Music teaching with recycled materials
About Lesson

We’ll make today a simple, fun instrument. All we need is:

  • a embroidery circle,
  • a few elastic bands,
  • some tape and
  • a small bucket.

Choose different sizes and colors for your elastic bands. Put them around the small circle. Then use the big circle to secure them. Try to get different tones out of them. When you’re happy with it, put the circle on top of a bucket and secure it with tape. The bucket is optional, but it will amplify the sound. Now try and make some melodies!
