music Day. Victor was named Bass Player of the Year three times by Bass Player Magazine while Rolling Stone included him in their Top 10 Bassists of All Time List. Victor is a champion for Music Education, having founded Victor Wooten’s Center for Music & Nature, a music education camp where he and other top musicians lead a variety of classes featuring all instruments each summer. Victor’s latest book, “The Spirit of Music: The Lesson Continues,” is an inspiring parable of music’s importance and the many threats it faces in today’s world.

The 6th Annual “Kids Music Day” will be celebrated on Friday October 1st, 2021. Each year, Keep Music Alive partners with music schools, music stores and other music organizations around the world to hold special events that benefit and celebrate kids playing music. The goal is to highlight the importance of including music in children’s education. Events held by participating locations include open houses, instrument petting zoos, free music lessons, student music performances, community/family jams, instrument donation drives, kids open mics and more. The Music & Arts retail chain will host two free group music lessons at 180+ lesson locations nationwide:

All group lesson attendees can register for a free trial lesson with an instructor of their choice, and if they sign-up to become a lessons student, they will receive FREE registration (additional $30 value). Keep Music Alive will also host a Music & Arts Giveaway at KeepMusicAlive.org with a $100 Gift Card prize and a full month of free lessons.

Keep Music Alive is honored to welcome these partners helping to share the Kids Music Day message, inspiring more kids to begin their own musical journey.

In March 2021, Keep Music Alive partnered with over 750 music school and music retail locations in 15 countries to offer free lessons to new students (children & adults) as part of the 7th Annual Teach Music Week.
