Innovation and Experimentation Inspire Recycled Instruments at AHS



After exploring modern day instruments and their means of sound production, the Recycled Instruments class at AHS began building their own instruments using recycled materials.  The students’ instrument choices range from a cigar box guitar to an innovative string spinning wheel instrument.  Through experimentation with design and building materials, each student successfully produced a fully functioning musical instrument.  For their final task, music teacher Ms. Catherine Hofius, asks students to compose a piece for their instrument that fully communicates their musical ideas.
