Bottle Band / Musical Instruments

Bottle Band
Bottle Band

Music education contributes to the eradication of poverty, not only by improving children’s communication skills and memory, but also by building their self-confidence and making it easier for them to reject negative influences and working towards their future. T.S.O.M attaches easily to plastic bottles of different shapes and sizes, instantly turning them into wind instruments. Tone depends on the shape of the bottle and how much liquid it contains, while holes along the top of the attachment allow different notes to be played. It has low cost and can encourage children to make better use of all kinds of waste goods.
