Bash the Trash

Last year, our 7th and 8th graders had the opportunity to make instruments for music class.  We studied how musicians classify world instruments, and each student chose a classification to tackle.  8th grade truly blew me away with their amazing creations!  We had a blast jamming together in class, and showed off a few instruments at our family STEAM night event in May.

Here are some of my favorite moments from class:

Students singing “Call Me Maybe” and playing on their rhythm instruments:


Rachel showing off her guitar:




Alex with his truly impressive trombone:



Nicholas with what he dubbed his “Styrophone”


What fun it was for me to see my kids embrace this project!
