Home made instruments

Using items we found at home we made our own instruments.  I invited my partner to join in at my home to made get the equipment and to practice our music performance.   Although there wasn’t a prize I was told that we were the top performers and my teacher really liked our performance.  We used the following items:


  • Wobbling acrylic sheet, that we had from various home-made art work we did in the past, which we shook to make the sound of rain.
  • We also used a wooden hammer to hit the acrylic sheet to make the sound of thunder.
  • Using a open tube, which we spun around creating a sound similar to the sound of the wind.
  • We also got some used paper wrappings from my father’s office and crumbled it to make it sound like crunching leaves when someone walks in the forest.
