Making Musical Instruments with Kids
67 Easy Projects for Adults Working with Children
By Bart Hopkin
Book and CD
This is a book of easy-to-build, low-or-no-cost musical instruments that can be constructed by children under adult supervision, or, in some cases, by older kids without supervision. Examples of the instruments include washtub bass, driftwood marimba, thumb piano, bucket drums and flower pot bells: simple stuff, but stuff kids can have fun with.
The book comes with an audio CD presenting the sounds of the instruments in short, lively solo and ensemble pieces.
In the classroom and out, instrument making is an excellent hands-on learning activity, and this book will serve well as a valuable instructional resource. But more importantly, it's an enjoyable guide to simple instrument making for its own sake.
