Mocktoberfest, in partnership with The Mira Theatre Guild, is raising funds for Mocktoberfest Kids, a free music program for Vallejo youth. The program goal is to provide 10 kids with an introductory set of 10 lessons with a reputable instructor and a musical instrument to keep.

The program design allows for interest-driven study. Participants choose the instrument and style or genre of his or her personal interest. Music programs in this area are scarce. Mocktoberfest’s goal is to bring access to high caliber instructors and instruments so that kids may enjoy the lifelong growth and opportunities music education provides.
