VH1 Save the Music Foundation Family Day

After a one-and-a-half-year hiatus, VH1 Save the Music Foundation Family Day returns to NYC this weekend. On Saturday, March 9 from 10am to 4pm, local families can stop by the Anderson School for a free, open house–style fete celebrating music education. As they make their way through each classroom, tots can join mini-performances (think Disney on Broadway) and workshops, like Moey's Music Party's "Ahoy Matey," where courageous kids walk the plank while singing pirate songs. After trying out trumpets and guitars in instrument exploration rooms, kids can also jam with drums and tambourines at the Little Orchestra Society's play-along music lessons. Local vendors, giveaways and unique activities like painting (and keeping!) your own electric guitar await in the cafeteria, while drool-worthy food trucks will be hanging outside in the playground all day long. But perhaps the real reason to check out VH1 Save the Music Foundation Family Day is DJ Fulano, a nationally-touring disc jockey who's recording a rap album and modeling for major publications and clothing brands. The kicker? He's nine years old.
