Home-made and Found Instruments!

Leave a comment

Last month we had our Music as Expression group in Newmarket. We got together each Saturday to play music together – sometimes we just did free jams, but we also looked up pop songs online to play and sing together.

Percussion instruments were available for people to play, but some folks got really creative and made instruments out of things around their houses! It just goes to show that music can be found anywhere!

Keep an eye on our Expressive and Therapeutic Arts page to find out when the next Music group will be, and to learn about upcoming arts groups in your community!
