Building Instruments

Let’s make music with instruments that we make ourselves!

Join us to create all kinds of fun instruments! We’ll make things like tyranno-dinosaur horns, cardboard box guitars, sonotube hand drums, big tube, one-string bass, tambourines, kalimbas, pan pipes, shakers, ocean drums, and more. Think up your own instrument, design it with the class, and we’ll try to make it!
