Discovery: The Funk Box Experience
Feb 12 - Feb 16, 2024
THE FUNK BOX EXPERIENCE is BACK! This unique experience is an engaging and hands-on learning session for all students. The hands-on portion of the session teaches participants about creative collaboration and the foundation of song creation. With the wave of a hand, motion sensors trigger instrumental samples, like those used by funk musicians from the different eras of funk. Instruments such as the electric guitar, electric bass guitar, electric organ and piano, horns, and synthesizers. Jam-packed with the latest technology, THE FUNK BOX EXPERIENCE is a fun and playful way to teach the basics of timing, counting, rhythm, meter, and collaboration.
This unique experience is limited to a maximum of 30 students per time slot.
Created by The Funk Music Hall of Fame & Exhibition Center.
