Garage Rock is a fun musical experience where children and families can express themselves and experiment in creating musical sounds. The instruments in the exhibit, made of tools, plastic pipe, a pin ball machines, and other unexpected materials, are designed to be whimsical, eye-catching, and intriguing. Though you certainly won’t find these unique instruments in any orchestra, their unusual shapes and sounds challenge visitors to think about the components of music in new ways. While visitors strum, slap and spin, they can play with timbre, melody, pitch and the other basic elements of music.
