We gave you a hint for this a few weeks ago, but here's the official worksheet to download to make your very own glass xylophone!
Let's see how many different tunes you can get out of it!
We were thrilled to see everyone on Monday having a bash and enjoying the beats!
Stay tuned for the latest photos of all the drumming action. See you next time! (Monday 3rd)
Here are the other dates you need to know:
There's no workshop on Mon 10th as it's the school holiday - have a night off!
We're jammin' on:
8th March is concert day! We'll be performing at Shake Rattle & Roll!
after that? ... Watch this space!
Take a look at our downloadable instruction sheet below for our version of a sensational Samba shaker! (It's been given the CCC sparkle!)
So let's get stuck in and make some super fun sounds!
If you’re coming to see Owen and Olly in any of our Junk Trunk concerts or Garbage Band workshops then watch this space for downloadable instructions on how to make some cool instruments out of things you find around the house!
In the meantime let’s get experimenting with sound! Here’s a mission for this week:
Try putting different amounts of water in a glass bottle (grown-ups might need to join in with this) and blowing across the top to get a note. What happens to the sound when you put more water in, or tip some out?
Your bottle might sound great, but it probably doesn’t look the part yet...why not go a step further and collect other bottles, fill them with different water levels and create your own bottle xylophone! To jazz it up a bit, you could dye the water different colours - we love this rainbow-inspired example!
It's going to be a great year for sport and culture in Scotland, and CCC will be joining in with the fun! We're especially excited to be getting involved in the buzz of the Commonwealth Games!
If you want to get in on the action too, then come along and join our All Drummed Up! band in Drumchapel, where we'll be drumming up a storm ahead of our Going for Gold concerts in May!
Come and see us after school on Monday 27th January at Stonedyke Neighbourhood Centre! We'll be kicking off with loads of fun and games at 4:30pm and we run until 6pm.
It's all FREE, so see you there! Look out for our leaflet below...
Our All Drummed Up! project based in Drumchapel will be back on the 27th January!
This time, we’re on a special mission – to get involved in the buzz of the Commonwealth Games! Our young musicians will have the opportunity to perform at our celebration concert, Going For Gold in the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on the 17th of May, as well as in local events during the build up!!
So what are you waiting for? Our classes are fabulous fun, and FREE! Please contact us for more info so you can play your part!
For any newcomers to All Drummed Up! here’s a wee taster:
Savourna Stevenson, the composer of our latest commission, The Snow Queen, tells us a bit about how she came up with the music! Hear the piece in full, set to words by Stuart Paterson, at our Christmas Wonderland concerts this weekend...Siobhan Redmond will be ready to take you on the musical journey as she narrates!
Special thanks to The RVW Trust, The Idlewild Trust and Creative Scotland, for making the commission and performance of The Snow Queen possible.
We're thrilled to announce that Taylor Browning-Walker, the winner of our Haunted House costume competition sponsored by A1 Toys dashed around with his trolley at the store in Silverburn on Saturday with great success!
