For all you little rockers, the time has come to start your gar(b)age band with this Makedo project. No percussionist is complete without a tambourine, shakers and of course their lead guitarist so start gathering materials from your recycle bin and start jamming.

And if the pursuit of a life of rock and roll’ for your kid scares the bejesus out of you, how about a marching band, African drum group, classical orchestra or even nursery rhyme group? The musical possibilities using reclaimed materials are endless.

For inspiration, check out these very talented kids from a recycled orchestra in Paraguay playing very impressive renditions of Mozart from garbage! It’s an old favourite of ours. You can learn about their repurposing philosophy at Treehugger.com http://www.treehugger.com/culture/orchestra-paraguay-makes-beautiful-music-trash.html

Step 1: Find

Source materials from around your home. We’ve used disposable bowls and plates to make the drum shell and ribbon to decorate the rims.
