Dr. Bob's Soundschool And AADL's Musical Instrument Collection Launch For Grades K-5

Wednesday August 1, 2012: 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

Learn about the science of sound with Dr. Bob's SoundSchool, presented by the Bob Moog Foundation!

Experience the magic of electronic music while exploring the physics of sound generation and travel; the intertwining of ideas and invention; and the history of Moog Music. This event includes a chance for hands-on experimentation with electronic instruments such as a theremins, synthesizers and oscilloscopes.

Participants will also have a chance to be the very first to try out AADL's upcoming circulating musical instrument collection. The instrument collection will feature musical gear that you can check out from the Library, from such noted manufacturers as Moog, Korg, Maywa Denki, Bleep Labs, Chamber of Sounds, Folktek, Critter & Guitari and more!

This event is for grades K - 5. It will be repeated in a special evening event for teens and adults from 7 - 8:30 pm.
