2012 Summer Program

John Madin is an inventor, musician and teacher. His 1 and 1/2 octave Marimba is both simple to build, beautiful and clarion voiced. Construct a 1 and 1/2 octave instrument with a box resonator. Tune the maple keys with a digital pitch gauge and chisels. The week combines woodworking, finishing, constructing beathers, tuning and…playing. Jon has written songs especially for this instrument. If time allows, build some of his wacky instruments. Experience music from a whole new perspective.
