Montana State University Professor Bill Clinton created a course that challenged his architecture students to build their own instruments, learn how to play them, and then perform as a band. Bill says of his class,”We were exploring the connection between music and architecture and in the process I tricked them into learning how to work with wood, metal and glass.”
Frank Zappa said, “Writing about Music is like dancing about Architecuture”. Perhaps now we can say “learning about Architecture is like making Music to dance to.”
Here is a video of the class performing with their hand made instruments.
