Emily commented on Free Object Orchestra

I taught a class at an afterschool arts program called "Reuse Band" along similar lines. A great introductory exercise is to give kids an object--for ex, a 2-liter soda bottle--and challenge them to see how many different sounds they can make with it. To boost creative confidence, look for opportunities to perform in public in casual settings--for ex, at a farmer's market, or just a "reuse jam" drumcircle-like thing in a park.
