WHEN YOU THINK OF PETTING ZOOS .. YOU PROBABLY THINK OF GOATS, SHEEP AND OTHER FARMYARD ANIMALS .

NOT IN STEVENS POINT TODAY.

THIS PETTING ZOO WAS ALL ABOUT TUBAS, VIOLINS AND GUITARS.

MARCH IS MUSIC EDUCATION MONTH .. AND TO GET THE WORD OUT, U-W-S-P STUDENTS GAVE PEOPLE A CHANCE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE INSTRUMENTS AT THE STEVENS POINT MALL.

THE STUDENTS SAY MUSIC IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT ..ESPECIALLY FOR YOUNG CHILDREN.

"It promotes reading skills .. social skills .. temperament .. they'll get along better with people in their classroom," said Heather Jones, event organizer.

THIS WAS THE SECOND ANNUAL INSTRUMENT PETTING ZOO.
