There’s so much more to making music than guitar – though we do love the guitar! Explore instruments from all over the world with Liz and a bunch of her talented friends. Folk instruments from all over the world, pedals, loopers, unusual electronic instruments, drum machines, and the wide, wonderful world of synths! We’ll learn about a variety of different musical traditions, hear performances from experts and enthusiasts, and even learn to make an instrument.
