East Forest Elementary Students Makes Canjos

Mrs. Preisel’s 5th and 6th-grade students at East Forest recently built canjos with the help of members from the Porch Music Store in Franklin. Knowledgeable volunteers donated their time and materials to instruct the students on how to make their own instrument.   A canjo is an early string instrument and is made from an old soup can.  The students were also given tuners to keep their instruments in tune as they put together several folk songs to be performed at the Spring Concert at East Forest!
