In celebration of making music with individuals of all ages and abilities in greater Charlotte since 2013, we're releasing this free Coloring Book designed by PMT Staff Ashley Tisdale, MT-BC.
We hope that this will be an enjoyable resource for you as it includes various instruments, a scene from an individual music therapy session, plus a page for you to design your own facial mask!

Remove bottom of spring pan (if using spring pan) or remove lid of cookie tin, we will refer to this as the “frame”
Lay a strip of packaging tape tightly across the diameter of your frame and a second perpendicular to the first (shown below)
Continue to place tape tightly across the frame in star shaped pattern until you have a completed surface - you will need a lot of tape for this!
Take your bamboo skewers and bunch them together into a cylindrical shape, Tape the center, top, and bottom of the skewers to secure in place - cut off the pointy tips and shape into a smooth edge
Tightly wrap the rough end for better grip. Cover at bottom of stick with small piece then wrap around like a tennis racket or baseball/softball bat
Play your drum!
We hope this was a fun project for you. Share feedback below or post to one of our social media channels!
