Music is for everyone — no prior experience required! Make Music! invites kids and families to celebrate the joy of sound with a variety of inventive activities, including playing dandelion trumpets, conducting percussion conversations, and composing their own pieces.
Musician and educator Norma Jean Haynes brings the pioneering work of Ann Sayre Wiseman and John Langstaff to a new generation of kids ages 5 and up, focusing on the playfulness, spontaneity, and creativity of music. Kids explore rhythm with clapping, body drumming, and intonations. They learn to create found sound with kitchen pots and pans, the Sunday paper, or even the Velcro on their sneakers. And step-by-step instructions show how to make 35 different instruments, from chimes and bucket drums to a comb kazoo and a milk-carton guitar.

“This is a luscious book that will inspire and delight. Open any page and let it carry you. Every classroom and every family will feel uplifted and welcomed into the world of music.”
“A great book for anyone (musicians and non-musicians alike!) looking to make music a regular part of family life. The authors offer inventive and remarkably simple ways to create your own music, using your first “instruments” (your voice and body) along with ordinary, found items. This playful, practical guide will open your eyes to the myriad of sounds and sound-producing possibilities that surround us every day. In today’s fast-paced, push-button, screen-time world, this book is a breath of fresh air for any music-loving family.”
“This is the must-have guide for music-making with children. It will inspire every child’s inner composer and encourage all of us to follow our ears.”
by Norma Jean Haynes, Ann Sayre Wiseman and John Langstaff
