ABC Music Volunteers at Matthew Turner Elementary School

 

ABC Music volunteered at Matthew Turner Elementary School a couple of weeks ago for their annual Art Day. We worked with John Douglas, who is a teacher at ABC Music and the Benicia Elementary Band conductor. We allow the kids to explore music and teach in the classrooms for the day. We do this at each of the elementary schools in Benicia.
