Hi! My name is Esteban and I'm going to tell you about my homemade
instrument. We call it the Shaker. Now I'm going to tell you about it.
My instrument can make more
than one sound. My mom told me you could put rubber balls in a box and
it makes sound. Plus we taped a popcorn can upside down so the arms
could hit it. My dad set a place for us to paint so we painted eyes and
a face. Then we made a metal hat that makes sound.
My instrument is very
creative. It has eyeballs and buck teeth. We painted a beard red and
green. Its arms are metal hangers we attached gloves and cooking sticks
to it. My mom came up with that idea.
The instrument can
be easily moved. The instrument is a cardboard box. We were going to
use a metal birdcage. But instead I found a box and decided to do that.
But think I’m glad I didn’t use a birdcage.
The instruments family is
percussion because it’s like a drum. I hope you like my instrument.
