By September 8, 2017 No Comments

Layne Garrett is an improvising musician, instrument builder, and educator based in Takoma DC.  At his booth at KIDfest, you will be able to play his constructed instruments including self-built xylophones, found-object percussion, and electronic instruments.

Layne has been building and playing instruments of his own design for over 10 years. He has taught music and instrument building classes, camps, and workshops at KID Museum, Rhizome DC, FutureMakers, Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, and area schools.

Featured in the photo is a triangle harp which Layne Garrett worked with 9th grade students to construct.
