Supersonics '24

With Phil Dadson

Next Available: Fri, 19 Jul 10:00AM (NZST)
4 hours 30 minutes


Due to past success and popular demand, Phil Dadson, founder of the legendary From Scratch music group, is running another fun, sound-making workshop where the kids get creative and build a set of unique and inventive musical instruments using materials supplied and partly prepared to streamline the flow of the session.

Phil brings a background of exciting DIY instrument-making ideas to the workshop and the kids get to not only explore and construct their own cool solutions to making sounds, but also have a blast playing the instrument they make together and take away at the end of the session.

Caregivers are invited to join us at 2:15pm, for a special performance by the participants.

"...the kids had the best time inventing, creating and making instruments and music was such a unique experience. Thanks so much. The kids had no idea they were learning from a living kiwi muso-artist legend." - I Arnoux
