Clear step-by-step photographs for every project make it easy for young readers to copy the techniques, learn from them, and delight in the results. It introduces very simple ideas in music theory and sound production, in an easy-to-understand way. All the projects use readily available materials and very basic equipment that you can find around the home.

This book is specially designed to build on children's instinctive musical talent, by teaching them about a whole range of instruments to play, and new types of sounds to explore. They will learn how to make and decorate their own musical instruments from all manner of basic materials and odds and ends that are readily found around the home, and how to produce all kinds of noises from them.The projects include a bass made out of an old cardboard box, a bottle xylophone, and a bugle fashioned from a funnel and a garden hose.
