Building Guitars--


KIDS' HUB (all /kids pages)




Here are some pictures of Paul Rubenstein's Working Playground "Building Music" classes making electric guitars in the 2006/2007 school year.

These students are from the High School of Public Service on the Wingate campus in Brooklyn, and Franklin K. Lane High School, also in Brooklyn. Paul teaches another class at John Adams High School in Queens, which started later, so there are no pictures yet. In addition to the guitars, we will be making amplifiers and square wave oscillators. Then we will improvise, compose and record music for an online radio show, similar to what we did last year. Stay tuned for pictures of the finished guitars, the amps and oscillators, and the radio show. There has even been some record label interest...
