Making Musical Instruments

By Marina Jurjevic from The Grange Centre

In this post, Creative Arts Tutor Marina Jurjevic shows how a group of adult learners from The Grange Centre created musical instruments for a multi sensory outdoor project. The Grange Centre for People with Disabilities provides vital services supporting people with learning disabilities to lead independent and fulfilling lives.

This activity was run with adult learners but can easily be transferred to Primary School aged children. The activity can be run in approximately two hours, either in one or two parts but can be extended into other areas such as composing a musical or percussive performance.

What We Like About This Resource....

“It’s great to see music being explored in this way, and combining it with making creates a really interesting immersive project. This activity would work well as part of an extended project looking at musical instruments around the world and some of the natural materials they are made from.” – Rachel, AccessArt
