The Kalimba Handout is the accompaniment to the DIY Kalimba (aks. Thumb Piano) Project Power Point. Print these off and have your students follow along in the power point presentation.
Description of DIY Kalimba Power Point:
What better way to engage your students in music than by having each student make their own instrument? Kalimbas use affordable arts supplies and are easy to put together. In addition to the step-by-step process of making the kalimba, this power point gives a quick history behind this instrument and also explains the science behind the production of sound.
This DIY project is a great way to lead into a music composition unit as well.
