I would be very interested in leading 'Instrument Making' workshops in schools, clubs, hospitals, or anywhere else it might be of interest. Everything from simple cigar box / biscuit tin instruments, made in a few minutes, to more detailed, electrical instruments can be demonstrated. I think there is a lot of fun to be had in making music from junk, and there is a genuine thrill in playing something you have built. - Please get in touch if you would be interested. Cheers.
