Music petting zoo gets children playing music

Youngsters benefit from free exposure to music instruments.
Great deals on musical instruments
The musical equivalent of a petting zoo is giving children the opportunity to explore a range of [music instruments]( they would not usually play with. In much the same way a regular animal petting zoo gives youngsters the rare chance to engage with animals they ordinarily wouldn't come across; the musical counterpart gets children playing with [instruments]( like the [trumpet](, African [drums]( and a xylophone. Held at the Stetson University, the annual free event – now in its fourth year – offers parents a valuable lifeline in engaging their children in music, reported the Orlando Sentinel. This is because the economic downturn has forced many parents to cut music lessons and/or from buying music instruments because it has become unaffordable. Music is increasingly seen as something that is important to a child's early development, which recent research from the UCLA backs up. Sharla Mercado, a private [piano]( instructor who helped organise the music sessions, told the online news provider: "There are so many studies that show time and time again that music helps the brain." The Florida Music Educators Association found that students who engage in more arts-based and music-based subjects have a higher graduation rate compared to other students.
