Mike begins by showing and playing many instruments made of
recycled items as well as common items not usually seen as
musical instruments.

It is a 60 minute project.
The Shaker
The easiest workshop. A demonstration of musical instruments beginning with a horse’s
jawbone and ending with a modern guitar. Mike walks through the development of folk
instruments discussing and demonstrating what our ancestors used to make music.

Then, using easily acquired materials, Mike leads the students through the process of
making a shaker. There are several possibilities here ranging from the water bottle to
stick-and-bottle cap variety.

All ages, as long as an adult is with the 6 or 7-and-under child.
