GARLAND (CBS 11 NEWS) - This afternoon the Preston Royal Library was anything but quiet. Instead of books, kids got up close and personal with musical instruments, through Kids Notes, an educational program by the Garland Symphony Orchestra. They learned about different types of instruments from a professional musician. But what makes this program really unique is the “petting zoo” where kids get to touch and even play instruments.

Alice Allen, Education Manager with the Garland Symphony Orchestra told us why the hands-on approach was beneficial. “We believe the way to really spark a love of music is for them to touch the instrument. We really think it helps keep them engaged no only while they are here but later on. It’s just great to see where that spark happens and to see when that glisten in their eye really happens.”

Kids Notes programs are throughout the summer at various locations. Click here for more information.
