Create new values from so called “trash” and building a musical instrument on your own? With a sound that lets the air vibrate? The flairdrum makes it possible: from recycled and generally accessible materials, a full-fledged instrument with a unique character and high attraction is created. And best of all: its ideal to build it yourself and make music together!
So do you want something special for the next project days in your school, the workshop space at your festival or the next team building event in your job?
Possible learning goals
The DrumOnAir workshop encompasses a broad spectrum of possible and essential learning objectives and can therefore stimulate decisive change processes for the individual or the group (depending on the client’s wishes, different accents can be set here):
- (New) access to your own musicality (Similar to the xylophone, the flairdrum allows quick success through the tuned notes even without knowledge of special techniques (fingers, tongue, etc.))
- Experience of your own creativity and self-efficacy (in building and making music)
- New perspective on so-called “waste” (upcycling, sustainability, handling of resources). Everyday objects are brought into a new context and create a new experience
- Transfer of social skills (cooperation, listening, trust, perseverance, conducting and leading)
- Strengthening the team spirit
- Teaching a variety of manual skills (drilling, sawing, punching, screwing, gluing, hammering, cutting)
Version 1: Build your own KlangPET
The focus in this format is on building together. At the end of an exciting construction process, the participants are the proud owners of a full-fledged instrument, the KlangPET (flairdrum with 5 bottles). Afterwards, an introduction to playing and playing songs together is possible.
Version 2: The Bottle-Orchestra
The focus here is on making music in a group. The construction process is significantly shortened and includes 1-2 bottles + 1 mallet per participant. Afterwards, there will be an intense session on playing together. The possible implementation here is very similar to those of boomwhakers.
Version 3: The Soundcircle
As part of a project week, a group of max. 15 participants will build a sound circle and play music together.
