Amado Espinoza Workshop

MISSION:To inspire curiosity and respect for world cultures and ecology; to stimulate creativity and resourcefulness; and to promote a sense of togetherness through music in the classroom and beyond.

Amado and Karen’s Junkyard Orchestra (Grades K-Adult)

Format:Interactive Assembly/ Art Workshop
Duration: 45 min

Amado and Karen’s Junkyard Orchestra demonstrates how the science of music making and the art can combine to help save the planet Earth. In a delightful, interactive assembly, the two use instruments made from repurposed or recycled materials to make music with the audience.Adults and children alike will tap into their innate ability to explore and be resourceful, just like our ancestors, the first music makers!

As a classroom or small group workshop, students will have fun making instruments and making music together, consequently promoting resourcefulness, self-esteem and community building! Students will be asked to bring objects to re-purpose (like disposable water bottles or paper towel tubes, depending on age) as well as supplies (scissors, tape, etc.) and materials to decorate their instruments.
