ERIC NAGLER MAKES MUSIC, a family activity book also titled, "30 Musical Instruments any fool can make..even me!" is a neat book I wrote with my partner, music educator Diana Buckley.

The book contains concise, illustrated instructions on how to make and play 30 interesting (some quite unusual) home made instruments out of things you might have at home or can easily retrieve from garage sales or junk shops. They range from the simple, such as the Junk Drawer Shaker, Plastic Bottle Calabash, to the more complicated Gazernowich, the Washboard and my infamous "Sewerphone." And interspersed throughout the book are fascinating motivational tales from my musical childhood. This book is a great resource for parents, teachers, librarians and kids. $10
