The Instrument Petting Zoo gives children and adults a chance to have an up-close look at musical instruments and play them under the supervision of musicians. Children are excited and delighted to try out instruments in our petting zoo, and many choose to take music lessons!

- Provide hands-on opportunities to touch, feel, and play string, wind, brass, and percussion instruments.
- Help participants learn to identify the family to which a given instrument belongs.
- Discover the joy that comes from making music!
