Teen Synth Jam @ Claremont


Celebrate the spirit of jazz with an improvizational synth jam at Claremont! We'll be using a variety of electronic instruments, from iPads to banana pianos built with MaKey MaKey invention kits and hand constructed KORG synthesizers created using Littlebits circuitry kits! Our creations will be uploaded to Soundcloud for sharing with friends and family. Participants are encouraged to bring instruments from home as well.
