Exploring Sound

Music and sound are essential elements of games, movies, and other interactive experiences. In this workshop, your child will explore how sound effects are made and heard. Children will also learn the fundamentals of rhythm and melody using an ocarina and instruments of their own creation.

Your child will explore:

  • How to construct simple instruments
