Making Diddley Bows (Monday and Tuesday, July 18-19)
Students will have the opportunity to learn how to create instruments from found objects based off of the concept of a diddley bow. Diddley bows are single stringed instruments created from simple objects such as wire, wooden board, and glass bottle. This American instrument holds an important place in history within the development of the blues in the Deep South. Students will be able to experiment with how different objects affect the projection of sound from their instrument and then get to jam out with the finished instrument!
BOOM, BANG, CRASH! Drummer’s World!
