Human creativity and music just have to come out one way or another. It's wonderful to see and hear what can be done when someone is resourceful and imaginative. And all the kids get to share in the creation of real music with whatever is found nearby.

Reminds me of the first time I encountered a cardboard dulcimer. After playing it a little, I wondered why I work so hard with different woods to get the same sound you get out of an inexpensive instrument.

Then there's the cardboard-box bass that Elderly Instruments sells. Doesn't look like much, but it sure sounds like an upright bass fiddle!

Amazing! And I fret over having several dulcimers so I can get just the right sound. Inspirational that you can make something as amazing as music from a garbage pile.

I saw that earlier this year. I was amazed. Very inspirational. It made me appreciate my life and not take things for granted.
