This is the name of our Eco Project about making instruments from re-used and recycled materials, preventing them from going to landfill, saving energy and preventing climate change as well as providing an opportunity to learn about music and sound.
Workshops are so much fun and Educational too!
In 2014 Melody Makers created a really cool instrument making project for schools and the community called Landfill Rhythms. This was an initiative in response to Wirral Borough Councils Climate Change Strategy to reduce waste, reuse and recycle and reduce climate change. We were invited by Eco schools to provide a presentation and instrument making workshop for 50 head teachers, deputy heads and class teachers. Following this St Georges Primary commissioned Melody Makers to run a staff workshop for all their school and to run 5 after school clubs for children and families. Also, In November and December 2014 we were commissioned by Wirral Eco Schools to undertake a huge instrument making project in 6 Primary schools across the Wirral. Every year group in each school participated in the workshops and made instruments and learnt songs with clear environmental messages to reduce, reuse and recycle. We were invited to the launch of the Climate Change Strategy "Cool Yule Event" at the Town Hall in Wallasey to perform our songs with children from the schools.
We were invited by the Liverpool Irish Festival to run a 2 hour instrument making workshop at the Museum of Liverpool on the 17th October 2015. This workshop was also sponsored by the Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority and Wirral Eco Schools. Children and families made their own instruments and performed for an audience in the foyer at the museum following the workshop.
The material implemented has boosted the confidence of shy children and improved their pitch and a sense of pulse has been noticeable. - New Brighton Primary
