Los Angeles, CA—July 17, 2017
Alfred Music is thrilled to have partnered with Make Music Alliance on June 21, 2017 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 2017 Mass Appeal series, Alfred Music helped thousands of guitarists to rock out for Make Music Day. In dozens of cities, 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 “Margaritaville,” “Blue Moon,” “I Can See Clearly Now,” “Somewhere Over The Rainbow,” and “New York New York”.
In addition, Alfred Music provided free copies of “It’s Ukulele Time” at Mass Appeal Ukulele events, giving everyone a set of classic songs to play together.
