Pelham, Ruth Musicraft: Singing and Instrument Building Workshop Multicultural- Other,
Music
**Reduced fees available for multiple programs in one day or block booking with multiple libraries for the same day.** Teaching children to work cooperatively, to help each other accomplish tasks, to share ideas and materials, and to appreciate each other’s creations are all part of this fun-filled character education through music workshop. Working in large and small groups, children build simple musical instruments made from recycled bottle caps, wood bits, cardboard boxes or paint sticks, and also sing songs about friendship, kindness and getting along. These lessons further children's understanding about recycling and reusing, and about caring for the Earth and our global family. A highlight of the workshop is when each child plays his or her instrument during the “Instrument Band Song” which is enthusiastically sung at the conclusion of the workshop. All materials are prepared and supplied by Music Mobile.
