Makin' Music with Visionary Centre for the Performing Arts

For Day 21 of our #40DaysofPLAY our goal is to make beautiful music together. Not only are we planning a sing-along, but also making our very own homemade guitar. Our friends at Visionary Centre of Performing Arts have created a video to show us how it’s all done! But first, you’ll need to gather your materials.


  • Empty tissue box (remove the plastic)
  • Paper towel tube
  • 4 large rubber bands
  • 4 popsicle sticks
  • Pipe-cleaners
  • Paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Tape
  • Decorations (stickers, markers to colour with, etc.)
  • Glue  

Now that you have your instrument made, let’s play some music! 

Don’t forget to take a picture of your instrument and share it with us online or if you are feeling extra brave, share a video of you playing your new home-made guitar. Use the hashtag #40DaysofPLAY to be entered to win a prize from one of our Festival partners.

The City of St. Albert has worked with content developers to provide creative prompts that align with provincial public health measures, and guidance to protect the health system and the community by slowing the spread of COVID-19.

Visionary Centre for the Performing Arts ignites the joy of music and a discovery of creative expression. If you or your child is a beginner hobby musician, or an individual focused on a career in music, there is a class designed for you.
