Marion Street Elementary School students are putting their own creative spin on music during their music classes. Under the direction of music teacher Kara Boulay, students in grades 1-5 have started using recyclable materials to make their own instruments.

Students have been creating whatever instrument they desire with their materials. Some have successfully built a guitar using a tissue box, rubber bands and paper towel roll, while others have made drums using milk cartons and more. The lesson allows students to not only become innovators but also has inspired teamwork and an enhanced love of music. The classes will perform with their instrument creations before the school year comes to a close.
