Captioned as a “2nd Grade project to make a homemade instrument,” Homemade Xylophone - Kids has been online since October, 2006, and is a great metal and pvc pipe how to for kids, with a bit of parental assistance.

After the kids watched cdza introduce drums, they wanted to see how drums were made. This excellent DW Factory Tour describes every detail of how they make a set of drums, showcasing some awesome machinery and hand-crafted work along the way.
The cdza music team is at it again with the second episode of their series The Instrumentals: Intro to Drums. After introducing the drum set, drummer Allan Mednard compares and contrasts two kinds of rhythms: rock and jazz.
It’s a great series and fun to narrate for pre-readers; the kids’ only suggestion is that we should be much closer to Allan and the drums. Play this full screen HD to see some details of what he’s playing and how.
