A Musical…Vegetable?

Anything can be a musical instrument if you use your imagination–that’s something I firmly believe. Even so, when I first heard of the carrot clarinet, I was more than a little surprised. And then I was outright astonished when I heard how good it sounded!

This is the making-of video–if you’re only interested in hearing how it sounds, skip to around the four minute mark and be prepared to marvel!

If you’d like to make your own, Linsey Pollak, the musician in the video, shows how. Note that you’ll need both an alto saxophone mouthpiece and a drill, so this will require both a trip to the music store and parental supervision for younger readers.
