Dec. 28: ‘Make &Take’ Musical Instruments 

LEWISTON -   On December 28, Museum L-A continues its popular make-your-own musical instrument programs for youngsters age 5 – 12.  “Make and Take” will use the current exhibit, "The Power of Music," as their starting point and demonstrate how music can come from all kinds of common objects as well as intricately-created instruments. Both programs will take place at Museum L-A, 35 Canal Street in the Bates Mill Complex from 10:30 a.m. to 12 Noon.

Nine to 12-year-olds will "Make and Take" a xylophone. Participants will construct a pipe xylophone and experiment with their own system of musical notation, with the goal of composing a simple tune. Registration fee  is $10.

Children age 5-7 will “Make and Take” a percussion instrument. They will learn about the different instruments in an orchestra and make their own tambourine or maraca to play along with a song. Registration fee is $8.

Pre-registration for the programs is required and family discounts are available.  Contact Museum L-A at 333-3881 or for more information or to register a child.
