As our first year on the bus came to a close, we finally got a chance to hit the road with one of our favorite projects: building an electric guitar out of a cigar box! We worked with one of the 7th grade band classes at Cedar Park middle school over several days. Aside from one exploding cigar box, (well, it didn’t exactly explode, it just broke and we were able to fix it) we were able to get all the students through the build in around 7 hours, with a little time to learn some blues after that!
Our friend Colin made a great video that walks you through what this process felt like. We were so excited to get tools back in the schools!
