Musical instruments have helped us to communicate and express ourselves since the dawn of human culture. Learning to build and play our own musical instruments slows us down, connects us to our bodies and to our self-expression, and helps us to connect with a sense of wonder, curiosity and play. In this 4 session workshop we will get an introduction to musical instruments that have been made across Central and South America for thousands of years and learn to build our own clay flutes using ancient pottery-making techniques. At the end of the course we will learn to explore and play our own unique instruments. All are welcome, and no previous experience with clay, instruments or music is necessary. Everyone can enjoy turning mud into music! See student pricing for 13-18 year olds. A materials fee of $10 is due to Maryland Hall Pottery at the first class. Contact the instructor with any questions at email@example.com. No class on Jan 28 while ocarina are kiln fired. The last day will be in a quiet "zen" room 205 for learning to play your Ocarina.

Musical Autist Troupe is an inclusive group of individuals 15 years of age and older, with and without disabilities, as well as high school/college student interns, and guest musicians. Time is spent each week sharing songs with one another, which can be a recording of a favorite song, or a piece that is performed live for the group if a participant so chooses. This group is a hybrid class with in person and virtual courses led simultaneously by board certified music therapists.Group leaders often introduce music which celebrates neurodiversity, self-advocacy and empowerment. Class time is also spent rehearsing and recording songs to be performed in advocacy events facilitated by The Musical Autist non-profit. Previous music skills are a benefit, but not required.
