Synopsis:

'Making Music' shows children how to make rhythm, string, wind and keyboard instruments from all kinds of ordinary household items and natural materials.

Synopsis:

Duet for Zipper and Velcro. Sonata for Milk Carton Guitar. Kitchen Concerto. Every home and classroom is crammed with objects kids can use to make music. This book teaches kids, parents, and teachers how to see musical possibilities in everything from a crumpled sheet of paper to thimbles glued to the fingertips of a glove.

Two of the most respected names in arts education for children have teamed up to produce Making Music. With her imaginative projects and whimsical drawings, Ann Sayre Wiseman shows kids how to make rhythm, string, wind, and keyboard instruments from all kinds of household items and natural materials. The projects range from simple castanets made of walnut shells to a complex zither made of wood. John Langstaff, preeminent music educator, teaches children how to make music with their homemade instruments, whether solo, in a duet, in a small ensemble, or with a full classroom orchestra. He starts with rhythm games and moves on to teaching kids about music basics, such as tempo.

Making Music gets kids excited about sounds, shows them how to make their own instruments, and helps them recognize that everything in the world makes its own music.
