Play Marimba! offers a joyful and rigorous music-making experience for children and teens. Using enormous African marimbas we engage in a technology-free social experience that builds confidence, mind- body coordination and teamwork. Our program began as a partnership with Loma Vista Immersion Academy in Petaluma in 2016 for their 5th and 6th grade students. In the last 2 years we have expanded, adding an afterschool program for 7-8th graders and starting classes at the Sebastopol Community and Cultural Center. We also give back to the community, sharing our music at other elementary schools, fundraisers for local nonprofits, farmers’ markets and other public venues.
