Music is nothing more than organized sound, no matter what " instrument " you play.
In this fun-filled workshop called, " Taking Notes", we will create and play with an orchestra made entirely of Junk!
With this orchestra, we will learn about putting sounds together like a composer does. By playing with sounds, and incorporating the ideas of rhythm, time, tempo, melody, loudness, softness we will be able to create our own musical masterpieces!
We will finish this course with the ability to fearlessly create our own music and share it with others. Without a doubt everyone will walk away with a great big smile and an even greater love for
All are welcome!
