Making Musical Instruments 🎶

On 28th June 2024, the vibrant classrooms of Vidhya Peetham i-School buzzed with excitement as our creative Grade 5 students embarked on an innovative journey of *Making Musical Instruments* 🥁🎸. This hands-on activity aimed to educate students about the various types of musical instruments—percussion, string, and wind—and how these instruments produce sound. The goal was to foster creativity and a deeper understanding of sound mechanics, all while having a fantastic time!
