On Wednesday 16 May, we had the privilege of celebrating the gift of music. Alec Duncan from Child’s Play Music is a musician who makes his own instruments from everyday resources.
Children were given the opportunity to play a variety of instruments created from loose parts such as PVC pipes, hose pipes, aluminum pipes, storm water pipes, and ex-food plastic carboys. We played on balloon bassoons made from PVC pipe, a balloon, a piece of pipe and some elastic bands, hosepipe trumpets made from garden hose, a funnel and a sprinkler connector mouth piece.
We had a great time creating music!
Maybe you can try and make an instrument at home?
