Musical Instrument Making with Louie Miranda

    MFTA Third Thursday
    Thursday, June 17, 7-8pm

    Join us live this Music Month for a creative reuse instrument-making workshop with musician and MFTA Teaching Artist, Louie Miranda. Through MFTA’s education programs, Miranda teaches students and educators how to use music and sound as a tool for learning and ways to create musical instruments from commonly found objects. During this event, you’ll learn how to transform the items around your home into unique music-makers.

    MFTA is pleased to present this event in partnership with the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, as a part of the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment’s New York Music Month Extended Play. Attendees may take part in the event, which will be live-streamed to YouTube by submitting questions in the chat for Louie Miranda during the event.
