Making Music with Everyday Objects
Saturday, November 22nd at 3:00pm
Join the amazing and dynamic musical duo Acopladitos for an interactive musical experience as you create your own musical instruments using recycled materials during an exiting music/art making session. This 90-minute workshop will be structured in the format of Loisaida Center’s one-time specialized workshop or talk program the X-Change Express.
Acopladitos will demonstrate how to make a variety of musical instruments using everyday objects, especially those found at home. They will share with the audience their playful approach to the idea of “sound explorations.” More than making your own instruments, Acopladitos will share some musical ideas to guide the audience through a creative composition process that the entire family can practice at home. The last portion of the talk consists of a “hands on” approach to music making where the audience will have the opportunity of playing the instruments.
Acopladitos is dedicated to teaching Spanish language through music and movement to young learners.
This events is open to a general audience, but will specifically benefit early childhood teachers and parents.
We hope you can join us and help us spread the word!

About Acopladitos:Acopladitos is a Spanish immersion music program for young children. The word “acopladitos” in Spanish can be translated to mean “being together in complete harmony” and refers to much more than just music. The program is designed to cultivate the child’s first musical encounters through singing, creative movement, music-making, games and dramatic play. A presentation by Acopladitos incorporates charming original songs with a repertoire of popular Latin American children’s songs. Designed and led by composer Angelica Negrón and ethno-musicologist Noraliz Ruiz, the program was created to fill a void in early childhood Spanish-language music education in NYC. This team of Brooklyn-based experienced educators and creative artists will engage the children in a collaborative and exciting musical experience that will nurture their artistic, intellectual, physical and social-emotional development. We are interested in collaborating with Loisaida Center in order to bring fun and interactive programming to the children of Loisaida and reach out to the community at large.
