Making Music
By Ann Sayre Wiseman and John Langstaff
Book
96 pages
Elementary age children

Learn to create and play 70 homemade musical instruments. Using imaginative projects and whimsical drawings, Wiseman shows kids how to make rhythm, string, wind, and keyboard instruments from all kinds of ordinary household items and natural materials. Langstaff teaches children how to make music with their homemade instruments - as a solo, in a duet, in a small family ensemble, or with a full classroom orchestra. He starts with rhythm games and then moves on to teaching such music basics as tempo. This book gets kids excited about sounds, shows them how to make their own instruments, and helps them recognize that everything in the world makes music.

Contents:
Projects in CAPS = how to make instruments; regular type = how to make music with them.

I was looking for a book that would provide music for the xylophone but didn't really find anything. This book looks like fun so am getting it anyway.
