Pots & Pans: The Science of Sound
1 hour workshop, 5-10 participants - $50
Ages 6 and up
1 hour workshop, 11-30 participants - $100
The favourite of kids and teachers alike, 'Pots and Pans' is a hands-on, easy-to-understand exploration of music production and the science of sound. Participants use everyday objects as instruments to record percussion sounds for a pre-made pop song arrangement. Through fun activities and demonstrations participants learn about the mechanics of sound and the creation of recorded music. Your group can take home a recording of their finished song to share with family and friends for a $25 processing fee. Feel free to listen to our samples from previous workshops below.
Introduction to Guitar

Ages 6 to 12
Introduction to Guitar is a great interactive workshop designed to give participants the chance to listen, learn, and create all things guitar! Participants learn about different types of guitars and guitar music through hands-on activities including a team guitar-building challenge, name that style game, and make your own sound effects contest. Participants are also given the chance to try their hand at playing a variety of guitars to experience music-making for themselves.
