I made this instrument with my Grandma. She has a lot of old buttons that she has saved over the years, and bells too! Grandma gave me the buttons and bells, and I found some wire and needle nose pliers. I strung the buttons and bells onto the wire and used the needle nosepliers to secure it. We also found a silver handle to attach to the "Music Maker Shaker."
I make sound by shaking the instrument. I can shake it harder for a loud dynamics. I can't change the pitch of my instrument.
