67 Easy Projects For Adults Working With Children
From spoons on balloons to floating bowl bells to soda straw oboes, Making Musical Instruments With Kids is a treasure trove of musical instrument ideas simple enough for children to make. It's written primarily for adults who work with children, including teachers, parents, and others involved in the lives of young people. The instruments, presented with easy-to-follow instructions, are both kid-buildable and kid-playable, without need for difficult tools, using readily accessible materials. The book comes with an audio CD presenting the sounds of the instruments in 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.
