Description

Are you a tech head or just love electronic music production?
Learn how to build your own little DIY instrument in this fun 1-day synth workshop for 12-18 year olds.

This workshop will inspire students to create their own technology that they can build and then play. Learn about electronics and sound through the history of electronic instrument building. Throughout the course of the day you'll make three different synths: Dub Siren, Stutter and Atari. Play your synth and record it. Hack and experiment with circuits to make new sounds.

The price of workshop includes the synth that students will take home to impress their family and friends!
