We begin on the farm, the Key Strings farm, a Violin farm. We start our animal adventure looking at how animals helped craft the instruments we play today. From goats horns to Gems-horns, sheep tummy’s to gut string instruments and the animal skins of the African drum. The use of materials from the natural environment helps us to make the instruments. In turn the instruments make music that paints pictures and tell stories of the animal kingdom that let our imaginations soar. All part of a great big circle of life…and music! Guaranteed to Monkey Around!
