Musical Instrument Building
Have some fun inventing and building whoville-style musical instruments. This session will connect understandings around volume, length, shape, and materials to their impact on musical pitch, tone, and texture. Using found objects and various building materials, teachers can get creative in this is a hands-on sound exploration activity that is fun and easy to do with students of any grade level.
No prior musical background required.
Industry Panel Discussion
Grab a coffee and sit down with our guest artists for a conversation about the music industry, career paths, and what we can do in education to support our students’ interests in these fields.
During this time, teachers can get together with other teachers to network, share ideas, ask questions, and focus on learning and growing from each other.
