Musical Fruit and Veg Recipies
Vegetables can make remarkable musical instruments. The process of making them enables pupils to apply what they have learned, about plants and sound, to create their own instruments. They also learn about the trials of experimentation, whilst giving their creativity free rein. Click one of the members of the vegetable quartet below, or the menu on the left, to discover videos and recipes for a number of vegetable instruments. (some recipes available November 2008).
Once you have made your instruments you can then create you musical ensemble piece. To see what can be achieved have a look at the 'Vienna Vegetable Orchestra'.
